    Does anyone remember the gay band, Kitchens of Distinction?

    I had forgotten about their CD until I was putting all of my music on my external hard drive. Their song, "4 Men," still seems fresh today and I love the lyrics.

    Any other overlooked gay rockers you can think of?

    Here's a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7CGMKiFYtE

    I'm gonna go ahead and pimp out my friend Cathrine's band, Once a Pawn. I heart these two.

    My other friend Julie made this video, and they're currently signed to http://www.queercontrol.com/fr_index.cfm. This is one of my least favorite songs from them though.

    Edit: And yes, that's Cathrine on the drums. No, she's not a transsexual.

    They're not exactly overlooked(although, imho, highly underrated), but every member of the original five members of the B-52s was/is gay except one.
