The Tubes are a San-Francisco based band best known for their distinctive approach to satire, parody, and popular culture critique. The cover from their UK release of the single “She’s a Beauty” is featured here. The song was released in 1983 on their album Outside Inside and was inspired by an experience in San Francisco’s Red Light District. The single would reach #10 on the US Billboard top 100 chart and #1 on Billboard’s US Top Rock Tracks on April 30, 1983. The music video for "She’s a Beauty" was a staple for the struggling upstart network MTV.
