K ronomyth 5.4: DUB LEPPARD. Mutt Lange had no business tinkering with The Cars, as evidenced by the singularly awful “Hello Again,” which sounds like a cross between a Ric Ocasek solo album and Def Leppard (vampyromania?). Yet music had lost its way in the mid 80s, and Heartbeat City became a fool’s beacon that marked the year from March (“You Might Think”) through December (“Hello Again”). A video for the song, directed by Andy Warhol, sums up the spiritually shipwrecked 80s as well as anything. The single also included a Dub Version on the flip, which features dialogue from the Looney Tunes (notably Mr. B. Bunny) and somehow manages to be dubbly annoying than the original.
