Retro Video of the Week: "Summertime Girls" by Y&T

Y&T was an underrated LA-based hard rock and metal band, scoring several charting albums in the mid '80s and a few charting singles, but never quite making it over the hump into superstardom.  "Summertime Girls" is their highest-charting single, making it up to #55 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1985, although it's not really a representation of the harder rocking nature of most of their music.  The video is spectacular, as only a hard rock party video could be before the spread of AIDS.
