Glorious Ladies of Rocktober Song #5: "Out Here All Night" by Damone

Damone was a Boston-based band who put out three albums between 2003 and 2008, before breaking up.  As with many bands, I discovered them thanks to Pandora.  I have the band's second album, 2006's Out Here All Night, which was their most successful, reaching #168 on the Billboard album charts.  Their sound is a nice combination of hard rock, power pop, metal, and glam metal (and last song on the album is a soothing, acoustic cover of Iron Maiden's "Wasted Years").  Lead signer Noelle LeBlanc can wail when necessary, and can also bring it down a notch and sing like a normal human being when she needs to do so.  I would call her White Christmas if I knew her -- certainly if I dreamed about her.

"Out Here All Night" (the song) got to #32 on Billboard's Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart, and it has been featured on multiple video games, including Madden '07, Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam, and Rock Band.  The song is a pretty straightforward hard rock/metal song, and the video is a nice prelude to Halloween, with its homage to slasher flicks.
