When you think 'Britny Fox' ... does this group and song come to mind?



Pick any hour of the day and on some classic rock radio station you will hear Aerosmith's Dream On. While the song is a classic, we could only dream that those corporate stations would mix up their playlists and play another Dream On by Britny Fox.

Britny Fox is a hard rock band from Philadelphia whose guitar riffs made waves on MTV in the late '80s with cheesy videos like Girls School and Long Way To Love.  In 1989, Britny Fox tried to hit the pop charts with the more melodic Dream On and while the song charted on the Mainstream Rock Charts it did not chart as a pop single.

Brinty Fox was a recognizable band with incredibly teased metal hair and the shrieking of lead singer Dizzy Dean Davidson. The video  for Dream On  is a black and white affair set in the desolate southwest with a boss from hell and reasons why you should rent a U-Haul instead of using rope when relocating. Dream On is an ear pleaser and dare I say, sounds catchier than anything Bon Jovi submitted in the late '80s. This year, Britny Fox reunited (without Davidson) and will attempt their comeback with new material.
