Released:
Label: Warner Bros.
Afterburner continued ZZ Top's total dominance of MTV and FM radio in '80s America, with "Sleeping Bag" hitting No. 1 and "Velcro Fly" becoming a minor hit. With synthesizers taking an even more prominent role in the music than on Eliminator, but with little loss of the band's time-tested boogie power, ZZ Top are among the only dudes ever to make the transition to a pure '80s style while retaining their souls. It helps when you're writing songs with titles like "Woke Up with Wood."
