Today I'd thought try something new-ish again, and decided to put that promised new spin on a not so old weekly feature here @ The House of Fun.
So today, for the brand new edition of the Top 5, you're getting a guest host to start the new era off.
So give it up for that true limey, coke-snorting son of a bitch you all know and love,
The Mirror Master:

Aye, 'tis your ol' friend the Mirror Master here, and I wus told I had to sit in and do a wee stint as guest host uv today's edition of the Top 5. So today laddies, I suppose I canna' tell you all about my top 5 favorite Scottish rock bands of all time. And if'n you don' fancy that, feel free to stick aroound later so's I can get to ya all proper like.
Ready? Good, now wit the show as it were.....
5). The Proclaimers
Ya don' haveta walk 500 Miles to enjoy the music from these bug-eyed brothers, but I would. Thankfully I canna just travel that length if need be wit' my mirrors, and go straight on to the source. You can have yurself a good chuckle, but I dare yu to na tell me you weren't dancing to "500 Miles" winnit came out. Go on, I double-dog dare ya.
You can say that the Reid brothers, Charlie and Craig are "One-Hit Wonders" all ya' want, but that jus means they have one more hit than'n ya' normal people do.
4). Simple Minds
Seriously people, how could ya no love Simple Mind? Who will ever forgit their contribution to 80's pop culture by lending the iconic movie, The Breakfast Club, their huge smash, "Don't You Forget About Me."
Aye, and while I did have a thing for Molly Ringwald, I haveta confess to wanting to have a go at the wee weird brunette that ate her own hair flakes on her sandwich. What?, You all know I do love me wee flakes!!!!
Plus I just loved Judd Nelson's character. Hey, I'ma Rogue, 'tis natural to root for the bastard. He's an honorary Rogue as far as I'm concerned.
Simple Mind had other hits as well , but none as well remembered as that one.
3). The Skids
Say what ya will, but fuk American Punk bands! Fuk The Ramones and Blondie, which wasn't even a true proper punk band, but a pop band in disguise.
Naw thank you, I'll gladly take The Skids thank yu very much!
The Skids wer the type of band, that other punk bands of the time, such as The Clash and The Sex Pistols seemed ta' imitate and steal licks from. 'Tis true! 'Tis damn true!
If ya na believe me, take a listen to such classic punk anthems like "Sweet Suburbia", "The Saints are coming", and their biggest smash sing to date, "Into the valley."
Lead guitarist Sam Adamson left the group to go start another classic Scottish band in the mid-80's, Big Country. 'Tis true, or as that maukit eejet, Mr. Morbid would say, "Look it up!"
2). Bay City Rollers
Seriously, an you cannae ask the lads, every time it's Saturday Night, I start to go "S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, Day!!!!"
I defy you to na' get off yuir arse and dance when this comes on the radio. Ya know you do, so donnae front.
If I have to explain why this particular band is me favorit' after jus sayin' their name, then I'm comin' to yur house and slittin' your wee throats.
"Hair of the dog", "Don't Judas Me", "Broken down angel", "Bad, bad boy", I could go on, but you git my point. Hell, that fooked up mess he calls himself Axl Rose, even wanted the band to sing at his wedding in 1990, but they wisely declined. Ha, fook Axl!
And since we're all good mates here, I don't mind sayin' how much I like quoting them too. Like when me an' the Rogues are tussling with the Flasher. I jus' love to say "Now you're messing with a son of a bitch!" right before I blast 'em wit my mirror guns. Ha, classic right?
And that's all for me for this edition of the Top 5. Now remember kids to stay bad, and stay clear of cops and the Flash. And if'n yur a goodie-good, then stay clear of me.....or else!!!!!
Is he gone yet?
Have a good weekend folks;)
