The Cycle Sluts from Hell
were an American heavy metal
band from the late 1980s to early 1990s. They were only together briefly but are remembered for their name.
The band comprised four women singing under the stage names Queen Vixen, She-Fire of Ice, Honey One Percenter and Venus Penis Crusher, backed by four amazing musicians who at times eclipsed the girls. The music was written by most of the band, who were never given proper credit. Such as Lord Road Kill (Pete Lisa), Tom Von Doom, Christopher Moffett (Dude), and others who were not in the band. The lyrics were written by the girls, and were incredibly funny, tongue-in-cheek, and filled with innuendo
The Group had a pretty high profile in the New York City area in the late 80's and performed shows with artists such as Jane's Addiction at The Cat Club, Danzig at The old Studio 54, Joey Ramone at the Ritz and also at the Palladium on 14th St. just to name a few.
The band's self-titled debut album was their only release. The song "I Wish You Were a Beer" is their best known track, written by Honey 1%er and Tom Von Doom. The video clip for it got MTV
airplay when released and still appears regularly around the world (e.g. Australia for Australian Broadcasting Corporation Rage program
). The track also featured in the MTV show Beavis and Butthead
