Tesla Information Continued
Tesla's music fitted well with the blasting sound of the 80s glam bands but was more bluesy and lyrics dealt with other themes than just the usual, girls, alcohol and violence. But what set them even more apart from their contemporaries was their T-shirt and jeans image which was in strong contrast for the time, characteristic of leather pants and flashy-make up.
Tesla's popular 1990 remake of "Signs", originally recorded by the Five Man Electrical Band, is probably the most mainstream of Tesla's hits. However, many fans remember fondly Tesla's other hits such as "Gettin' Better", "Modern Day Cowboy", "Little Suzi", "Edison's Medicine" and "Love Song".
The band derived their name, certain album and song names, and some song content from events relating to Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American inventor and electrical engineer born in the 19th century in Austro-Hungary. In 2002 they were featured in the Rock Never Stops Tour alongside other 80s rock bands.
