ZZ Top was a blues rock group from the 1970s that made it big in the 1980s with long beards and classic music videos on MTV.

Their Eliminator album was one of their best and most successful albums ever featuring their classic car that is now on display at the Rock and Roll Music Hall of Fame, I had the pleasure of seeing that car July of 2011 with my parents on a family vacation.

The Eliminator album also led to what I think are some of the most classic MTV music videos ever made right along with Michael Jackson’s Thriller music videos, a couple of music videos by Peter Frampton, I Can’t Drive 55 by Sammy Hagar and Hot For Teacher by Van Halen. What a line up…

Legs was probably the most frenetic song on guitar for the entire album, and it was about a woman’s nice looking legs. I love this music video because it is about a woman and man who are being pushed around by some crappy people but they end up together at the end of the music video in true 1980s, upbeat love story style.
