Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits (?): Grab Them Cakes (1985)

At the end of 1985, the then-World Wrestling Federation dove headlong into the music business with the release of "The Wrestling Album" on Epic Records. Inevitably, someone was going to be tapped to represent the promotion on American Bandstand, and that someone happened to be the Junk Yard Dog (JYD).

JYD (real name Sylvester Ritter) recorded "Grab Them Cakes" as a duet with 70's disco 1-hit wonder Vicki Sue Robinson, and I don't think there isn't anyone over the age of 10 who hasn't figured out the double entendre in the title.

Sorry, but this is the only copy of the clip available at the present time. I'll bet you anything at all that Vince McMahon, who turns 72 today, is still groovin' to this track when he works out at all hours of the day. He's that kind of crazy, you know.
