I remember reading an article in NME or so that The Blow Monkeys wanted to include a condom with their fourth album, but this was denied by some authority. Can anyone confirm this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:52, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Grocers-daughter-cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Grocers-daughter-cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

In the U.S. the Blow Monkey's are best known for "Digging Your Scene, not "You Don't Know Me" – July 2011[edit]

Removed the Allmusic line reference in the first section to "You Don't Know Me" being the Blow Monkey's best known U.S. hit, since it was mentioned further on page. Also, "You Don't Know Me" was merely a track on the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack, not a hit in the U.S.

"Digging Your Scene" reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August, 1986. "Digging Your Scene" is by far the Blow Monkey's biggest hit in the U.S. They are (I believe) a one-hit wonder with that song here in the U.S. I added the Billboard Hot 100 link (Aug 2, 1986 Billboard Magazine).
