In his later solo years, teen idol Mike Hard would look back on these formative time of God Bullies and defend their snippy guitar pop stylings, even coining a new term for it -- "dirty pop." I contacted Mike last week in his home in L.A. but he says he's had it the press and he's just gonna "keep on keeping it real" and continue to produce his brand of hip-hopping sweet pop. He says it's all about keeping the "girlies movin'".
(This is all a lie - God Bullies were teen idols only in some far, forgotten corner of a Hell populated by suicided overweight teenagers and masochistic pygmies).

Tom Hazelmeyer on his young charges:
TB: Were the God Bullies as whacked out in real-life as they were on record? Did the act extend beyond the stage or was it not even an act?
Haze: No, they were definitely a collection of miscreants and oddballs. It definitely wasn’t a case of putting a burning bible out on your bare chest during the set, then go to your day job as an accountant right after. Mike Hard is all you see on stage all the time, ha-ha.
