There's a scene in the 1988 movie The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years where Seduce guitarist David Black — looking every bit a Joe Perry-esque rock 'n' roll star — is asked by director Penelope Spheeris, "Who's the biggest band in Detroit?" to which he answers "us." And that was no lie. The band was huge in Detroit. Elsewhere in the same movie, Black says, "I'm busting my balls at this. Of course, I wanna make it. Whatever it takes, last drop of blood, because I'm in it till the death."
