I remember this song and saw the band playing it live. It did have a questionable lyric even back then when no one really noticed. In today’s hyper-sexulized and judgemental world, this song would probably not make it so well. ON the other hand, powerful men do tend to get the girl in most cases. Is that the fault of the girl? I don’t think so. Older men should know better.
Does Walk This Way, with its lyrics about horny schoolgirls, written by a guy going out with a school-age girl, ask us to leer at schoolgirls? Is it the direct product of an era in which multiple 70s rock stars committed statutory rape by having sex with teenagers – where powerful men abused their status to exploit young and vulnerable women – and is it tainted by association? Or is it just a dirty song with a great riff?
