About this album

Pornograffitti (also titled as Extreme II: Pornograffitti) is the second album released by Boston rock band Extreme. The title is a portmanteau of pornography and graffiti.

The album sold very well, peaking at #10 on the Billboard 200 and being certified double platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA. It is the band’s best selling album. Two singles from Pornograffiti, “More Than Words” and “Hole Hearted,” made the top-5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two other tracks, “Decadence Dance” and “Get The Funk Out,” made the lower half of Billboard’s rock chart.

Musically, Pornograffitti is dominated by metal guitar riffs, often with funky, syncopated timing, and incendiary, high-speed metal solos. The record provided Bettencourt with widespread admiration from rock guitar enthusiasts and continual exposure in guitar playing publications such as Guitar World and Guitar School.

“More than Words”, a gentle acoustic ballad, and “Hole Hearted”, an acoustic folk song, were perhaps the least representative tracks on the album, both in terms of their musical style and thematic tone.

Pornograffitti was recorded and mixed at Scream Studios, Studio City, Los Angeles, California with producer Michael Wagener.
