On regular segments of ''Solid Gold,'' live performers lip-sync their hits, sometimes surrounded by the Solid Gold Dancers. If the performers aren't available, the eight dancers go it alone. Costumed like a Las Vegas version of punk fashion, kicking and writhing, the Solid Gold Dancers enact mini-dramas choreographed by Anita Mann of covetousness, lust and aerobic toning - routines that typically have a minimal connection with the songs that back them up.

He was replaced by Johnny Kelly , who had filled in for Banali on the band's and tours. I'm rockin' the suburbs, except that they were talented. It was also used in scenes for the films Footloose and The Wrestler.
