Status Quo was een populaire rockband waarvan de muziek gekarakteriseerd wordt door een sterke boogie- en boogiewoogiestijl. De klassieke bezetting bestond enerzijds uit oprichters Alan Lancaster en Francis Rossi en anderzijds uit Rick Parfitt en John Coghlan. Status Quo heeft meer dan 20 hits in de Top 40 gehad maar hebben nooit een nummer 1 hit gescoord. Wel bereikte 2 singles de 2e plaats als hoogste notering (Down down en Roll over lay down).

De band begon in 1962. De eerste grote hits waren psychedelische nummers zoals "Pictures of Matchstick Men", "Black Veils of Melancholy" en "Ice in the Sun",

De band ontwikkelde in de jaren zeventig een eigen kenmerkende stijl van weinig akkoorden, makkelijke teksten en een stevig ritme. De band had wereldwijd grote hits met onder andere "Mean Girl", "Down Down", "Whatever You Want", "Rockin' All Over the World", "The Wanderer" en "In the Army Now", maar de groep brak nooit door in de VS.

Midden jaren tachtig nam het succes af en verlieten sommige bandleden de groep. Rick Parfitt overleed op 22 december 2016 op 68-jarige leeftijd. Toch bracht de groep in 2019 een nieuw album uit "Backbone".





Songtekst

Now I'm a sad one, and she was a bad one
A mean, mean girl
I never had one as greedy as that one
A mean, mean girl

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
I guess she's not the kind that I was looking for
Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
She said I was the first but there were many more

She was a big one, a met-at-a-gig once
A mean, mean girl
I felt a sick one, she was a quick one
A mean, mean girl

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
I guess she's not the kind that I was looking for
Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
She said I was the first but there were many more

Now I'm a sad one, and she was a bad one
A mean, mean girl
I never had one as greedy as that one
A mean, mean girl

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
I guess she's not the kind that I was looking for
Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
She said I was the first but there were many more

She was a big one, a met-at-a-gig once
A mean, mean girl
I felt a sick one, she was a quick one
A mean, mean girl

Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
I guess she's not the kind that I was looking for
Mean, mean, mean, mean girl
She said I was the first but there were many more
