Although Bang Tango was often lumped in with the whole 80s glam metal movement (their deliberate 'pretty boy' looks and the fact that they hailed from Los Angeles, CA made it inevitable in their view), the hard rock quintet was one of the few L.A. metal groups to incorporate funk rockinto its sound, happening some time before the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More made it somewhat trendy to do so. Perhaps best known for their arena-ready tune "Someone Like You", the band's lineup consisted of Joe Leste (vocals), Kyle Stevens (guitar), Mark Knight (guitar), Kyle Kyle (bass), and Tigg Ketler (drums), and the budding group gained the interest of MCA Records shortly after the quintet issued the in-concert recording 'Live Injection' in 1987. Their major-label debut, 'Psycho Cafe', was issued in 1989.

Though gaining a significant fan response, the group seemed cursed to have come in at the tail-end of the pop metal boom. Despite MTV's Headbanger's Ball program giving some air time to their single "Someone Like You", a release that came complete with a TV-hopeful music video, their album failed to break the band into the big time. Still, "Someone Like You" has ended-up included in various multi-artist hard rock album releases.
