But when we got our breath back, we realised how much sense it made. Born This Way and Justin Hawkins's recently-reformed rockers both owe a great deal to '80s hair rock and they both like a bit of dress-up in the theatre of pop. To celebrate their appointment to Mother Monster's tour bus, here's ten fast facts about The Darkness. 1.
