Toxic Substances was the Opening Act

Back in (the) 90s I was 14 and begging my mom to let me go to a Guns n Roses concert. I kept nagging until she got frustrated but couldn’t remember the band name and said:
“I’M NOT LETTING YOU GO TO ANY DAMN DEATH AND FLOWERS CONCERT!”
I couldn’t stop laughing.
