R.I.P. Lou Albano, Cyndi Lauper Video Fave

Posted By on Wed, Oct 14, 2009 at 11:26 AM

Sad news this morning that Captain Lou Albano -- the wrestling legend who joined forces with Cyndi Lauper in the '80s in the bizarre/infamous WWF rock & roll storyline -- has died at the age of 76. Albano was known for appearing in Lauper's music videos in the '80s -- including a few of the following.

"She Bop"

"Girls Just Want to Have Fun"

"Goonies 'R' Good Enough"
