The band was discovered after their manager sent a demo tape to a studio in Los Angeles, completely unbeknownst to the band members. An executive was listening to their demo tape on a radio on his desk when Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. walked by, heard Linda Chase singing, and said that he wanted the band on a plane the following weekend.
In addition to "Once Bitten," another song by the band called "Stop Talking About Us" was used by MCA/Curb Records on the aforementioned soundtrack. This song was not written for the movie, but was actually a demo that the band had previously recorded. The version that appears on the soundtrack album is the demo.
3 Speed enjoyed considerable success after the release of the Once Bitten soundtrack; at one point they were even opening for Pat Benatar. MCA Records, however, never petitioned the band to record a full-length LP, commissioning them instead to write songs for more soundtracks, including those for Rad and Savage Streets.
Chase continues to write & perform music and work in recording studios.
