Answer: Black Crowes

The year 1990 is an important part of this question, as the song "Hard to Handle" was written by Otis Redding in 1968.

"Hot For Teacher" was the fourth track released on that album, and was known for its complex drum part as well as its music video, which was in high rotation on MTV at the the time.
