Johansen began his career in the late 1960s as a lead singer in a local Staten Island band, the Vagabond Missionaries, and later in the early 1970s as the singer/songwriter in the proto-punk band, the New York Dolls. The New York Dolls released two albums, the eponymous New York Dolls (1973) and Too Much Too Soon (1974). The bulk of the material was written by Johansen and guitarist Johnny Thunders. The Dolls were well received critically, but did not succeed commercially.

In addition to his own albums, Johansen contributed songs to the soundtracks of the films Times Square and The Aviator (“Flowers of the City” and “Ain’t Cha Glad” respectively) and guests on About Them Shoes, a CD by veteran blues man Hubert Sumlin. Another non-album track of his, “Johnsonius”, appears on the 1984 compilation A Diamond Hidden in the Mouth of a Corpse and “The Rope (The Let Go Song)”, a track originally recorded during the sessions for his eponymous first album, and published on the B-side of the single, “Funky But Chic”, a song that was performed by the original New York Dolls before breaking up.

His first two albums, David Johansen and In Style, featured several enduring originals. Sylvain Sylvain frequently performed with him, and his band covered many Dolls songs in concert; his live albums Live It Up and The David Johansen Group Live document Johansen’s reputation as an exceptional concert performer. The studio releases Here Comes the Night (which includes a signature number, “Heart of Gold”) and Sweet Revenge again showcased his strengths as a writer of new material and featured a guest appearance by jazz saxophone player Big Jay McNeely. A number of the songs on Here Comes the Night were co-written with South African musician Blondie Chaplin.

Johansen acted in several films during the 1980s and 1990s, and in 2000, had a brief role on the HBO drama series Oz. He appeared in the television series The Adventures of Pete & Pete in the episode “On Golden Pete”, in which he played a park ranger. He appeared in the Muppet Television segment of an episode of The Jim Henson Hour. Among his more prominent roles are that of the wisecracking Ghost of Christmas Past in Scrooged, as well as the part of “Looney” in the movie Let It Ride, playing opposite Richard Dreyfuss. He starred opposite Hulk Hogan and Sherman Hemsley in Mr. Nanny, and co-starred with John C. McGinley in the movie Car 54, Where Are You?, based on the television series. He can be seen in the Jim White documentary film Searching for the Wrong Eyed Jesus in which he sings a version of Geeshie Wiley’s “Last Kind Words” while in a motel room. He also had a supporting role with Mick Jagger and Emilio Estevez in the movie Freejack. He also played Halston (a hired hitman) in the anthology film Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990), in the segment “The Cat from Hell”. He was also the guest music artist on the Miami Vice episode “The Dutch Oven” (1985) where he sang “King of Babylon”. Johansen most recently portrayed the bartender in the Netflix special A Very Murray Christmas. Johansen lent his voice to the villain Ding Dong Daddy in the original Teen Titans animated series in the season 5 episode 9 episode “Revved Up”.

In the late 1980s, Johansen achieved moderate commercial success under the pseudonym Buster Poindexter, accompanied by The Uptown Horns, performing a mixture of jazz, lounge, calypso, and novelty songs, and appearing as part of the house band on the television program Saturday Night Live. As Poindexter, he scored his first hit song, “Hot Hot Hot,” which, in an interview on National Public Radio’s Fresh Air, he called “the bane of my existence,” due to its pervasive popularity. “Hot Hot Hot” was initially written and recorded by Montserratian Soca artist Arrow. As Poindexter, Johansen often appeared with his band, The Banshees of Blue. Early Poindexter releases combined an eclectic selection of covers with Johansen’s own compositions. Johansen went on to issue Buster Poindexter’s Happy Hour, an album of songs thematically linked by their subject matter: alcohol. It is his most jazz-influenced release to date. It was followed by Buster Poindexter’s Spanish Rocket Ship, a synthesis of rhythm and blues, calypso and Latin jazz.
