How about a little Maiden for Throwback Thursday. Because no matter how cool you are, you will never be Bruce Dickinson cool. And that’s OK. Introduction to Monster, Monster series here.

I have not clue one what the hell this is about. But cartoon troll band, yay! Introduction to Monster, Monster series here.

So shortly before they threw the makeup back on and went back to mostly just stagnantly doing the same old stuff that made them famous in the 70s, KISS dropped the Revenge album. By far the heaviest (and in my opinion, musically best) stuff they ever turned out (yeah, yeah, Destroyer, whatever, this is my […]

So we’ve spent a good 40+ years now with the re-imagining of the vampire. We’ve gone from Stoker’s living corpse who corrupts not just the body, but the soul of his victims, to the suave seducers of the 70s (I’m looking at you Frank Langella) and 80s (yesterday’s The Lost Boys), to the new millennium’s […]

And no, I don’t have any idea why a video for the biggest pretty-boy vampire flick of the 80’s consists entirely of a bunch of dancers traveling in a post-apocalyptic cattle truck. I like to imagine it’s supposed to be 25 years later, the vampires have taken over the world and these are some of […]

Talk about the art of constant reinvention. We’ve seen Alice in the 70s and 80s, here’s a taste of what he was up to during the 1990s. Not the best monster video, but the song has become such a Halloween staple (though generally in bowdlerized versions) that I really couldn’t justify leaving it off the […]

A little something for Throwback Thursday. Forgive the terrible picture quality, as far as I can tell this was taken from a live broadcast and only exists on a poor quality kinescope, but there don’t seem to be a lot of contemporary recordings of Sheb Wooley actually performing this and this one was to much […]

Ok, I am going to lose all my Richmond and VCU cred, but, um, I’ve always pretty much thought GWAR’s music sucked. I get the joke, I admire the testicular fortitude and creativity, and it’s a hell of a show. I just hate the songs. Sorry. Oh, and their GWAR Blood red ale sucks too. […]

Once again we see eveidence that Freddy Krueger’s greatest weakness wasn’t teenaged girls but cheesy hair metal. Vinnie Vincent’s enormous ego meant that we wouldn’t see a lot from this lineup, but hey, it did lead to Mark and Dana launching Slaughter a few years later, so I can’t complain too much. Then again if […]
