[I know, 80s movie tie-ins two days in a row, but somehow I missed this one last time around and ended up featuring it out of season. I really had fun with this and wanted to feature it properly. -2020 Jane] Remember my Halloween Monster Music Video Countdown from a few years back? Well, I […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Flashback Friday Edition"
More 80s movie tie-in goodness. The Dudes of Wrath were actually a briefly-lived (a couple songs on a single soundtrack) supergroup consisting of Paul Stanley (KISS), Desmond Child (better known as the writer of half the power-ballad-hair-band hits of the time than as a vocalist), Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard), Guy Mann-Dude, Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Shocker"
Nanowar of Steel is probably one of the funniest yet epicly rocking acts in the euro-metal scene today. Seriously, you need to check out their stuff. This isn’t the best introduction to their oeuvre (that is probably Valhallelujah) but it ain’t a terrible place to start. Also this is basically the plot of the Rae […]Read more "Monster, Monster II -And Then I Noticed That She Was a Gargoyle"
Yes, it’s Vincent Price again, this time with more literal monsters in the shape of the Muppets. But it seems fitting, having watched Madhouse for the first time over the weekend, to give him a day all his own. Madhouse is currently on Amazon Prime and certainly worth a watch for either Price or Cushing […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – You’ve Got a Friend"
Look, it’s Elvira. If you came here expecting anything other than two minutes and forty-six seconds of double-entendres about breasts, you are 100% in the wrong place. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – Two Big Pumpkins"
C’mon, y’all know I love me some Lordi (and some KISS) so there was no way none of their newer stuff was making the list. This one is interesting as it was written by the Starchild himself, Paul Stanley, and Afro-punk pioneer Jean Beauvoir (of Plasmatics fame) way back in the 80s, and had things […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Saturday Morning Cartoon Edition"
[Because some things are too good to only share once – 2020 Jane] So Skillet is not the sort of Christian rock that you’re likely to hear at your next praise and worship service (well, maybe Awake and Alive, I don’t actually have any idea, being terminally Anglican and having not attended a modern praise […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Flashback Friday"
As elder son pointed out, orcs are indeed monsters. Even when they’re DJ-ing. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – Diggy Diggy Hole (Dance Remix)"
I have to say that the 80s produced the absolute best horror movie tie-in videos. Often brief works of visual art in their own right (although not so much here) as well as a great way to get the word of a new flick out to nerdy teen horror fans (were there any other kind […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Trick Or Treat"
