Ah well, it’s The Ramones and some Steven King from back when he was still scary, so what more do you want from me on a rerun-type Friday morning. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – Flashback Friday Edition"
You knew I’d never let you get away without more Alice Cooper, right? Although even Alice seems to have mixed up creator and created here, ‘these aren’t my arms, and these legs ain’t mine’. Eh, who cares, it’s great stuff and guitarist Kane Roberts is a real life monster in his own right. Introduction to […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Teenage Frankensterin"
More 80’s movie goodness, this time from the J. Geils Band. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – Fright Night"
In all honesty there is enough good stuff by The Merkins (yes, I know) out there that I could have featured a video a day all month. The musical parodies are dead on with the originals, which takes a lot more talent and work than folks credit. Here we have a whole collection of Monsters. […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – I’ll Kill You That Way"
More 80s movie goodness, although oddly, not a horror movie. But there is a devil in the video, so I’ll allow it. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster – Burn In Hell"

[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"
