    or kicked our asses with I'm a rocker.
    You really think this is GOOD?
    Never seen that version of it. This is worse than the Courtney Cox video. I like the song. It's a shame. Course, at the time I would have thought it was cool. It WAS the 80s, after all.

    This may not be as cringeworthy as some but never understood the guy in flames at the end.

    Notice the Mark Slaughter lip syncing to another dude's vocals, and the drummer was in Nelson. There is an epic level of 80's cheese going on here. Have to say it, I rocked out to that album like a MoFo when I was a little kid.

    It's weird, I'm of that generation, graduated high school in 1986. And up through high school I would say I was a fan of Ratt/Dokken/Quiet Riot and all the rest of the "hair bands" of that time. But I guess by the time I left high school and all the influence of so many other kids I just checked out of that stuff. I either listened to harder stuff like Judas Priest or got into more older stuff like Zeppelin and other 60s-70s bands, etc. So even though I was the right age at that time I was just oblivious to the last wave of 1987-1991 hair bands that grunge killed.

    It just got so silly and ridiculous that even my young dumb ass could not even enjoy it. Steel Panther seems more like a real band than most of them did at the time. Every single video I saw was exactly the same. The hair and outfits and expressions and the overly silly stage moves and posing annoyed the crap out of me.


    Every single video from that era seems to feature the singer copying exactly one or both of these expressions. Every. Damn. One. Which was great when it was Dave, but the imposters were all just boy bands.

    Nik Bowcott (so?), guitarist for Grim Reaper, was a guest columnist for a well known guitar magazine for a while. Can't remember if it was GW, GFTPM, etc., but I did read his stuff.

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra worked out a little bit better for them.
    WOW! I'm guessing that was before the theater renovation? It looks so ornate. Who was best...Armoured Saint?

    If my memory serves correct, I bought that album under the condition that if it sucked, my friend had to buy it from me. I had my money back later that same day. When I came across the video my reaction was similar...wtf!

    Floating band members seemed to be a popular theme for a little bit.

    Nick from Grim Reaper went onto be a big deal for Marshall amplification.
    He represented the company and was the guy you'd always see talking to the big
    Marshal endorsees.

    Not sure his exact role, but Nick was/still is everywhere, when they have these Marshall demos.
    He's not playing, but he's representing the product and giving the specs, etc.
