A Headbanging Halloween Throwback

October 28, 2019



Back before YouTube, back before the internet, hell back before I was a thought in either of my parents' respective minds - there was a show called MTV’s Head Bangers Ball. Think of it as your favorite Alternative playlist on Spotify. From what I’m told you would have to stay up late to catch the show as most of the alternative music played didn’t suit the fancy of day time viewers.

Thanks to me having too much time on my hands and being a student of history, I uncovered a nice treasure trove from years gone by - a contemporary treasure trove at that.

Peep this classic Halloween special featuring the likes of Alice Cooper, Dave Mustaine and Iggy Pop from 1989! It’s near perfect balance of alt, horror and nostalgia is the perfect recipe to get you in the mood for Thursday.
