Some were great. Some were embarrassing. But all left us wanting more, and drove us to the record stores to pick up the LPs, cassettes, or (for the rich kids) the CDs that the songs came from. They were music videos. And they ruled the world.
I've picked a few of the videos of songs from this past Saturday's METAL WORKS (you can check out the full playlist by clicking here). You probably saw these back in the day on Miscellaneous Television or Night Flight or Friday Night Videos.
**Some of the video quality on these aren't great, but I tried to find the best version of each for your trip down memory lane.**
Let's kick things off with Extreme's "Decadence Dance" off 1990's Pornograffitti.
Look for the brief Michael Wagener cameo in this video for the title track off Stryper's Soldiers Under Command. (assuming you can recognize him with this horrible picture - sorry, it was the best recording I could find)
Now we head up north for Canada's Harem Scarem with "No Justice" from the '93 album Mood Swings.
For the first music video they ever made, Slayer went big by heading to Cairo, Egypt to film the title track off Seasons In The Abyss.
It seems like this is turning into a travelogue. Filmed mainly in Mexico, partially among Mayan ruins, here's Cinderella's "Gypsy Road" from The Long Cold Winter album.
Megadeth with "99 Ways To Die."
Off their '87 album Pride, here's White Lion with "Tell Me."
Sacred Reich with the title track off 90's The Amercian Way.
W.A.S.P. finishes up our video re-cap with "Forever Free" off The Headless Children album.
Again, to check out the full playlist from this week's show, just click here. And be sure to tune in every Saturday night at 9pm cst for two hours(ish) of Classic Metal and Hard Rock. OUR music. OUR show. METAL WORKS.
Play hard. \m/
