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 ( to check out the full playlist just click here). You probably saw these back in the day on Miscellaneous Television or Much Music or Night Flight or Friday Night Videos, etc. etc.
**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 get things going with TESLA off 89's The Great Radio Controversy with "Hang Tough."
LOSTBOYS with "Cryin' Out" from the 1990 album Lost And Found.
MEGADETH from 1992 with "Foreclosure Of A Dream" off Countdown To Extinction.
SLAUGHTER with "Up All Night" from 1990's Stick It To Ya.
Late model FLOTSAM AND JETSAM from their self-titled 2016 album with "Life Is A Mess."
RATT from '85's Invasion Of Your Privacy with "You're In Love."
We've all been here. "Surrounded By Idiots" by WRATHCHILD AMERICA from their 1991 album 3-D.
And finally, something new from Johnny Gioeli and Deen Castronovo. The project it titled "Gioeli-Castronovo", it's out now, and this is the title track, "Set The World On Fire."
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/
