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.
Below I've posted the videos of some of the 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. (and there's a NEW one you may not be familiar with thrown in as well).
**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.**
LOUDNESS “This Lonely Heart”
Hurricane Eyes (87)
SKID ROW “Monkey Business”
Slave To The Grind (91)
MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP “Desert Song”
