"WORST OF HAIRMETAL 1980-1992"
"WORST OF HAIRMETAL 1980-1992" - Worst of? Well... there's no point adding the really "obscure" hairmetal releases. They were (more or less) rubbish in the first place anyhow, thus why the CD's are scarce and people are paying stoopid $$$ for them at eBay. Nope, you won't find the likes of Boycott, Brinx, CCCP, Radioactive Cats, Rock Candy, Steffaine, Tarzen, etc, etc. I'd literally have to add 100's and 100's of them. This is merely crap albums by so-called "semi-famous" and/or the "MTV famous" hairmetal artists of the golden era of 1980 to 1992. This is a work-in-progress project as I'm sure I forgot about plenty of stuff. ATTENTION!: Please keep in mind that I really do like/enjoy/luv many of these acts other releases, or/and many many other acts from this era of hardrock, it's NOT meant to be a slag at the entire genre of "hairmetal".

ALICE COOPER: "Zipper Catches Skin" (1982)
Why do you think they call it dope? Welcome to YOUR nightmare as alice catches skin??? You know, it's not always a bad thing to have an overly aggressive A&R person at your record label. Any sane reprensenative should/would have told Alice to flush this down the loo and don't return until you've managed to write some decent tunes. The Coop moved further and further away from his original idea and concept (probably due to his severe alchol addiction) and Thank God, the song "He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask), theme song of the horror film "Friday The 13th, Part VI, finally brought him back to life and limelight. The "real" comeback had to wait until 1989 though and the classic album "Trash" (and, yes, you can leave this in the trash).
