"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".

ICON: "Right Between The Eyes" (1989)
Oh how the mighty have fallen on their a#¤"¤#. Their selftitled debut from the year of 1984 is a great WWIII inspired sleaze release and, 'Night Of The Crime' is nuthin' bout a masterpiece!!! This one features crap material (with the exception of all the songs from 'A More Perfect Union') and an even crappier vocalist since the old one became a born again christian (what a waste of such a great voice). They did a disasterous performance at the release party of the album (read: the singer did) and their record label decided to get rid of them a.s.a.p. Get the first two albums and simply forget about this one.
