"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".

WHITE LION: "Big Game" (1989)
Big pile of you-know-what. They bounched right back to class with "Mane Attraction" though and the previous one (Pride - 1987) is a classic hardrock album if ever!!! It's merely a shame they released this in between just as they were about to take control of the entire hardrock scene and become the next supergroup. Let's face it, this album is sadly the harsh reality and difference between being "legends" and just another hairmetal band of the eighties. Mike Tramp could have been the next David Lee Roth and Vito Bratta certainly had all the chops of Eddie Van Halen. You bastards!!! Why did you have to release such a fiasco???!!! Sob... I need to play me some "Pride"... what a classic little album... wait... lonely nights... sob.
