  • Bang Your Head


Whether headbanging is your guilty pleasure or you firmly believe that this much-maligned genre has never received the respect it deserves, BANG YOUR HEAD is a must-read that pays homage to a music that's impossible to ignore, especially when being blasted through a sixteen-inch woofer.

Charting the genesis of early metal with bands like BLACK SABBATH and IRON MAIDEN; the rise of metal to the top of the Billboard charts and heavy MTV rotation featuring the likes of DEF LEPPARD and METALLICA; hitting its critical peak with bands like GUNS 'N' ROSES; disgrace during the 'hair metal' 's; and a demise fueled by the explosion of the Seattle grunge scene and the 'alternative' revolution (YAY!), BANG YOUR HEAD is as funny as it is informative and proves once and for all that there is more to metal than sin, sex, and spandex.
