“Bang your head! steel Health’ll force you mad!”
— Quiet Riot
Like an episode of VH1’s at the back of the tune on steroids, Bang Your Head is an epic heritage of each band and each performer that has proudly worn the Heavy steel badge. even if headbanging is your to blame excitement otherwise you firmly think that this much-maligned style hasn't ever got the dignity it merits, Bang Your Head is a must-read that will pay homage to a tune that’s most unlikely to disregard, specifically while being blasted via a sixteen-inch woofer.
Charting the genesis of early steel with bands like Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden; the increase of steel to the head of the Billboard charts and heavy MTV rotation that includes the likes of Def Leppard and Metallica; hitting its serious height with bands like weapons N’ Roses; shame throughout the “hair steel” ’80s; and a death fueled through the explosion of the Seattle grunge scene and the “alternative” revolution, Bang Your Head is as humorous because it is informative and proves as soon as and for all that there's extra to steel than sin, intercourse, and spandex.
To write this exhaustive historical past, David Konow spent 3 years interviewing the bands, better halves, girlfriends, ex-wives, groupies, managers, list corporation pros, and an individual who used to be or is part of the steel scene, together with the various band men usually larger identified for his or her escapades and undesirable habit than for his or her musicianship. not anything is left unsaid during this jaw-dropping, humorous, and wonderful chronicle of strength ballads, outrageous clothes, giant hair, higher egos, and testosterone-drenched debauchery.
