Death to All but Metal
Feel the Steel
For many people, the most important thing about September is back-to-school time.
It’s been quite a while since I dreaded back-to-school time. Ever since I was a teenager, in fact. (I actually enjoyed college, unlike grade school and high school, so I didn’t dread going back.)
When I was a teenager, I was listening to hair metal. And so were the guys from Steel Panther.
While most of the world gave up on hair metal after grunge landed, these guys instead decided to make more of the music they loved. Even though I tend to listen more to stuff like Arch Enemy, Slipknot (don’t start…), Meshuggah, and Iced Earth today, I still hold a soft spot for the music of my formative teenage years. In fact, I often downright miss it.
