I don't know when VH1 surpassed MTV as the "Cool" station but as of late they have been cranking out some really great specials. I Love the 70s, I Love the 80s, I Love the 80s Strikes Back and now this; 100 MOST METAL MOMENTS. This was a 5 hour special shown in 5 parts...we taped em all and watched em all in one fell swoop....which I believe is the best way to watch these things. Hosted by Twisted Sister singer/House Of Hair deejay Dee Snyder (excellent) with commentary by guests,some of which are listed as "Metal Experts" (How do they get this job title? I want mine!) this show will have you rockin down memory lane. You'll get to see all the old bands you loved so well in video clips,interview clips, and such. Just hearing the music bites and seeing some of the fashion and hair hit and misses is reason enough for catching this show. This special brings up folklore we all know about (the Plaster Casters making penis molds of celebrity rockers, The Def Leppard drummer losing an arm) and it also teaches us some new storys WE didn't know (the one that shocked us speechless was the story of MAYHEM whose career spawned suicide,cannibalism,murder and more. If you were a metal head in the 80s (and maybe still are one at heart!) this show is a good one to tape and watch with your friends.
