Since my car is currently in the shop getting a nip and a tuck, I have a rental car. And that rental car has a product of the modern world that I have nary encountered: Sirius satellite radio. Satellite radio has more “stations” that the entire AM/FM band combined, so it’s been fun exploring various stations on my travel time to and from work.
This morning I ventured 2 stations down from my current fave, Left of Center, and had my entire early teenage years slapped back in my face. “Seventeen” by Winger sent a simultaneous wave of embarrassment and nostalgia through my ears. Man, did I love me some hair metal back in the 80’s or what? I remember listening to Cinderella, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Europe and Stryper, just to name a few. Aren’t those great band names?
Some memorable names:
- E’Nuff Z’Enuff
- White Lion
- Twisted Sister
How many can you remember? Come on, admit your fandom (or ex-fandom). Or is there some darker secret hiding in your musical closet? Hmm?
Extra: I just couldn’t resist throwing this link in here. Money well spent, News Corp. Money well spent.
