So I missed out on the initial Heavy Metal Listening Month that was going around, so I’m using this opportunity to jump in on the second.
Day 1) Glory years: Any song from the ’80s.
Go ahead, blast me for going with glam. However, I challenge you to sum up another genre of metal as utterly dominant during the 1980s. I will agree with you 100% that the classic bands made their best albums in this period (and I’m sure a few will make later appearances), but when the subject is “Glory Years,” we’ve got to go with my favorite song from the Crüe. Dr. Feelgood may not be my favorite Mötley Crüe album, but Kickstart My Heart is awesome in every sense of the word.
