An Ode to Hair Metal

A Love Affair with Hair Metal: Kitsch, Irony and Posterity by Audrea Lim is probably the most eloquent article I have ever read about one person’s reasons why they enjoy Hair Metal 20 years after the fact (let’s not split hairs now, we are talking mainstream spotlight). A good read. I feel the urge to get out my Scorpions “World Wide Live” tape. Yes, tape.
