I’m a pretty big fan of 80’s music, and for the most part I’m glad a lot of the hair bands I liked in my teenage years are still going strong. I always get nostalgic whenever I hear a tune by Bon Jovi, Motley Crue or Skid Row. Hell, I think I might be able to stomach Poison again, but only after a copius amount of beer.
But I looked at the National Post website this morning, and I thought it was the end of the world. Or at least hard rock. As it turns out, the Christian-fundamentalist glam band Stryper is releasing a new album. It’s called “Reborn,” a fittingly hackneyed title for one of the most banal acts the glam metal scene had ever spawned (which is saying a lot). Click here for the National post story.
