Back in the 80’s it was the decade of Me
or sometimes the decade of decadence
the music varied from Hard Rock to Dance to the beginning of Rap
I was what was termed a metal head
Seeing my first concert at the ripe old age of 13
Def Leppard and Uriah Heap, what mixture and treat
Finding out for the first time what they meant by contact high
spending my high school days listening to various bands
Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Scorpions, Ozzy, Judas Priest
Banging my head in my friends cars as we played our music a full decibel
Going to concerts a various as Whitesnake, Great White and seeing Floyd outdoors
Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, The Fabulous T-Birds kept me rocking the blues
Watching M-TV when it actually played videos
Saturday night was the Headbangers Ball night.
Then came the Glam rock time, with the big hair and makeup
bands like Poison, Cinderella, Twisted Sister, LA Guns
I could jam that stuff to
Then came Guns and Roses and the 80s began to wind down
What would be the next decades style of rock
Soon bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam came along
The Hair Bands died out and Grunge came into style
Then around 1995 it all died out and the big things were what they called the Boy Bands
The end of music as I knew it
Now I still play my 80’s and early 90’s rock, but a lower volume
My kids look at me like I’m crazy
But I can still bang my head, well not so much now that I had surgery.
Oh 80’s where have you gone.
in the past with my youth and my pain free days.
