Blasts from the Past for the Soon-to-Be-Blasted Into the Past

My summer break is ending! As much as I want to deny it, the end cannot be escaped. I will have to work. But before that happens…

I want to offer three songs in future memory of my soon-to-be-dead summer break. And what better way to summarize and honor it than with a music genre that is likewise dearly departed, but whose ghost haunts the hallways of memory and can never ever be completely exorcised. In fact, the scorn for it that grunge and alternative rock brought about will fade into oblivion before the sweet, sweet nostalgia that is inherent to it.

Gone are the days of big hair and tight leather pants on straight men! But long live glam metal! Glam forever!

1. Winds of Change by Scorpions


2. Wasted Time by Skid Row


3. Paradise City by Guns ‘n’ Roses

Outright denial.”
