Transcript of the Show[INTRO]
Welcome to the show! Crank it up, and “Cum on Feel the Noize!”
Quiet Riot – Cum on Feel the Noize
Welcome to show number 250! Man, 250 shows. Times 2-hours per show… let me do the math here… carry the one… take another shot of bourbon… divide by pi… That’s… like, 500 hours of Hard Rock, Metal, and Hair Bands from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 20-teens, and today. Wow!
That’s a LOT of music I’ve played overed the years.
I wanted to make a big deal of show 250. I was going to fill the studio with strippers again, and have them help me introduce songs and special segments. We were going to have an open bar with a professional mixologist. But, a radio show, no matter how awesome it is, is not an essential service.
So instead, we’re going to celebrate the Hard, Heavy & Hair 250th show by cramming in 25 of my favorite–and your favorite–Hard Rock, Metal, and Glam hits, deep cuts, and rarities from the last 50 years. It’s 25 from 50. And I’m going to use every minute I possibly can for playing great music for you. We won’t even do a Cover Song of the Week this week.
Are you ready to rock? Are. You. Ready. To. Rock?! I don’t care if you’re a Boomer, a Gen-Xer, a Millennial, or a Gen-Z, if you’re ready rock, then you’re my generation!
Gorky Park – My Generation
Lita Ford – Hungry
Lita Ford with a deep cut from Stilleto, that was “Hungry” hot on the heals of the first Russian Metal export following the fall of the Berlin Wall, Gorky Park, and their cover of the Who’s “My Generation.’
Jumping forward to one of the best of 2018, this is Pop Evil and “Waking Lions.”
Pop Evil – Waking Lions
Hell, yeah! As tough as the COVID-19 situation is, it’s waking the lions in me. I can do this. We can all do this. We’re going to get through this together. I’ll be right back with AC/DC, Kiss, and 1994 Motley Crue.
My name is Pariah Burke, and I’m your hard talking, heavy drinking, hairball of a horny hedonist host, and I’m shooting to thrill with AC/DC.
AC/DC – Shoot to Thrill
Mötley Crüe- Hooligan’s Holiday
From the one-and-done 1994 lineup of Motley Crue with John Corabi on vocals and rhythm guitar, that was “Hooligan’s Holiday.”
Poor yourself a fresh one, sit back, and remember loves lost with this next song.
Poison – Every Rose Has Its Thorn
KISS – Deuce
One of the most famous deep cuts in Metal there. “Deuce” is from Kiss’s 1974 debut album, but it’s not one of the album’s three singles. But, that album is from before the corporatization of radio, from a time when DJs like me weren’t the unicorns we are today. Back in the 70s and through the mid-80s, many Rock radio DJs did what I still do now–play on the air any track off an album they feel like playing. That’s how “Deuce” got to be so popular, which lead to it becoming a staple of Kiss’s live act even many albums later.
More deep cuts and more hits coming up from Warrant, Godsmack, Extreme, and plenty more.
Godsmack – Under Your Scars
A modern love song I think all of us damaged, modern humans can relate to: “Under Your Scars” from Godsmack.
Let’s lighten it back up with a 1984 Metal anthem from a New Jersey band you might have heard of. This is “We’re Not Gonna Take It” from Twisted Sister.
Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It
Black Sabbath – Paranoid
Rough Cutt – Cutt Your Heart Out
“Cutt Your Heart Out” from Rough Cutt, who is working on new music as we speak with a lineup of Chris “The Count” Hager, Rockin’ Dave Alford, Darren Householder from Love/Hate, Jeff Buehner of the Loyal Order, and frontman Steven St. James. Before Rough Cutt was “Paranoid” from the original Black Sabbath lineup.
Next, I’ll tell you all about the cute chick sitting on me this very minute.
I mentioned earlier how I wanted to celebrate this 250th show with a bunch of people in the studio, a couple stripper poles, and just a big party. With social distancing, I can’t have that, but I can have one cute chick in the studio with me.
Can you say hi, Moz?
He’s shy, friends.
Right now–and since long before I started this show–I’ve had a cockatiel on my shoulder. His name is Mozart–Moz for short. He belongs to a good friend of mine who was kind enough to let me birdsit her boy. And this, I’m told, is one of the 8-year-old cockatiel’s favorite songs. It’s Guns N Roses, “You Could Be Mine.”
Guns N’ Roses – You Could Be Mine
“You Could Be Mine” for my in-studio guest, the literal bird on my shoulder, Mozart. He DID sing along to that song, but he also seemed to know every time I opened the mic because he went silent again. Stage fright in a cockatiel. It happens to the best of us.
Don’t you get afraid. This is the most requested Warrant song by Hard, Heavy & Hair Show listeners. It’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”
Warrant – Uncle Tom’s Cabin
This is Hard, Heavy & Hair show number 250, and I’m playing 25 of my favorites and yours from the last 50 years of Hard Rock, Metal, and Glam.
I introduce myself at the top of the show as ‘your horny, hedonistic host.’ Most of the more than a quarter of a million people listening right now may not know how to take that. The few hundred of you that listen and actually know me, have seen me backstage at a concert, or hanging at the Rainbow Room, or have… interacted with me at more… uh… let’s just say, at clubs that cater to specific appetites, know the truth in my introduction. So is it any wonder then, that songs like the next two tend to wind up on my favorites lists?
Halestorm – Apocalyptic
Hinder – Lips of an Angel
“Lips of Angel” by Hinder, making backsliding sexy following a little 50 shades of Lzzy Hale in “Apocalyptic.”
If you’re getting hot, I’ll keep sticking my tongue in your ear after this quick break for station identification.
I’m Pariah Burke, and this is the Hard, Heavy & Hair 250th show.
From St. Petersburg, Florida, this is Roxx Gang and “Red Rose.”
Roxx Gang – Red Rose
Tesla – Modern Day Cowboy
Some of references in Tesla’s “Modern Day Cowboy” are dated and only work if you remember the 80s and the Cold War, but the spirit of the lyrics is still relevant today–perhaps more so than ever.
I’m Pariah Burke, and I’m rocking out with my cocky out. Actually, it’s a friend’s cocktail that I’m birdsitting. But that’s no reason you can’t get rocked with Def Leppard.
Def Leppard – Let’s Get Rocked
Skid Row – Here I Am
Deep cut “Here I Am” off Skid Row’s debut LP.
3 Doors Down has a way of connecting emotionally with their audiences. If you’re a man, you understand the fears referenced in this next song. If you’re a woman, listen closely; it will might help you understand the men in your life a little better. This is “Kryptonite.”
3 Doors Down – Kryptonite
Great White – Lady Red Light
Great White, “Lady Red Light.” I’ve always loved Mark Kendall’s guitar work on that song–the whole album, but especially that song and its intro. “Lady Red Light” is the song that hooked me onto Great White; that, album and tour, Once Bitten, is what made me a life-long Great White fan.
Still coming up is Judas Priest, Sons of Apollo, and BulletBoys.
You’re listing to the 250th weekly Hard, Heavy & Hair Show, and this is Judas Priest, “Turbo Lover.”
Judas Priest – Turbo Lover
Sons Of Apollo – Goodbye Divinity
I love that song. Supergroup Sons of Apollo and “Goodbye Divinity” from their album 2020–MMXX in Roman numerals.
