Transcript of the Show

[INTRO]

It’s a new year, a new era, and this show has the “Rock of All Ages.” Pay close attention to this intro–it’s German for fuck 2020!

—————————————-
Def Leppard – Rock of Ages
—————————————-

[Disclaimer: Profanity]

Wow! Hell, yeah! 2021, muthafers! 2020 is gone, buried, kicked to the curb like deadbeat couch-surfer that doesn’t give head.

I’m your hard talking, heavy drinking, hairball of a horny hedonist host, Pariah Burke.

Thank you for joining me for the very first Hard, Heavy & Hair of the new year. We’ve got a new intro to the show, lots of new stuff on the website you’re going to want to check out–PariahRocks.com–and big, big plans to get you even more Hard Rock, Metal, and Hair Bands from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 20-teens, and today, NOT just with the regular weekly 2-hour Hard, Heavy & Hair Show, but with all new spinoff shows, podcasts, and other great content every Rock N’ Roll fan is going to love.

Trust me, if you love Hard Rock, Metal, Glam, or Hair Metal, you’re going to want to follow me on social media for some major upcoming announcements throughout the next few weeks and months. Whatever social you’re on, you can find me @PariahRocks or just by searching for Hard, Heavy, and Hair or my name, Pariah Burke.”

Coming up on THIS show is… well, it’s a ton of killer stuff I want to tell you about. And I will, right after Steel Panther helps me say something I really need to scream out loud. Crank this one up and sing along, because I know you want to scream it, too.

—————————————-
Steel Panther – Fuck 2020
—————————————-

Ah. I feel much better having screamed along to the chorus of that song by Steel Panther.

Now, what’s coming up on the show: You’re going to hear plenty of hits and deep cuts from your favorite artists of the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and today, plus the Cover Song of the Week, and brand new tracks from Teramaze, Palace, FireProven, Sainted Sinners, Vandelay, and Viva la Wolfe.

I’m so excited by all the cool stuff I’m going to play for you, well, I confess, I’m “Sport’n a Woody.”

—————————————-
Dangerous Toys – Sport’n a Woody
Cinderella – Push, Push
—————————————-

Cinderella givin’ a little “Push, Push” after Dangerous Toys confesses they’re “Sport’n a Woody.”

Ready for your first Cover Song of the Week clue? Remember: the first clue is always the hardest. This one is for the musicians listening.

The Cover Song of the Week original is one many musicians learn from. It’s from a groundbreaking band, one of the originators of Hard Rock. The song features a bass riff the bassist said is, quote, “the hardest riff I ever wrote, the hardest to play.” The guitar player in the song passed his guitar through a Leslie speaker to create a swirling effect. And the legendary drummer used a triplet technique on his bass drum between the hi hat and kick drum in the song.

If you’re a Rock musicians, there are VERY strong odds you’ve tried to play something from this song. What song is it?

More, and easier, clues later.

New Teramaze, a rare hair request, and tempting fate with L.A. Guns next.

You’re listening to the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show. I’m you host Pariah Burke, and sometimes, I’m a “Touch Too Much.”

—————————————-
AC/DC – Touch Too Much
Teramaze – Break Me Shake me
—————————————-

The newest from Australian Christian Metal band Teramaze, that was “Break Me Shake Me.”

This next song is by request for Edward in Pennsylvania. Remember, you can always send me requests on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Viva email to requests@pariahrocks.com. Edward, here’s your request for “Blame It on the Brandy” by Smash Fashion.

—————————————-
Smash Fashion – Blame It on the Brandy
L.A. Guns – Malaria
—————————————-

LA Guns with “Malaria” off Cocked & Loaded. A sexy song about an epidemic disease. Maybe I should tempt fate like that. I don’t want to contract COVID–knock on my woody.

New Vandelay and Shark Island, and old favorite KISS, next.

Welcome back, let’s “Lick it Up” with Kiss.

—————————————-
KISS – Lick It Up
Vandelay – Make It Burn
—————————————-

From Sweden, that was independent band Vandelay. The band is self-funded on their own label.

This next song is the newest single from Shark Island. It’s the acoustic version of “Paris Calling.”

—————————————-
Shark Island – Paris Calling (Acoustic)
—————————————-

What did you think of the new acoustic recording of “Paris Calling”? Good, right? But I still prefer the 1989 original, here it is.

—————————————-
Shark Island – Paris Calling
—————————————-

There’s still WAY more new, old, rare, and raucous Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, and Hair Bands to come in the second hour of the show! Don’t go anywhere!

It’s the second hour of the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show, and I say “Turn it Up” with the Texas Hippie Coalition!

—————————————-
Texas Hippie Coalition – Turn It Up
Warlock – Metal Tango
—————————————-

Warlock and the “Metal Tango” from 1987.

Ready for another Cover Song of the Week clue?

The Cover Song of the Week is from 2007. It was a new track recorded for this Lawrence, Massachusetts Metal band’s greatest hits album celebrating their first ten years and four studio albums. The album included 15 other tracks, hits you might be familiar with, with titles like “Awake,” “Voodoo,” Shine Down,” and “I Stand Alone,” which was originally recorded for the soundtrack to the film the Scorpion King. What band is that? If you know, then you know who’s doing the Cover Song of the Week.

Think about that. Brand new Sainted Sinners is up after a little golden age Great White. This is “Lady Red Light.”

—————————————-
Great White – Lady Red Light
Sainted Sinners – Early Light of Day
—————————————-

If you recognize the pipes belting out those lyrics, they belong to David Reece who used to sing for Accept. That band is Sainted Sinners, and you just heard their newest single, “Early Light of Day.” You should check out the music video for the song. It’s got Max Schreck’s Nosferatu in it. Hit the show notes for Hard, Heavy & Hair 286 on PariahRocks.com. I’ve embedded the music video there for your viewing pleasure.

We’ll be right back.


Welcome back. This is Firehouse, “Home Is Where the Heart Is.”

—————————————-
FireHouse – Home Is Where the Heart Is
Roadwolf – All Hell Is Breaking Loose
—————————————-

Straight off the long-awaited debut album Unchain the Wolf, that was Austrian band Roadwolf with “All Hell is Breaking Loose.” I’ve heard their entire album, and it sure as hell is.

Let’s mellow out a little with some friends of mine from Canada. This is three-piece Tense Machine and “Bottom of the Bottle”.

—————————————-
Tense Machine – Bottom Of The Bottle
—————————————-

Your final Cover Song of the Week clue is next!


Before I hit you with your final Cover Song of the Week clue, let’s do a double-shot of early 80s Hair Metal starting with Motley Crue and a rare hair gem from Duke Jupiter.

—————————————-
Mötley Crüe – Too Young to Fall in Love
Duke Jupiter – Little Lady
—————————————-

“Little Lady,” there, a seriously rarefied rare Hair track from Duke Jupiter following the Crue’s “Too Young to Fall in Love.”

Ready for your final Cover Song of the Week clue?

I’m just going to tell you who wrote and performed the Cover Song of the Week original. It was Led Zeppelin. And the song in question was the very first song the world heard from Led Zep, back in the spring and summer of 1969. Jimmy Page didn’t like to release singles, so this song was the only single from the debut album of the band, and it was also Side A, Track 1. So, if you were old enough in 1969, whether you heard it on the radio or on vinyl or 8-track, the Cover Song of the Week was your first exposure to the legendary, world-changing Led Zeppelin band.

What song was that?

Think about it while we do some recent Dead Daises and a new track from Viva la Wolfe. This is “Holy Ground.”

—————————————-
The Dead Daisies – Holy Ground (Shake the Memory)
Viva la Wolfe – CNG HWY
—————————————-

New Viva la Wolfe there with “Change Highway”. It’s time to see if you guessed correctly: The Cover Song of the Week is next!

[COW]

Did you guess the Cover Song of the Week and the band doing the cover?

The covering artist is Godsmack, who recorded this cover for their 2007 greatest hits album.

I already told you the original artist is Led Zeppelin, but there might be some confusion about the clues.

One of the clues I gave you was that the Cover Song of the Week original was the first and only single from Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut album. Some people might argue with that. What about “Dazed and Confused”, huh? What about “Communication Breakdown” or “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”? Let me explain: Yes, all those songs get air play on Classic Rock stations, and were often spun on-air in the 70s, too. But that was because DJs loved those album tracks so much. There were never released as official singles. “Good Times, Bad Times” was the only song from Led Zeppelin one released as an actual single. So there you go. You can win a bar bet with that knowledge.

Here’s the Hard, Heavy & Hair Cover Song of the Week, “Good Times, Bad Times” done by Godsmack, and then the original immediately after by Led Zeppelin.

—————————————-
GodSmack – Good Times, Bad Times
Led Zeppelin – Good Times Bad Times
—————————————-

That was “”Good Times, Bad Times” , the Hard, Heavy & Hair Cover Song of the Week. That was the original version by Led Zeppelin following Godsmack’s cover.

From 1989, this is Babylon A.D. and “Caught Up in the Crossfire.”

Babylon A.D. – Caught Up in the Crossfire
