I Cant believe I Used to Love That Band!

I was 14 and naive and I remember I am the die hard fan of all the heavy metal or thrash band. You named it from Metallica to KISS to Black Sabbath to Iron Maiden, ACDC, Van Halen and Halloween. My daily activity would be coming back from school, threw my school bag, got in the room and put on the heavy metal song on the radio, LOUDLY! I drove my mom crazy. I would jumped on the bed and did the head banging, rocking like nobody business. Now I cant even listened to a very loud music, give me headache! oh how age is catching up.....

ACDC is highly recognized Australian Heavy Metal Band and their song Highway to Hell is like ghostly or what we call in Malay "berantu!" After recording this song, the lead singer and co-song writer, Bon Scott died, after a night of heavy alcohol consumption. The group briefly considered disbanding, but soon new singer was selected to replace Scott. Later that year, the band released their highest selling album, Back In Black.
"I'm on a highway to hell

On the highway to hell

Highway to hell

I'm on the highway to hell"
-Highway to Hell - ACDC

Black Sabbath : Ozzy is one hell of a man! his drinking led him to be fired from the band.

KISS - Grunge man!
With their makeup and costumes, they took on the personae of comic book style characters: The Demon (Simmons), Starchild (Stanley), Spaceman (Frehley), and Catman (Criss). The band explains that the fans were the ones who ultimately chose their makeup designs. The "Demon" makeup reflected Simmons's cynicism and dark sense of humor, as well as his affection for comic books. Paul Stanley became the "Starchild" because of his tendency to be referred to as the "starry-eyed lover" and "hopeless romantic." Ace Frehley's "Spaceman" makeup was a reflection of his fondness for science fiction and supposedly being from another planet. Peter Criss's "Catman" makeup was in accordance with the belief that Criss had nine lives because of his rough childhood in Brooklyn. 

Metallica - some of their song still give me goosebumps until today, the like of the Unforgiven, Nothing Really Matters OOo

Van Halen - mass and mass of controversy surrounded them

Halloween is one of my favorite, I still can sing to Windmill till now.

me : before

me : now!
