Please share the music video which was possibly cool back then, now seems silly. Doesn't matter if it's metal or not.

Such as Separate Ways by Journey.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to make a mockery of them. I love Journey, the song and the MV, respect them.

But every time I watch the MV, I can't just ignore that Steve Perry secured his safety when he was stepping backward.(2:19)

He also had s trouble balancing himself on one leg.(1:50)

Well, I know he couldn't help it. Because balancing on one leg is way too cool to give up back then.

This MV is like a treasure trove, has so many valuable moments.

Do you know any other stuff to share?

That Journey thing is one of the funniest videos I've seen. I seem to recall it being number one on a VH1 or MTV list of the worst music videos ever when I was a kid. 

This one here is way worse, though, in every possible way...


I didn't know MTV listed it as a #1 worst MV ever. Interesting.

I know the video you posted. I agree. It's a nothing but disaster. Actually I considered it too. It was hard to choose between these two.

The ridiculous text roll, filming techniques, has no context overall.

And plus, I hate this song. I love Queensryche so much, this song is a mess. The dissonance occurs so many times. Really hard to keep listening.

Not sure if this was also cool back then, but every time it's quite funny to watch.

What the hell is this?! Oh... no... The pose at 2:40. Just great.

Looks That Kill is silly enough by the way. It fits the topic I guess.

Okay. Here's another stuff.

Breaking the Chains by Dokken. Another treasure box.

Avoiding the lamp, jumping, the unattractive girl, shaved legs,

Mick Brown was at a loss what to do 'cause he couldn't have his drum kit.

And many other moments.

You don't know what it's like.

Dave Holland's like "Let's just have done with it." (On the car, near the end)


This video is soooo bad lol.Great song,lousy video.Then again pretty much anything from the early '80's can be included in this list.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.

      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
