If hard rock has not been the same since 1990 for you, this is a perfect early holiday gift. Co-hosts Eddie Trunk (from That Metal Show and his syndicated radio show and podcast) and DJ Joey Scandalous will present this long night of five bands. Consider it a mini-Rocklahoma – but one that will be nice and warm inside. Mock hair metal all you want and criticize the lack of original members with certain bands, but this music survived grunge and nu metal. The bands might not have the kind of hair or the leather pants from the '80s, but this isn't some fashion show for hipsters to satirize. Houston's legendary King's X is the odd man out as they have always been more of a Beatlesque rock/metal hybrid. Yet you're not going to find people complaining about their inclusion.
