We need a "where are they now?" update.
I️ hated heavy metal, still do, but this short film is authentic and a great representation of American 80’s kids coming out of the 60’s & 70’s peace and love generation. In other areas of the country kids were more into new wave and punk but the metal heads were the most loyal fans and are probably still buying the same music today. Worth 16 mins of your time if you are part of this generation.
Great slice of 80's culture. I knew so many like these kids growing up in Indiana...
heavy metal sucks so does this film
