The Decline Part 2
Dude. Two words, Hair Metal. Filmed from 1987 to 1988 Part 2 covers exactly that. Alice Cooper, Ozzy, Poison, Queensryche, Megadeath, Motorhead, and countless other bands I’ve never heard of, all blathering away about what it’s like to be a rockstar.
While I found Part 1 to be a badass account of a fuckoff crazy underground world, Part 2 is much less so. The interviews are a fantastic display of mouth diarrheaed jerkoffs spewing brainless garbage into the camera. Not to say I didn’t enjoy the movie immensely, it’s a fantastic account of a bygone era in music which produced, not one, but two reality TV stars and an American Idol host. And if that’s not enough it also produced some of the best and laughably worst rock and roll ever recorded. Check it out for your much needed dose of Hair.
