I like giving “Sunday Metal” a theme, and so this theme is “Songs of My Youth”. I found heavy metal as a teenager and it’s always been a big part of my life. I wanted to highlight some songs that stand out from those youthful days.
Yeah, Nirvana isn’t pure heavy metal, but they certainly are loud rock. And if you know any music history, they were the pivot point that changed the music landscape in the early 1990’s. Heavy metal suffered because of these guys. 😉
But I still remember when their album showed up at the WXJM studios. We all piled into the second studio to listen to the song, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, and thought it was pretty cool. We had no idea how it would change things, but at least for that moment everyone at the station agreed on something. 🙂
