Sunday Metal – Songs of My Youth – W.A.S.P.

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.

W.A.S.P. brings back some interesting memories.

I remember some kid showing me the “Animal (F**ck Like A Beast)” album cover (the saw blade cod piece) in the locker room before or after gym class. Dangerous stuff! Can’t let the teachers see it.

I also remember some kid in my 8th grade algebra class having a W.A.S.P. t-shirt on. He sat in front of me, and he and the teacher were having an informal chat about the shirt. I don’t recall the whole of the conversation, but I do recall her pointing out it stood for “White Anglo-Saxon Protestant”, which was a new term to me at the time.

In the end tho, we all need our anthems, and “I Wanna Be Somebody” is one of those.
