I’m about halfway through Fargo Rock City: A Heavy Metal Odyssey in Rural North Dakota by Chuck Klosterman, and I have to say, it is surprisingly good.
One highlight so far is the chapter analyzing early heavy metal music videos. The discussion made me nostalgic enough to go look up these videos on YouTube, which was REALLY entertaining, mostly because they are so utterly ridiculous. There was one exception that I had forgotten about though, and that was the video for One by Metallica.
Anyway, here is a collection of most of the music videos mentioned in the book, if you’re interested.No comments
