Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 71

“Let’s get back to the 80s with the next installment of the Monuments in Ruin Chronology Series. This episode features music from 1981 to 1983. When I reflect back to the 80s I often think of the lame elements that we had to endure but underneath all of that perfectly combed hair and dashing good looks is a dense batch of musical molding jams! Hang out with me as we re-experience them this week on Episode 71.”
Featuring: Metallica, Motley Crue, Gogos, Misfits, Naked Eyes, Herbie Hancock, Motorhead, Men at Work, Iron Maiden, Talking Heads, Modern English
