Metal Trivia Podcast #19

I don’t know how I mix up YOB with Praying Mantis, or even if anyone cares, because metal is metal and we need to listen to plenty more of it. Please note that Warren DeMartini is an excellent guitarist, and my friend from back in highschool used to joke that his dad was in RATT. Today that same friend plays bass in Modest Mouse. Weird, right?

2417: “Bad Guys”

2417: “Bad Guys” was what band’s first music video on MTV?
The song also appeared in the 1986 movie of the same name.

A. The answer to this is Precious Metal, the California band that rode the thin line between punk, pop, and a splash of metal. I mean, they had metal in their band name afterall, and Rolling Stone included them on their '50 Greatest Hair Metal Albums of All Time,' ahead of Mr. Big's ' Lean Into It,' so they did something right.

"We were originally approached by Polygram (Records) to use 'Cheesecake' in the movie 'Bad Guys,'" said vocalist Leslie Knauer in an undated interview with Metal Maidens, "I had a half-finished song from the Promises days, called 'Bad Guys,' so we kind of faked we had a master of it and would bring it in the next day. We raced over to our rehearsal studio, wrote it, learned it, recorded it from 7pm until 9am, took a shower, then Mara and I stumbled into Polygram at 11am with this finished master."

After four studio albums, the band called it quits in 1992.

This started on a whim. I gained entry to the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, PA through a sponsorship bib with Students Run Philly Style. In exchange for a bib for the race, I just had to raise $500. GULP.

Through the amazing support of good people we hit $500… with a full month to go. In heavy metal we learn to never take our foot off the gas, right?! We can’t stop now!
