Monday Metal Madness – Happy Birthday Vulgar Display of Power
Posted by RiffRaff
You could argue all day whether grunge is or is not metal, but it’s hard to say that it didn’t have a huge impact on the modern metal scene. Last weeks poll found its self with a tie between Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains. So congrats to those two pioneering bands!
This week marks the 20th anniversery of one of the most loved metal albums of all time, Vulgar Display of Power by the one and only Pantera. With VDP, the Texas boys reached ‘a new level’ metal superstardom going 2x platinum and garnering vast amounts of praise from countless fans and music journalists. I’m pretty sure that just about everyone who reads this blog is well aware of this album and most likely listened to it countless amounts of times, so this weeks poll will be a 2 parter with a bit of homework attached. First up, which was you favorite music video off of VDP and, second, what was you favorite song off the album. Your homework, go dust off your copy of VDP (where applicable) and rock the f’ out to one of the greatest metal albums of all time. Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
