Decline of Western Civilization Part 2

Penelope Spheeris' 1988 sequel: THE METAL YEARS.

In the mid ’80s, a new scene took over the Los Angeles nightlife - Heavy Metal - and it was loud, rude, sexy, sexist, and anti-authoritarian. THE METAL YEARS takes an in-depth look at rabid fans, desperate groupies, and wannabe rock stars. The film also portrays the harsh reality of the music business, where everyone’s dream to become a star can’t possibly come true. Featuring interviews with Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Kiss, Lemmy, and Ozzy Osbourne, and performances by Faster Pussycat, Lizzy Borden, London, Odin, and Megadeth.
