Trick or Treat (1986) Beset by bullies, an unhappy headbanger gets help from his dead rock idol. Basically it's Carrie for morose metalheads. TIL: The sign of the horns hand gesture is actually not satanic, just superstitious. It's the Malocchio, meant to ward off the evil eye.
Still Voices - This Is Spinal Tap (1984) "For 15 minutes I got to be a rock star, the 15 minutes is great! It turns into Spinal Tap after 20 minutes." - Mark Mothersbaugh
Dad Rock Daily: T. Rex - Electric Warrior (1971) Trippy, not so hard rock from the Grand Poobahs of Glam. Lots more to listen to here than just Bang a Gong. Laudable Lyrics: O God, high in your fields above earth, come and be real for us.
And finally, I’m going to be spending the evening ruining what’s left of my hearing with my son and Metallica (those tickets were no doubt his favorite Christmas gift). While some bands purposely lean into Heavy Metal’s satanic reputation, Metallica has always been somewhere in the middle. With ex-Christian Scientist and vaguely deist lead singer James Hetfield writing most of the lyrics, the band delivers some songs with positive messages and some others that definitely lean in the other direction. Either way, as Jon Sorensen notes at Catholic Answers, they probably shouldn’t be your go-to source for Church history. They sure can rock, though.
