The decline of western civilization collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Penelope Spheeris' Decline of Western Civilization was perceived as shocking and outrageous at the time of its original release in 1981. Parts II and III were no less extraordinary and unprecedented. Today, museums and educational institutions around the world present them as historically significant works of art. Featuring some of the most influential and innovative musicians and groups-- Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper, Lemmy, Poison and members of Aerosmith and KISS-- these riveting, unflinching, hard-core films adeptly captured the spirit of a major cultural phenomenon. Part I documents punk rock musicians' deliberate reaction to the mass commercialism of music. Part II takes a fast-paced look at the Heavy Metal scene of the late 80's. Part III profiles hard-core gutterpunks living homeless in Los Angeles and their music
Open up and say-- Ahh! by Poison (Musical group)( Recording )

28 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Open Up and Say ... Ahh! album for sale by Poison was released Aug 01, 2006 on the Capitol label. Poison's best album still has a bit of filler that fails to deliver the big hooks and catchy riffs of their best material; when that happens, Bret Michaels' affected "rawk & rowl" singing accent begins to grate. But thankfully, that doesn't happen very often on Open Up and Say ... Ahh!, which solidified the group's status as hair metal's top party band. Open Up and Say ... Ahh! CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs

Look what the cat dragged in by Poison (Musical group)( Recording )

26 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poison's debut album took its cues from the big, anthemic pop hooks of Def Leppard and the rebellious street-tough posturing of Motley Cr?e, as well as a raunchy, adolescent obsession with sex. But Poison really carved out its niche as the ultimate glam-metal band, using tight-assed boogie and over-the-top visual extravagance -- costumes, makeup, teased hair, etc. -- to an even greater extent than most of their contemporaries. It was derivative and formulaic, to be sure, but Poison wholeheartedly embraced that formula from the beginning with a conviction often missing in their peers, and it's that ridiculous, good-time excess that keeps Look What the Cat Dragged In's catchiest songs, especially the party anthems "Talk Dirty to Me" and "I Want Action," just as much fun today, if not moreso
