As a headbanger growing up in Oklahoma, “Headbanger’s Ball” was one of my primary sources of heavy metal news and music videos. Each year the show would do a Halloween episode with a guest host and lots of interviews. Although I did not upload this clip to Youtube, I do have this very show recorded on VHS and remember watching it that weekend. In the late 80s, you couldn’t have picked a better host for your Halloween show than Alice Cooper. This clip contains Alice’s introduction followed by two not-so-Halloween themed videos by Black Sabbath and Queensryche. Trick or treat!
