#atozchallenge theme reveal!


Drumroll, please!

Actually, in my posts for this year's April A to Z Blogging Challenge will be a lot of drums.....and shredding guitars.....and hair.  A whole lotta hair!   

As in hair bands!  

I've chosen to showcase my favorite 80s & 90s hair band music. 

I was fortunate enough to grow up in the era of MTV - back when it was a new concept and actually played, you know, MUSIC, 24/7.  I was a sterotypical kid, who would rush home from school to turn on the TV and lose myself in music videos all afternoon. 

And as my husband can attest - I sang along to each and every one of these as I posted.  Funny how you can remember all the words to a song from 25 years ago, but forget what you just went into the kitchen for....

So expect a TON of Def Leppard, who has been my favorite band since my freshman year in high school; Cinderella, Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses, Van Halen.  
All the good stuff!  


Come along for the ride!
The train is leaving the station April 1.

    1. I don't think I've heard of Status Quo...I'll have to go check them out! They may be one of those bands where I know their music, just not who did it.

  11. Oh gosh, I was a HUGE hair band fanatic back in the day. Can't wait! I hope Poison and Winger will be in there. ;)

  12. Great theme! I don't know much about the hair bands (you'd think I would, with all the music I do on the blog) other than they have lots of hair and play with their cheeks sucked in. Looking forward to hearing from you....
