The Vault: Taking A Ride With The Hellacopters

    …..Excellent! I liked both of these.

  2. Hallux Valgus

    no “Everything Is On TV?”

    that’s my favorite Hellacopters song

    The Hellacopters sank to plodding arena rock here. The band had enough gas in the tank from Dregen’s departure to make Grande Rock a solid record, but the wheels came off on High Visibility. (This album does end with three furious songs, however.) On subsequent releases, the Hellacopters continue to sound bland.
