Stairway To Hell by Chuck Eddy

This irreverent and hilarious guide to all that's loud, vulgar, fast, violent, pissed-off, and adolescent in the music of the last forty years—the first book to prefigure the emerging "alternative" culture of the 1990s—has now been updated with the hundred best metal albums of the decade.

I'm assuming that since no one has reviewed this book, everyone else must have skimmed it in the store and realized that this book was ridiculous. Unfortunately, I merely bought it based on the cover. Big mistake, especially considering that Alice Cooper was on the cover. Here are some of the bands that Chuck Eddy considers to be metal or, at best, influential to metal: The Osmonds, Prince, Bryan Adams, Miles Davis, Run D.M.C., the Chocolate Watchband, and the Plastic Ono Band (where he glorifies Yoko and not John). While I don't mind the existence of a book based mainly on the distant (and, I mean, sometimes VERY distant) influences of heavy metal, this books' title and cover are extremely misleading. It should have been subtitled "The 500 Best Albums That Eventually Influenced Heavy Metal," considering many of the albums are from the seventies or earlier. Even the updated 100 Best Heavy Metal Albums of the 90's section completely misses the mark. I honestly don't know who this book is marketed towards.
