The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years (1988)
( October 11, 2012 )
Penelope Spheeris' portrayal of the late '80s Los Angeles metal scene, in which W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes pours a bottle of vodka down his gullet while floating in a swimming pool with his mom looking on. Real or not (rumor has it the bottle was filled with water), it¿s a chilling, comical, shocking moment that perfectly sums up hair-band excess.
