THE BANG GANG – As with any Metal genre, the Hair Metal scene had many a talented band that were never signed to a major label and become a household name. The Bang Gang from the USA is one such band and their 1990 studio album, Love Sells (Sinclair Records), is a genuine need for any Hair or Sleaze Metal aficionado!

This first album from The Bang Gang is now realistically rare. Very rare! How rare? Try the $50.00 to $69.00 (U.S.) range for both new and used CD’s of Love Sells, currently listed on Amazon.com! That’s rare.

The opening track on Love Sells, Pedal To The Metal, is, in my opinion, the greatest (if not) one of the greatest Hair Metal songs of all-time! Listen to Pedal To The Metal for yourself below and decide for yourself… cause…

  1. So, I gotta show you where the singer got his name….yes, it’s Rock History 101 again Stone! \m/ 🙂

    From Be-Bop Deluxe’s first album. I was also produced briefly by the guy who produced this album from ’74.

    • LOL!! It’s “always time for Rock History 101” when you check in, Kev!! This is a pretty darn cool song too!! Gotta eventually get this stuff in my collection 🙂

      Keep Rockin’ and Rollin’, Kev! Whoa. \m/\m/

      • Stone, Be-Bop’s Bill Nelson is an amazing guitarist! There’s some good stuff on here, the title track Axe Victim is great! -and for a great guitar-led 3 minute single, check out ‘Maid in Heaven’ from their ‘Futurama’ album! In this era, Bill was like Bowie AND Mick Ronson all rolled into one!
