We’re back this week to celebrate the second half of 1985 as we dissect July through December. There was a ton of music released in the second half of 1985 and Chris and Aaron are back to bring you some of the best tracks from the year. Without further ado, here are the stories, the people, and the sounds that made 1985 an interesting year for Decibel Geeks:
Aerosmith – Let the Music Do the Talking (Done with Mirrors)
Twisted Sister – Kill or Be Killed (Come Out and Play)
Dokken – The Hunter (Under Lock and Key)
King Kobra – Shadow Rider (Ready to Strike)
WASP – The Last Command (The Last Command)
December 23 – Two young fans of Judas Priest in Sparks, Nevada shoot themselves, one fatally, after listening to the band’s records. A lawsuit is brought against the group in 1986 claiming that they were compelled by backwards subliminal messages hidden in their music.
