Horror B-Sides – October 2nd, 2013
Dokken – Dream Warriors
Hell yeah! 8 films [fuck the remake] have shown people trying to battle Freddy, and while he relents for a minute, he’s never truly defeated. But Dokken? Pssh, they kick his ass with METAL! Like, oh sure, Dream Demon, you may have a bad-ass glove equipped with knives, but take this! *HOT RIFF* POW! Oh, you’ve got supernatural powers?! Try this on! *METAL FALSETTO VOCALS* BAM! You think you’re immortal?! Have a taste of *METAL POWER FIST WHEN YOU’RE SINGING THE CHORUS* KAPLOOIE! It’s fucking awesome.
The video for Dream Warriors was the first music video to be included on a VHS. The song helped to make Dokken one of the biggest metal bands in America, as well as Dream Warriors one of the biggest horror films of the year. You’ll never have a double combo of awesome horror film & metal tune this day and age. People couldn’t handle it, and I imagine the combo would cause many people to lactate to death.
