80s Power Mix: totally radical!

Am I right? Oh…and what a workout! That’s a mix to raise your heart rate! I got so excited just writing the copy, I probably burned 1000 calories.

You might note I ended this playlist with an INXS song. Yes, its true, I have done a 180 on my views of INXS, as I explain here, but that is not the only reason I ended the power mix with “Devil Inside.” Another facet of the 80s was the satanic panic. With that came an outcry against such bands like AC/DC (who literally sang a song about going to Hell). Because of this, and my religious upbringing, I really did not listen to AC/DC until about six or seven years ago….and yet they had a bigger influence on my life than I realized. So this week’s featured article is a grouping of memories about AC/DC songs, from Highway to Back in Black to Thunderstruck and more. Come back Friday, for a very personal featured article and a whole lot of hard rocking.
