History in Five Songs 02: American Heavy Metal
Play • 24 min

This is the show that aims to make grand and often oddball hard rock and heavy metal points through a narrative built upon the tiny idea of a quintet of songs. Buttressed with illustrative clips, Martin argues quickly and succinctly why these songs—and the specific sections of these tracks—support his mad professor premise, from the wobbly invention of an “American” heavy metal, to the influence of Led Zeppelin in hair metal or to more succinct topics like tapping and twin leads.

The songs serve as bricks, but Martin slathers plenty of mortar. At the end, hopefully he has sturdy house in which this week’s theory can reside unbothered by the elements.

In this episode Martin tells the history of American Heavy Metal in these Five Songs:

Doctor Please - Blue Cheer

Born to Be Wild - Steppenwwolf

Mississippi Queen - Mountain

Cities on Flame - Blue Oyster Cult

Rock the Nation - Montrose
