Show Synopsis

"Through thunderous anthems and a kick-ass attitude, hard rock bands bring out the headbanger in each of us. Join host Carmen Electra for VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock, the definitive soundtrack to any air guitar performance. This five-part series spans music's high-volume era from its chord-crashing genesis in the '60s (Yardbirds, Rolling Stones, Hendrix), through its arena-rock ascendance (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith), the angry new wave (Sex Pistols, The Clash), the alternative movement (Nirvana, Metallica, Soundgarden), and beyond."

"The special features never-before-seen performance footage, rare photos, archival clips, and newly-recorded exclusive interviews with the artists themselves. Ritchie Blackmore, Chuck D., Alice Cooper, Billy Corgan, CC DeVille, Lita Ford, Peter Frampton, Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar, Rob Halford, James Hetfield, Kid Rock, Robby Krieger, Vince Neill, Rick Nielsen, Ted Nugent, Ozzy Osbourne, Liz Phair, Henry Rollins, Richie Sambora, Slash, Dee Snider, and Ann and Nancy Wilson are among the artists who talk about the effect and influence of hard rock's raging royalty."

No damn way Nirvana was a better band than Soundgarden, but this is not the place to bitch about that. Always good to see our favorite bishes getting a bit of recognition.

actually this is a bit old, i'm not a big fan of VH1 anymore, not metallica fan or nirvana but if your talking hard rock and grung i guess you have to put them in there, anyway, queen did good considering many people don't think their hard rock to begin with.

Queen were great. Nirvana are overrated. VH1 Classic still shows Queen videos. VH1 regular is now E2 a/k/a CelebReality TV. If I see Britney or Paris Hilton or Surreal Life again I will THROW UP!
