W.A.S.P. Featured In Decibel Magazine Hall of Fame

1:29 AM

W.A.S.P.'s 1984 self-titled debut is the latest in induction in Decibelmagazine's vaunted "Hall of Fame" series.

The heavy metal touchstone - famous for classics "I Wanna Be Somebody" and "F*ck Like a Beast (Animal)" - was the main target of the PMRC 30 years ago.
"We found out the reason the PMRC went after us is because kids knew who we were," frontman Blackie Lawless said in the article. "That's how they work. They go after bands that have visibility. They make it their mission to bring bands down, but I don't think they were very successful. To this day, what they did was get more kids into music than had they not said a thing. "
The full seven-page story on the making of W.A.S.P., which includes interviews with every musician who performed on the record, in the September issue of Decibel magazine, which is on newsstands now and available worldwide here:
