Album cover for Never Say Die

For the past few weeks the BBC has shown Seven Ages of Rock, a great documentary on the history of rock. Tonight (finally!) was the episode on heavy metal, called Never Say Die. I’d been looking forward to it, but I must admit I was a bit disappointed. It showed things from a very limited and even British perspective. I understand they can’t show every single band out there, but why include Mötley Crüe and not mention one single band from Scandinavia? Shame.
