Hard Rock Music is Traveling “Back to the Future”

The year was 1985, and the world was a much simpler place.

In an attempt to escape from terrorists, Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) put the pedal to the metal of Doc Brown’s DeLorean / time machine and ended up thirty years back in time.  While McFly was fighting back his mother’s advances in an effort to ensure that his parents got together in the future, hard rock music was thriving in the real world.

Hard rock artists sang about sex, drugs and rock-n-roll because it was what they knew.  For better or worse, it was how they lived their lives both on and off the stage.

Excess was the norm for hard rock artists back in 1985, as evidenced by the flamboyant wardrobes, the heavily-teased hair, the over-the-top stage shows and the sheer multitude of groupies who wanted to get close to these rock gods, if only for a night.

They were living the dream.  All of the girls wanted to be with them, and all of the guys wanted to be like them.  But most importantly, their music provided a great escape from the pressures of the real world.
