  2. W.A.S.P.



    W.A.S.P. is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 by Blackie Lawless, who is the last remaining original member of the band. They emerged from the same Los Angeles scene that spawned Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, Dokken, Ratt, Quiet Riot, Guns N' Roses and others. The band's popularity peaked in the 1980s, yet they continue to record and tour, making them one of the most enduring of the West Coast heavy metal bands. W.A.S.P. gained notoriety for their shock rock themed image, lyrics and live performances. They have sold over 12 million copies of their albums.

  7. Doug Blair

    Doug Blair


    Doug Blair, born February 11, 1963 as Douglas Blair Lucek, is a heavy metal guitarist and member of W.A.S.P.. Doug's early development as a musician took place in his home state of Connecticut (USA). His focus on technical ability with the guitar quickly saw him gaining a reputation locally with his early band, Run 21. This band played small club dates in the Tri-State area (NY,NJ,CT) and recorded some original material during that time. One of the songs, "Baby It's Your Face" was recorded at Presence Studios in Weston, Connecticut and released on the Metalstorm compilation produced by Jamie Bircumshaw and Tom Boyd in 1985. This early Doug Blair band, Run 21 also included Stet Howland on drums who would later join W.A.S.P. ( as would Blair). Run 21 was especially known for its outlandish show (compared to other Connecticut acts) that would see Blair jumping up on the bar and playing while running in between glasses and bottles. The act had an element of comedy with drummer Stet Howland's dialogue with the audience. This early "over the top" style of performance were precursors to what Blair and Howland would be doing with the internationally known W.A.S.P.

The album contains covers of Deep Purple's Burn (originally recorded for W.A.S.P's previous album Dominator, but not used for unknown reasons) and Chuck Berry's Promised Land. Promised Land was also covered in 1973 by Elvis Presley, and it was Elvis' version that the band had in mind as demonstrated by the ending comment "How about one of them peanut butter & banana sandwiches."

  15. The Crimson Idol

    The Crimson Idol (1992)


    The Crimson Idol is the fifth studio album by heavy metal band W.A.S.P., released internationally in 1992 through Capitol Records and on May 24, 1993 in the United States; a remastered edition was reissued in 1998, containing a bonus disc of B-sides and live material from 1992. The album charted within the top 40 in five countries. It is a concept album, telling the story of the rise and fall of a fictional rock star named Jonathan Steel.

  16. Helldorado

    Helldorado (1999)


    Helldorado is the 1999 album by the American heavy metal band W.A.S.P.. The album did not receive great reviews and many of W.A.S.P.'s fans did not like vocalist Blackie Lawless's new 'screaming' approach. The songs live up to the traditional controversial W.A.S.P. style with titles such as "Dirty Balls" and "Don't Cry (Just Suck)". The seventh track, "Cocaine Cowboys", is a pro-cocaine anthem with the lyric "Cocaine cowboys never die!".

  17. Still Not Black Enough

    Still Not Black Enough (2008)


    Still Not Black Enough is the sixth studio album by W.A.S.P. (seventh album overall), first released in June 1995 in Japan only. It was not released in the U.S. until August 1996 through Castle Records. Still Not Black Enough was originally slated for release as a Blackie Lawless solo album but due to the heavy content, Blackie changed his mind and decided to release it as a W.A.S.P. album, which had also been the case for The Crimson Idol. Ironically as well, Still Not Black Enough is a sort of spiritual successor to The Crimson Idol, bearing a strong resemblance with it as far as sound and lyrical themes are concerned. However, instead of telling the story of the fictional character Jonathan, this album is mostly a collection of songs about Blackie Lawless himself. It goes into issues involving the death of his mother and the agony and madness he went through just after The Crimson Idol World Tour.

  18. Kill Fuck Die

    Kill Fuck Die (1997)


    Kill.Fuck.Die. was the seventh studio album by American heavy metal band W.A.S.P., released by Castle Records in 1997.

  19. Dominator

    Dominator (2007)


    Dominator is the thirteenth studio album by the American heavy metal band W.A.S.P., it was released in 2007. The U.S. release was originally planned but the label deal fell through. Covers of Burn by Deep Purple and Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival were included on the originally announced track listing, but were dropped from the album's final cut. Dominator is based on the current American foreign policies.

  20. The Headless Children

    The Headless Children (1988)


    The Headless Children is the fourth studio by heavy metal band W.A.S.P., released in April 1989 through Capitol Records.

  21. Live In The Raw

    Live In The Raw (1987)


    Live...In The Raw is the first live album by W.A.S.P. (fourth album overall), released in 1987. This album can be seen as something of a breakwater between the 'old' W.A.S.P. of the first three albums and the more mature sound of the releases that would follow. It is also hailed by many as their "best album", it is also the album to feature "Harder Faster", which is about the PMRC declaring them as "sexual perverts".

  22. Inside The Electric Circus

    Inside The Electric Circus (1986)


    Inside the Electric Circus is the third studio album by heavy metal band W.A.S.P., released in October 1986 through Capitol Records; a remastered edition featuring two bonus tracks was reissued in 1997 through Snapper Music. The album is the band's first to feature singer and bandleader Blackie Lawless playing guitar, having switched from bass to rhythm guitar. It reached No. 17 and 35 on the Norwegian and Swedish albums chart respectively, and No. 60 on the U.S. Billboard 200; it remained on the latter for 19 weeks.

  25. Animal

    Animal (1984)


    "Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)" is a song by heavy metal band W.A.S.P., originally intended for their debut self-titled album, but was dropped before the album's release, although it appears as a bonus track on the 1998 reissue. Written by Blackie Lawless, the song was released as the band's first single. Due to his religious beliefs, Blackie Lawless will no longer perform this song live.
