By David Konow

Bang Your Head is an epic history of every band and every performer to have worn the Heavy Metal badge. Charting the genesis of early metal with bands like Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden; the rise of metal to chart-topping phenomenon, featuring the likes of Def Leppard and Metallica; hitting its critical peak with bands like Guns N' Roses; disgrace during the ‘hair metal' '80s and a demise fuelled by the explosion of the Seattle grunge scene and the alternative revolution. Bang Your Head is as funny as it is informative, proving once and for all that there is more to metal than sin, sex and spandex.
