Hammer Swings Down

Is "Hammer Swings Down" by Babylon A.D. the most underrated Glam tune of all time?

If you don't know the song, you're about to be in for a real treat. The song truly owns - and is basically everything that's great about Glam Metal.

Babylon A.D. for Rocklahoma 2009 I say!

A solid band but their potential was limited; Babylon AD was only going to be "so big." This song is similar to "Bang Goes the Bell." If you like Kix, you'll like Babylon AD, as they share elements, including very basic, repetitive but catchy guitar riffs.

I was CRAZY for this band when they came out! Great debut record. Kid Goes Wild and Bang Go the Bells, over and over and over. I wore out the damn cassette! Now, this is what I would call a DAMN good addition to Rocklahoma! BRING IT!

I loved Babylon A.D. back when they came out! "Kid Goes Wild" is totally kick-ass, and the ballad "Desparate" was one of my favorites of that time. But alas, not even Sam Kinison's voiceover on Kid Goes Wild could save them. Their first album got a bit lost in the glut of glam that came out in 1989, and by the time their second album was released, the scene was in its death throes.
