Blue Oyster Cult (1967-current) is classic rock band that has different meanings to different people. To people like HeadAssClown, their main contribution to the world was their heavy metal sci-fi songs, especially those on the 1981 album Fire of Unknown Origin. Four of the tracks were created specifically for the Heavy Metal (1981) film, namely Heavy Metal: the Black and Silver, Sole Survivor, Vengeance (The Pact), and Don't Turn Your Back. Oddly enough Veteran of the Psychic Wars was the album's only track that made it to the movie's final version and soundtrack, even though it was originally not intended for that purpose.

As HeadAssClown worships Heavy Metal '81 and the magazine, he has a deep affection for these songs. Don't Turn Your Back is based on the Harry Canyon sequence from the movie, and features some really tripped out vocals from Buck Dharma aka Donald Roeser. It is hard to convey the full greatness of this song until you have seen the movie and had your Heavy Metal conversion.

Heavy Metal: the Black and Silver and Veteran of the Psychic Wars are songs written at least partially by Eric Bloom, the motorcycle-riding, space-minded lead singer. Vengeance is a poetic yet harsh song about the Taarna sequence, the end scene of which makes HeadAssClown cry every time. Bloom also contributed Sole Survivor and After Dark to the album, two more classics.

The 2nd track Burnin' for You was the commercial success of Fire of Unknown Origin, and is still their most famous song except for Don't Fear The Reaper from the 1976 Agents of Fortune album. Even people who aren't fans know that song because of the SNL skit about "More Cowbell", which mixed up Buck Dharma and Eric Bloom, but has in fact become one of the show's most famous skits ever (If they finally cancel SNL like all of humanity now wants, it will stay that way).

However, don't let HeadAssClown's Heavy Metal obsession distract you from their other music. The three early albums, Blue Oyster Cult (1972), Tyranny and Mutation (1973), and Secret Treaties (1974) are all worthwhile, and many consider Agents of Fortune to be their best. The other releases have mixed reviews, including such flamboyant titles as Cultosaurus Erectus (1980), Club Ninja (1985), and Imaginos (1988). Some people consider these later albums to be masterpieces and others just ignore them.

HeadAssClown enjoys nearly all of their music, and he likes them so much that he went to see them at a motorcyle rally. He doesn't even have a bike, but he just went for the music! It had been 76 degrees Farenheit on Thursday, but at the Saturday night concert it was a freezing 24 degrees. Eric Bloom joked, "Go ahead and hug the guy next to you...he probably just got out of jail last week." Most of the bikers were by their fires in the campground so it was basically free front row seats.

Blue Oyster Cult is a band that prides itself on live performances, and they are still touring so try to find a time to go see them while it lasts. Bloom and Dharma, the two leading members are still going strong. Dharma is considered to be one of the better guitarists ever so it is great to hear live. He is a real guitar hero unlike all of the wannabes "playing" Burnin' For You on their video game consoles in their pajamas.

Blue Oyster Cult was originally intended to be an American version of Black Sabbath, but to HeadAssClown they became so much more with their rare contribution of many top quality sci-fi songs to the genre. On top of that, it's just some damn good Heavy Metal music.

HeadAssClown is the mastermind behind the Brood Of Clowns circus. He created BOC as an alternative for people who aren't douche bags and dislike the typical stupid trash culture. In his free time, he enjoys reading, long walks on the beach, and asian pornography. He has had sex with over 300 women and at least 50 snakes.
