    Headbangers and M.A.S.H.?
    Not a tasty dish.


    Of course, it would have helped to have a mobile hospital at those old heavy metal concerts…


    These guys were always ending up with neck and spine injuries from whipping that hair around and other forms of headbanging. (True!)

    No need to name drop, guys. Have faith in your caricatures!

    You can always tell a bad impressionist when he feels the need to tell the audience who he’s impersonating.

    e.g; “Hi! My name’s Mitt Romney and if things don’t change – they’ll stay as they are!”

    There’s a difference between having faith in your caricatures and having faith in your audience.
    I know that I would have only recognized the guy from KISS, and would have wondered what the joke was.

    I disagree. The name dropping is so obviously stilted and inappropriate that it makes the dialogue even funnier.

    Now that’s a “mash-up”

    …well that would be another way of looking at it…

    JMO, but I fall into the camp that believes it would have worked better without the name-dropping.

    I certainly would not have recognized the two on the left as Ozzie and Vince Neil, but I think it would have still been readily apparent they were “headbangers” based on the caption.

    FWIW, there was a recent Brevity with 3 un-named country music stars, and there was sort of a debate here about who they were. This might be a direct result of that discussion.

    I’m with ironhand but I appreciate the other view as well.
