Book Review: Everyone Hates a Hero – Author Gregory L Hall

For a very, very short amount of time, back in the mid-1990’s, just after Headbanger’s Ball was cancelled, there was a show on MTV called SuperRock (bear with me here, this will make sense shortly). Rather than only playing heavy metal videos, SuperRock covered a wider variety. On a normal night, you might catch a Bad Religion video, then a ...
