Your host Dave teams up with Dragon Con luminary Kristian Allen and Noel Wood from The Finest to look back at the formative years of Hasbro’s GI Joe: A Real American Hero toy line!

Needless Things Podcast 283 – Heavy Metal Needless Commentary

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-pnrzk-c027f9

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

Special guests Dan Kelly and Evil Jim join the Commentary Team for the legendary 1981 animated feature Heavy Metal!
A truly magnificent feat of genre storytelling, Heavy Metal features the talents of John Candy, Joe Flaherty, Rodger Bumpass, Eugene Levy, Harold Ramis, Marilyn Lightstone, and dozens more providing voices for some of the most striking and innovative animation of the era. A phenomenal team of artists brought life to stories from Dan O’Bannon, Richard Corben, Bernie Wrightson and more; all set to a driving soundtrack that deserves its own paragraph:
As if the animation and voice acting weren’t accomplishment enough, the filmmakers compiled an amazing selection of pure rock to accompany the visuals – Sammy Hagar, Devo, Blue Öyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Black Sabbath, and Grand Funk Railroad are just a few of the bands that contributed to the aural power of the film, while the incredible Elmer Bernstein provided the score!
Listen in as Jim, Dan, and the entire team sell their souls for rock n’ roll in this month’s Needless Commentary!
