Review by Jeff Maki

Can we end the debate now? Rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Metal will never die. Didn’t anybody listen to Neil Young? Didn’t anybody listen to Ronnie James Dio? If that isn’t enough, I have further proof in the 26,000 fans who attended the sold-out 2015 Rock Allegiance festival at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. Featuring living legends Rob Zombie, Korn and Godsmack, current rock bands carrying the torch like Five Finger Death Punch and Bring Me the Horizon, along with a lineup of other mainstays and up-and-coming bands, Rock Allegiance was a nonstop day celebrating rock and metal.

This entry is part 1 of 11 in the series The Top 10 Headbanger's Ball Breakthrough Bands

1. White Zombie – “Thunder Kiss ’65”

It seems crazy to think of hearing Rob Zombie or White Zombie for the first time—hasn’t he always existed? For a large number of metalheads and I, Headbanger’s Ball is where we first saw “Thunderkiss ’65” ( La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One, 1992). It was a strange combination of Metallica, horror, hard rock and punk. It was basically what Zombie has become known for—out of this world. Even the video was original, a stripped-down rock-out with a dreadlocked Zombie and band performing with women dancing around, monsters and props out in the desert—a precursor of what came over the next two decades with White and Rob Zombie. The videos came in furiously to the “Ball” and MTV after this, and like I said in the intro, Zombie was even a regular set-designer. Between Headbanger’s Ball and its No. 1 fans, Beavis and Butthead, White Zombie was the poster-metal band for MTV during this period, making this debut video No. 1 on my list.
