Bad News were the spoof Heavy Metal band created by Adrian Edmondson (Vyvyan Bastard from the Young Ones) for the Comic Strip. The parody launched before America's "This Is Spinal Tap", which i love, but feel that those guys never really got Heavy Metal. Parody tends to be more dated than the thing it is making fun of, but Bad News hold up quite well. I'm waiting for someone to parody the absurdly pretentious world of Black Metal (outside of the actual Black Metal bands). The saving grace of early Heavy Metal is that it is still rooted in the basic reality of Rock & Roll & sure, it delves into fantasy all the time, but nothing like Dimmu Borgir. Love the detail that they're all wearing white shoes (just like early 80s Motörhead) on the cover. Enjoy.
