About Episode

  1. Through thunderous anthems and a kick-ass attitude, hard rock bands bring out the headbanger in each of us. Join host Carmen Electra for VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock, the definitive soundtrack to any air guitar performance. This five-part series spans music's high-volume era from its chord-crashing genesis in the '60s (Yardbirds, Rolling Stones, Hendrix), through its arena-rock ascendance (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith), the angry new wave (Sex Pistols, The Clash), the alternative movement (Nirvana, Metallica, Soundgarden), and beyond. The special features never-before-seen performance footage, rare photos, archival clips, and newly-recorded exclusive interviews with the artists themselves. Ritchie Blackmore, Chuck D., Alice Cooper, Billy Corgan, CC DeVille, Lita Ford, Peter Frampton, Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar, Rob Halford, James Hetfield, Kid Rock, Robby Krieger, Vince Neill, Rick Nielsen, Ted Nugent, Ozzy Osbourne, Liz Phair, Henry Rollins, Richie Sambora, Slash, Dee Snider, and Ann and Nancy Wilson are among the artists who talk about the effect and influence of hard rock's raging royalty. 100.
