FLASHBACK: Remember The Time Paul Stanley (KISS) and Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe) Were in a Band Together!?

FLASHBACK: Remember The Time Paul Stanley (KISS) and Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe) Were in a Band Together!?

It was 1989 and Heavy Metal was at it's peak. Well to us old people that's the term we use for such bands as Van Halen, Dokken and Mötley Crüe back then.

Albums that year included Mötley Crüe's Dr. Feelgood, Alice Cooper's Trash and Skid Row's debut album Skid Row.

Also that year, the horror movie 'Shocker' came out in theatres. The movie is about Horace Pinker, a television repairman, who faces execution by the electric chair -- but a deal with the devil allows him to come back as electricity.

Once he changes into his new form, Pinker goes after the detective that brought him down, Lt. Don Parker, as well as Parker's adopted son, Jonathan. However, Jonathan's mysterious connection to Pinker through dreams might help track the killer's moves.

A soundtrack for the movie was made featuring songs by Alice Cooper, Megadeth and Dangerous Toys. A fictional band name 'The Dudes of Wrath' was also formed and it featured a supergroup composed of Paul Stanley of Kiss and Desmond Child, both on vocals, Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell and Guy Mann-Dudeon on guitars, Quiet Riot's Rudy Sarzo on bass guitar, and Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee on drums.

The band also included backing vocals by Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Kane Roberts.

Megadeth also did an excellent cover of the Alice Cooper song 'No More Mr. Nice Guy' on the soundtrack. You can watch the video of it below:
