Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Machine Head plus over 150 other bands announced for Hellfest Open Air 2024
Avenged Sevenfold, Machine Head, Metallica and the Foo Fighters have been announced as Hellfest Open Air's 2024 Festival Headliners along
It was 1984 and the band's breakthrough album Shout at the Devil was just released a few months earlier in 1983. The band was given the opportunity to perform on the game show "Pop 'N Rocker".
Here's a description about the show. Three teenagers competed. Five or six pop music trivia questions were asked; some of them having to deal with visual clues (such as pictures or clips from music videos). Each question was worth $50. After the final question was asked, the performer mentioned in the question would come out and perform a song (hence why the show was billed as "a game in concert" in its intro).
After this performance, the Countdown Round was played. The questions started at $50, and increased by $10 for each question. This continued for 60 seconds. The contestant in the lead won the game and moved on to the Superstar Round. If the game ended in a two-way tie for first place, or if all three tied, Bauman read one last question, with the person ringing in and answering correctly winning the game.
In the Superstar Round, the contestant had to unscramble the names of bands. Jon would read a clue to each one. If they could unscramble three in 30 seconds, they won a prize package worth over $2,000. After the bonus round, one of the bands mentioned in the bonus round would come out and perform a song.
The show would end with one final song by the first performer.
Watch the band perform on the show below.
