Winger and the song “Battle Stations” from the album ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey: Music from the Motion Picture

We’re going to hear a Winger song that’s not available on the streaming platforms and on one of my favorite major motion picture soundtracks!

If you don’t remember, this song plays as Bill and Ted head for the Battle of the Bands competition, and Station constructs the good robot version of Bill and Ted. Also in the extended version seen exclusively on TBS where Bill gives Death a pep talk. (The latter scene is unreleased on DVD.)

Here’s Winger and the song “Battle Stations” right here on Hair Metal Mixtape

That was  Winger and the song “Battle Stations” from the album ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey: Music from the Motion Picture

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey: Music from the Motion Picture is the licensed soundtrack to the 1991 Orion Pictures film Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. It was released by Interscope Records on July 9, 1991 on CD and cassette formats. In Japan it was released on August 25, 1991.[2]

Unlike the soundtrack to the film’s predecessor, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, this soundtrack features music from artists well-known at the time of the film’s release. Many of these songs, such as Faith No More’s “The Perfect Crime” and Megadeth’s “Go To Hell”, help paint the darker tone of the film. Many of the contributing artists have a cameo of some form in the film. “Shout it Out” was recorded while Slaughter was on the road during their Stick It Live tour.[3] The Winger track “Battle Stations” was written by front man Kip Winger after reading the script for the film and recorded shortly after the band returned from their first European tour.[4] Neverland’s song “Drinking Again” was not used in the film, but was a substitute for another Neverland song “For the Love (of Music)”. However the intro from “Drinking Again” was used for a television promo for the film. Both songs were released one month prior on Neverland’s self-titled debut album.[5] The version of “God Gave Rock ‘n Roll to You II” is not that which plays at the film’s end as it lacks the intro by Steve Vai and the sound of girls chanting the chorus as the song fades to end. The intro solo was released by Steve Vai in his compilation album The Elusive Light and Sound, Vol. 1, along with all of the other small pieces performed by him during the movie. Pieced together versions featuring Steve Vai’s intro have been made by fans. “Dream of a New Day” was previously released on Richie Kotzen’s 1990 album Fever Dream.[3][6] “Tommy the Cat” was previously released on Primus’ album Sailing the Seas of Cheese. In this version, the title character Tommy was voiced by singer songwriter Tom Waits.[3] Notably, the track “The Reaper Rap”, a reprise of Steve Vai’s “The Reaper”, features not only sound bytes of dialog heard in the film, but also dialog from the film’s deleted scenes now believed to be lost. Portions of “The Reaper Rap” are absent in the film during its play and feature sounds that not included in the version that appear with this release.

There you have it folks! What did you think?

…And that was your Hear ’N Tell!

The Mixtape!

OK, Mixtapers! Like I mentioned, Sundays have been said to be a day of rest, reflection and self-care. Well today I am reflecting but in a more Hair Metal Mixtape agro way at the start and then work our way into deeper self-reflection with some conflict and hopefully we come to a resolution after the PPB! 

So here’s W.A.S.P. with waxing some truth on “The Real Me” off of ‘The Headless Children to kick off today’s “I Am (I’m Me)” Sunday edition of Hair Metal Mixtape. 

That was Santa Cruz with “Aiming High” from their album ‘Screaming for Adrenaline” to wrap up today’s Hair Metal Mixtape with a resolution! Aim High baby!

And that is today’s Hair Metal Mixtape #371 – I Am (I’m Me)

I feel I got a couple of things off my chest and hopefully it put some things in perspective for some of your out there in Mixtape land right now. Thanks for tuning in and thanks for sticking around. I appreciate and respect your time. 

That’s it folks! Thanks for listening! 

I hope you are maintaining your physical distance from your friends and loved ones for now and yet also engaging in social connectivity.

Keep your vinyl clean!

Be Kind, Rewind

Peace, Love, Hair Metal!
