I can’t play guitar for the life of me, but even the late Jeff Healey can see that “Heavy Metal” Van Hammer doesn’t know crap about playing guitar.

Hey, at least 3 Count sang their own songs!

Between the shots of him obviously not playing the guitar (seriously- I could do a better job pretending to play it!), the hair metal music video cliches, and the artsy-fartsy black and white shots of him riding the motorcycle, I can’t help but love how over-the-top and silly this thing is!

David Lee Roth, eat your heart out! AWWW YEAH!

(You get a million bonus points for referencing Jeff Healey).

Who could resist head banging to this song?


Yeah; I don’t know either, dude…

    “Light Rock” Van Hamster he was probably my most hated WCW character of all time. Just seemed like a total clod in the ring and the whole rock star thing was so awful. The sad part is Hamster wasn’t even the goofiest guy in his “band”, check out Red Handband Man, total putz. I could see him know working as an accountant by day and at night kickin’ it with his homies in a Michael Bolton cover band called Bolties Buddies or they’d be MB4LIFE.

    Judging by Hammer’s preference to whom he let into the show that Pete Townshend was a big influence on him.

    The sad thing is, when he had a great opponent that could beat a match out of him, he could do quite well.

    The Clash of the Champions Falls Count Anywhere match he had with Cactus Jack was by far the best match of his I ever saw. I really detest falls count anywhere matches, but this single match remains one of my favorite of all time…and i didn’t like Cactus Jack OR Van Hammer at the time…

    Really funny video.

    I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that no one has posted a Man Mountain Rock picture on this thread yet.

    The funny thing is, around the time he debuted was when Nirvana released ‘Nevermind”. So not only was the video and and the gimmick cliched, but in a few months it would be out of date,
