Don't Stop the Sandman!

In 1989, Hollywood heavy metal band ROCK SUGAR was stranded on a deserted island. For the last 20 years, the only music they had to listen to was the 80s pop cd collection of a 13 year old girl. And now, Rock Sugar has come home.

As one who will always adore This is Spinal Tap and all things insane 80s-early 90s rock, this is the most fun I've had in decades. I hope you enjoy this insane Metallica/Journey mashup.

Kinda strange for me. I had to google "Journey", but a quick listen of a few things and they could've been Bon Jovi or Def Leppard or Poison (and any other "hair" band of the 80s). The Metallica song I recognised (the Black Album was the first CD I ever bought). I remember this album being the real beginning of Metallica's commercial success and maybe not so far away from the soft rock of the aforementioned bands anyway.

Certainly an interesting musical journey

Hahaha, apparently they've got a whole album of these nutty mashups. Here's "We Will Kickstart Your Rhapsody", a Queen/Motley Crue combo:

That was great. I think I need more Journey in my CD collection.

Hey! Journey isn't an 80s Hair band! They did their best stuff in the 70s! How could you have not heard of them, They've sold like 75 million albums! That's more than Bon Jovi!
(note the two big smiley faces..)

The mashups was pretty cool. I'm going to check out more of their stuff now.

I don't know if I like these guys or not... but it's fun to listen and recognise the fusion of old songs in their music.

Wow, sounds like the setup for Big Daddy .
It was August 1959, and the Los Angeles-based musical group known as Big Daddy had finally wangled a recording contract. Their manager, wanting to give the waxing as much of a push as possible, got the band booked on a USO tour of Southeast Asia, hoping for some positive publicity. Unfortunately, the United States had no military involvement in Southeast Asia in 1959, or so the official story said, and therefore the publicity value of the tour would have turned out to be nil - had the band come back at all, which it hadn't.

Given up for dead after their vehicle was found mired in quicksand, the band spent the next twenty-four years in the custody of Laotian revolutionaries. Rock and roll musicians being at least as unpopular with the U.S. government and its official radio service as were the Communists, the Laotians more or less adopted Big Daddy as Fellow Travelers. The war, of course, went on, and during the Sixties and Seventies, returning US troops told tales of an American band being held captive. Special Forces were eventually able to piece together the story, and after the usual interminable delays, a rescue attempt was mounted in 1983, under the guise of a British motion-picture production.

Finally back in the States, Big Daddy agonized about that first recording session they had missed. Of course, during the intervening years, their record company, like so many little diskeries, had folded, and worried that the band might become a burden to the taxpayers, government officials brought in some sheet music and arranged a recording session at Camp David. The sessions were startling; although the band still had its chops, having been allowed to play by their captors all those years, the cultural isolation of northern Laos meant that Big Daddy had heard virtually none of the last two decades' worth of popular music, which meant that their recordings of Seventies and Eighties material, all that could be found in the nearest sheet-music store, were perforce arranged for Fifties performance styles. The record, of course, was unreleasable, so naturally it fell to Rhino Records to release it.
They did mashups of 50's and 80's songs, e.g. "Sussudio" vs. "Runaround Sue".

I look forward to learning more about Rock Sugar.
Just listened to the samples on their page. Holy crap. I need this album.

Also, for further listening, try Beatallica and Smash-Up Derby.

I'm following them on Facebook. At one point, they described themselves as "music for the ADD-affected. Don't like the song? Wait 30 seconds, it'll change!"
