Pointless video post - ‘Hiroshima’ by Legend

Been awhile since I’ve done a pointless video post, so here is one straight from the glory days of Brit metal - in themselves not exactly wonderful, except for the musical talent they inspired. These guys are Legend - a sadly underrated, underground Brit metal band from the Channel Islands which broke up in 1984 but came back in 2002 with the album Still screaming. A little bit more laid-back, a little bit more progressive-sounding than Maiden or Saxon in terms of musical style, but the lyrics of ‘Hiroshima’ give Maiden’s ‘2 Minutes to Midnight’ or Saxon’s ‘Fire in the Sky’ a run for their money in terms of anger at nuclear holocaust (a very popular topic in Brit metal). Apologies for the poor video quality; but the song is quite good.


  1. Great video. And some people say metal has no mind or conscience! Bah!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it! Actually, you'd probably get a kick out of the title track on their comeback album, 'Still Screaming' - it's basically about how a lot of things are still the same today as they were in the '80's.
