#103 Ultimate Power Bat Out of Helloween
Halloween is a silly, silly time, and it doesn’t get sillier than a night of shamefully enjoyable hair-metal power-ballads at the Scala, courtesy of Ultimate Power.
The only thing dumber than the music – and we’re talking Extreme, Starship, and Celine freaking Dionne here, people – was the costumery, with the mulleted rocker look being edged out by the gross, gruesome and just plain weird. Every other girl was the Black Swan from the film. It’s this year’s Joker. Who needs to be cool when tastelessness is this much fun? Nobody is who.
