Every Monday morning I try to look back and bring you all of last week's Power 96 Cool Ones brought to you by Kelly Auto Parts on Seventh Street in Faribault or online at kellysautosalvage.com. If you've ever wondered how I chose my Cool Ones, it's pretty simple. Basically it's usually songs that I don't think have seen the light of day in a while or a tune that just pops into my head or suggestions from you, the listener at:

This week I featured a nice range of artists from hair metal, classic rockers, an alternative band suggested by a listener, a heavy metal band once demonized by churches and parents and now considered fairly mainstream and a glam metal band out of L.A. known for their profane but humorous lyrics.

    Steel Panther: Eyes of the Panther

    This band usually deals with nastier lyrics than the one on this single but they really know how to rock. Even if they're a bit tongue in cheek they certainly put on a good show.

    Kiss: Thrills in the Night

    This single comes from their twelfth studio album, Animalize. This was the only album to feature guitarist Mark St. John. He was replaced by Bruce Kulick after only about being with Kiss for about 8 months.
