Paramount+ Prepares to Rock with Documentaries on the Legendary Hair Metal-Era of the '80s

Glam rockers and headbangers, unite! A brand-new documentary series from Paramount+ that explores the bizarre and famous world of 1980s hair metal is coming soon, so get ready for a crazy adventure back to the Sunset Strip. Known by the title “Nöthin’ But a Good Time: The Uncensored Story of ’80s Hair Metal,” this series offers an in-depth exploration of this flamboyant period of rock & roll, along with renowned musician interviews and stories from behind the scenes that will have you turning up the volume.

On Thursday, June 20, the information was made public exclusively by Paramount+ and revealed to Billboard magazine. Producing the docuseries is a team of MTV Entertainment Studios, Gorilla Flicks, and Spoke Studios, all of whom have extensive knowledge of the music and the era they are focusing on. The press release states that “Nöthin’ But a Good Time” would provide “a fresh and shockingly candid behind-the-scenes look at one of music’s most iconic eras.”

But this is more than a nostalgic journey. The show aims to investigate the “insanity and blazing ambition” that propelled these bands and still has an impact on contemporary music. Beyond the spandex, teased hair, and power ballads, there’s more to this story. A number of influential figures from the movement will be featured, such as guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo of Skid Row, drummer Stephen Pearcy of Ratt, Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme, and television personality Riki Rachtman, who was closely associated with MTV’s 1980s coverage of the genre.

It’s interesting to note that several surprising names will be interviewed for the docuseries. Steve-O from Jackass and lead vocalist for Slipknot are also scheduled to perform. By including viewpoints from both individuals who experienced hair metal and others who were impacted by it, this widens the documentary’s breadth.

Executive producer Paul Tremaine is leading the charge for the series. “A celebration of the most outrageous decade in rock n’ roll,” Tremaine said in a statement about the project. My ode to the 1980s, in other words.” With a title like “Nöthin’ But a Good Time,” it’s obvious that the focus will be on the explosive energy and contagious fun that hair metal brought to the music industry. This excitement bodes well for the series.

Although the series’ official release date has not yet been disclosed, the announcement affirms that it will premiere onParamount+ later this year. Now get out your torn jeans and Aqua Net hairspray and get ready to relive the decade of excess, guitar shredding, and prayer-filled hits.

Taken over by Paramount+, “Nöthin’ But a Good Time” is sure to be a must-see for all those who recall the heyday of hair metal or who just want a taste of a genuinely remarkable period in rock and roll history.
