Metal After Midnight: Blue Oyster Cult “Cities On Flame With Rock N’ Roll”

Besides having one of the coolest names in rock, Buck Dharma was one of the driving forces behind New York City’s “Blue Oyster Cult”.   Their debut came out in 1972 during the days of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.  They may not have had the impact or fame of some of their peers, but their influence on Rock and Metal could not be understated.

They were often called a “thinking man’s Rock band” which may have hurt their mainstream appeal, but they were always very well respected among their peers and the underground bands.  B.O.C. had massive AOR hits with “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” and “Burnin’ For You”, but it was their heavier tracks like “Cities On Fire With Rock N’ Roll”

B.O.C. had a big influence on the entire Rock and Metal scene, especially on a genre that developed in the 90′s called “Stoner Rock” that was really nothing more than rock in the vein of late 60′s and early 70′s.  Here’s “Stoner” legends Fu Manchu with their cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla”.
