I wonder how many other metalheads still have their Z-Rock Metal Militia tags. I can't remember exactly when I got these but it was probably in 1990 or 1991. There was this rock music station I used to listen to called "Z-Rock" whose slogan was "If it's too loud, you're too old." They played mostly heavy metal music. I was really into a lot of Guns N Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row, and Motley Crue back then (and still do, by the way!) so it made sense for me to join the Metal Militia.
But you see, we didn't have Internet or Email back then so it's like we could only communicate by phone or postal mail (other than over the radio station, that is!). I don't know what happened then but I guess after I moved from Hawaii to the mainland US, I lost touch with Z Rock. Next thing you know, the station was no longer available and I didn't have a metal militia to belong to anymore. :(
I've kept my membership dog tags, though, as you can see. Over 20 years and I still have them!!! Do I rock or what?!!! LOL!
