Well, it's official. Metal is cool again. The Rods have reunited. When bands that went nowhere the first time decide to reunite, that is a sign the genre has truly arrived.
Way back when Walter Mondale was still presidential timber, The Rods were described (by their manager probably) as New York's version of Motorhead. Puhleeze. The Rods couldn't carry Lemmy's jock. These guys were a joke 25 years ago, I can only imagine how they will look and sound today.
