Overloaded plays music that thousands of hard rock and heavy metal fans are denied by the powers that be. Overloaded plays music for the forsaken, the people that donâ€™t matter in eyes of corporate interests. These are the very people who are written off by the media, yet spend every Friday and Saturday night at the rock clubs. The forsaken donâ€™t buy a new car every year, nor do they go on vacation to Aspen or the Bahamas. The forsaken live paycheck to paycheck and spend whatâ€™s left on cover charges, booze, cigarettes, and rock and rollâ€¦ and they wouldnâ€™t have it any other way. These are the real rock soldiers, and they donâ€™t need Mtv or Spin magazine to tell them what is good. Some even have kids and you can be damn sure their children know who the hell Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Metallica are.
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal thrives in the underground bar scene. This is where the forsaken go. They wouldnâ€™t be caught dead in techno or hip hop club. Youâ€™ll never see them standing in line, waiting to be admitted to the newest trendy hot spot. The underground is where hard liquor is drank straight up, and a lot of it. This is where cigarette smoke is breathed more than oxygen and non smokers know better than to complain. Life is not perfect though. Often, the bar owner will have the nerve to blare booty music between sets to snare some extra money out of the meat heads and jocks that wander in. This is commonly referred to as â€œtime to get in a game of poolâ€ or â€œtime to go outside and smoke a joint.â€
If you venture into the underground you may very well run into Detroitâ€™s Overloaded. Maybe youâ€™ll see them opening for one of the touring national bands that come to town. You might unexpectedly catch them in another city, opening for a band they traded shows with. Perhaps youâ€™ll stop in somewhere for last call and see Overloaded half drunk and still kicking ass at the tail end of their third set that night. Or maybe, just maybe you will hear of them and actually go out of your way to see what the fuck is up with this band Overloaded that proudly dares to play hard rock and heavy metal music.
