Tumblr User Shares Sightings of Their City's "80s Guy"

If you live in a big enough city, you likely have someone you refer to as "mowhawk guy" or "piano lady" or "roller blading guy." In this case we have a guy straight out of a Def Leppard video. If anything, this guy inspires feelings of nostalgia for the 80s and 90s. Every city has its own cast of local eccentrics who dance to the beat of their own drum. In this guy's case, that drum playing hair metal.

Funny tumblr post about eccentric 80s guy sightings.

Moments don't get much more pure than this. Just a candid moment of an old man in his car absolutely loving some sweet heavy riffs. Rock on, old man. Rock on.

If you've been telling people "metal up your ass" for the last couple decades, well, I've got some bad news for you. When you play Metallica in a major key, it just sounds like pop-punk. Sorry, metal militia, but we're all lame.
