AllMusic Review by

A cut above most covers collections, this set has even more going for it than its alluring portrait of the noted porn star Jesse Jane, featuring as it does hard-rocking versions of popular 1980s metal hits (some of which aren't strictly '80s hits, but who's counting?) by renowned metal musicians of the era. High points include Don Dokken performing Alice Cooper's "Eighteen," Quiet Riot's Kevin Dubrow's interpretation of Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle," and Motorhead's Lemmy's inimitable performance of AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top."
