"Heavy Metal Parking Lot"; Full Film Available

"Heavy Metal Parking Lot" documents heavy metal fans tailgating in the parking lot outside the Capital Centre (which was demolished in December 2002) in Landover, Maryland, on May 31st, 1986, before a Judas Priest concert (with opening act Dokken)

By the early 1990s, "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" had become an underground cult-classic, usually traded on bootleg VHS videotapes. It was reportedly a favorite on the Nirvana tour bus, among many other bands. Due to growing popular demand for the film, music-rights issues were finally sorted out with Judas Priest and in 2006 an official, features-packed 20th-anniversary DVD was released.
