About Blue Oyster Cult
Blue Öyster Cult is the thinking man's heavy metal group. Created on a college campus by a couple of rock critics, it maintained a close relationship with a series of literary figures (often in the fields of science fiction and horror), including Eric Von Lustbader, Patti Smith, Michael Moorcock, and Stephen King, while turning out some of the best metal music of the 1970s.
Their 1976 album Agents of Fortune yielded the hit single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" and became their first platinum seller. In 1994, Blue Öyster Cult released Cult Classic, an album of re-recorded favorites, in connection with the use of their music in the TV miniseries of horror novelist Stephen King's The Stand. The group's music reached a whole new generation of hard rock fans when Metallica covered the BÖC classic "Astronomy" for their best-selling Garage Inc. album in 1998.
