Default The 80's metal thread...

I had to do it. I realize there are a lot of kids here who missed the whole thing, but I'm back on another 80's metal tear, and there's nothing to do but talk about it.

I was 11 when I first heard Van Halen and I was addicted from then on. I let the genre go a little in the early 90's, but not for grunge...I was big into "depression wave", like the Cure and stuff (Hey, they were my College years!)...but I still went back.

Anyway, I've been downloading all kinds of stuff...sound out if you recognize!

Outside the obvious, here are some of my fave's.

Iron Maiden, Metallica (pre-Black Album), Slayer, Krokus, Zebra, Asia, Armored Saint, Merciful Fate/King Diamond, Megadeath, Riot, White Lion, Anthrax, The Cult, Dokken, Cinderella, Dio, Queensryche, WASP, etc, etc..

Great musicians, good songwriting, but the message was usually very feel good and 80's...

The only cd's I have on your list is White Lion and an old 45 of Asia's "Heat of the Moment". I have Metallica's best cd, "And Justice for All.....", Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets.

HUGE 80's metal fan. That was my era. Was in a band in high school and everything (drums). I still listen to a bunch of metal to this day.

Good Thread!

Dude, that is awesome...I was a novice drummer at 14 and just banging away when a distant neighbor heard me playing and boldly knocked on my door...my parents were immensely cool and let him up...he absolutely SHREDDED on guitar...we became good friends, but I gave up the drums to sing. I was in 3-4 bands over the next few years, and they were all good. I just kind of drifted away from it all...but I've recently been dowloading a lot of that music and been singing it at karaoke joints.

I am seriously looking at buying an electronic drum kit...not to play out, just for fun.

Oh yeah dude, this is my kinda thread. Im 80's metal till the end. Nothing but!! Listen to it every day at work, every day in the car, and computer is full of tons of 80s metal and glam rock songs. Wife made me cut off the long hair and lose the mullet a long time ago, but well, ya know

Poison,Firehouse, Van Halen, LA Guns, Skid Row, Guns n Roses, Slaughter, Dokken, KISS (of course), Twisted Sister, Europe, etc.

80's metal will live on forever and in the words of the Great Sebastian Bach from Skid Row, " We've all heard these songs a million times, but every time we still put our fist in the air" !!
