I didn't feel like listing all the bands. Please comment on your other favorites from that decade.

Man, there are just way too many good songs and bands here.  I was a security supervisor for two different venues and had the great pleasure of working for a sh*tload of the bands above.  Among those I list as class acts would be the Scorps, Def Leppard, U2.  At the all time top of the heap for total d*ckheads is Guns and Roses (Axel Rose, primarily), followed very closely by Judas Priest.

#5 | 1100 days ago

I'm not really a Metal guy (I do have stuff by all these bands on my iPod tho) so it's mostly rock for me out of this list. Gave WhiteSnake the nod just for their role in "Old School." LOL And where was Anthrax? Red Hot Chilli Peppers? (fight like a brave was the shiite) Butthole Surfers? I'm not saying those bands would have cracked my top 10, but need to be on list imo, just saying.

Great choices, however Zeppelin disbanned in '79 after the death of drummer John Bonham. Terrible decision in my opinion, but it prevented them from ever making bad music (like Plant did solo)

I had many more bands listed originally, but had to trim it down so it wasn't too long.

Hey, Poison became a group I listened to regularly after my girlfriend at the time slapped in her tape with the song: "Talk  Dirty to me".  I loved it!!!---because it turned into 'bow-chicka-wow-wow' later!

Why? They didn't realease any albums during the 1980's. They stopped after Street Survivors in '77.

Believe it or not, Jimi Hendrix and Iron Butterfly, along with LED ZEPPELIN started the hard rock and then Metal surge!

Although, WIKIPEDIA (eye roll) indicates that ZEPPELIN, SABBATH & DEEP PURPLE did.

I watched this documentary once and it was definitely HENDRIX & ZEPPELIN with BUTTERFLY mentioned in there as well!

The funny thing is that all 3 bands are considered Psychedelic Rock bands and Heavy Metal was a spin off from that (hahaha)
