I had no idea what that song was but youtubed it and it's familiar. I don't hate it, but it's garage band throwaway trash I can easily do without. ;)

And to the rest of the thread... who ever said Dokken were the best band of the 80's? Why did that get brought up? Did someone say they were? 

did you even read the poll 🤔

Can't stand Led Zep, Dokken are just ok and i love Firehouse, but none of these bands are the best of their respective decade.

Read the poll, yeah. Doesn't say anything about best bands of each particular decade.

So I read between the lines and assume you meant had I read the opening post? To answer that question - no, I had not read it in 14 years. But I went back and read it and it's just a dude saying these were the best bands in his opinion. No big deal, to each their own. I'm sure he'd not agree with your best band from the 80's, and I'd have a different one and so would 90% of people. Dokken, at least, would probably feature pretty high on most people's lists, so it's not all bad.

Just saw this.

I think Firehouse had my favorite album out of these bands with their debut but went with Dokken as I feel like they had much more quality material than Firehouse overall.

I doubt Dokken would scrape my top 20 but there you go.

    • Ok. They're all playable, now. 
    • I love this album. I asked Jason Bonham after a Foreigner concert why there was no third Bonham album. "Drugs are a terrible thing, man" was his answer. 
    • Was it that a Led Zeppelinish sound wasn't what the public wanted at the time? Was it that they weren't pretty enough pretty boys, or just the wrong timing? Was it too long after their alright selling debut? I'm not really sure why Mad Hatter tanked in 1992. Check out this track which could have easily been placed on "Physical Graffiti" without raising any eyebrows.  Maybe that was the issue. Maybe, on this album the really good tracks owed a bit too much to the mighty Led Zep. But, hey, the drummer's bloody dad was in the band so it's OK to sound like that surely!  Another highlight was this epic: Maybe now that it is finally OK to sound like a classic hard rock band (ahem GFL) it could be a time to revisit this good album released by Bonham in 1992. And those drums! They boom so loudly...
    • The new National Anthem of the United States of America?     
    • Yeah, but most of the album is forgettable. But I also bought it thinking the album cover was stoopid... until I opened it up! ;}
    • Like the Japanese bonus track of Delta. Yay.
    • In 1994, Arcade released their second album, a year after the moderately successful self-titled debut. For some reason A/2 seemingly sank without a trace and soon after the band was no more. It's a pity cause check out this track: In any other year or release we would have been all over a track of the quality of "Angry". Another track worthy of highlight is "Get Off My Back".  To me this track predicts the sound of bands like Velvet Revolver or Beautiful Creatures. It manages to keep that sleazy vibe but has that gritty approach that was perfected in the new wave of sleaze in the 2000s.  Of course, Arcade were known for having Fred Coury and Stephen Pearcy as members, but apart from the vocals, I hear little of their two previous bands in the sound.  While these two tracks are highlights, the rest of the album has a similar vibe. In case, like me, you missed it first time around  it may be well worth a revisit. (Also, check out the cover art in its full fold out glory...)  
    • Actually, using the same guys and continuing with the same racist/offensive theme that suits Glam/Sleaze so well, how about, GLAMMAR NAZIS
