Whitesnake shouldn't be on that list IMO as their last two albums have been great.

 

There are many I could go with such as Def Leppard but they are still semi successful and there are many fans that seem to enjoy the Def Leppard lite of the last two decades. My vote goes to Queensryche as they are just plain horrible now. You can blame it on Degarmo leaving or Geoff Tate running the band and him trying to make them a new U2 but whatever the reason is their last 15 years has pretty much been a waste and they haven't done anything intersting really since the Promised Land release.

AC/DC and Dokken are the only two on the list that I still listen to with any kind of regularity. So I guess other than those two, everyone on that list could fall into a black hole tomorrow and I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

 

That said...even though I love Dokken as much as the next guy, they've had more than their time in the sun. Time to put that old dog to sleep.

I don't think Dokken, Whitesnake or the Crue should be on that list.

Solid releases by all in recent years, especially Whitesnake.

 

I voted Queensryche. I have not bothered with any of their crap in quite some time and judging by things I read here and there I am not missing anything.

At least Dokken has made some great albums since their glory dayz.

I think KISS is doin' fine with their last 'Sonic Boom' disc, and I heard this new one is going to be solid too

 

QUEENSRYCHE should be the first band on that list, and came up second should be DEF LEPPARD

the rest I think are still okay but if BON JOVI did a new album like 'The Circle' again, they should be on the third list.

Most bands on the list I either just don't care about (Aerosmith, Van Halen & AC/DC) so I never really buy much of their stuff anyway, or the others are still doing fine. The only 2 from the list who really need to call it a day are Queensryche and Lillian Axe.

 

Never been the biggest Queensryche fan, but they had their moments and have not had one of those (a moment) in decades.

 

Lillian Axe have not been worthwhile since Ron Taylor left, and will not be unless he returns. Which it doesn't look like he'll do, so this band really, really needs to end, sadly. :(

I didn't realize you could vote for more than one, but it let me choose as many as I wanted so I went with the first 5 on the list and also Great white. Queensryche, Lillian Axe and Def Leppard haven't released anything decent in years. Don Dokken's voice is beyond gone, Aerosmith is now a joke band and Great White is a mess.

 

I was tempted to put Bon Jovi on the list but they are still popular as hell and even though they don't put out music that I want to listen to they are still selling albums and making lots of money and that's why people get into this business in the first place.

This is easily Queensryche since the last tolerable album was Hear in the Now Frontier...and that was 1997? MOst of these bands are still excellent but I would also included Lillian Axe who has sucked since everything released after Psychoschizophrenia.

Aerosmith (Should become Oprah's house band)

Bon Jovi

Lillian Axe

wherre the hell is KISS?

or are they on the other list of "those who should have called it a day 20 years ago"?

Sonic Boom was pretty successful in the states and they are still doing well touring plus have a new album in the can.

Lillian Axe without Taylor is pointless.

 

Aerosmith have long since flushed their credibility down the shitter.

 

I'll hold my tongue until I hear VH's new one.

 

Haven't been interested in AC/DC since Thunderstruck. Give me Rhino Bucket's first 3 discs any day of the week.

 

I think Great White has remained consistent with later releases and I look forward to hearing Terry Ilous in the studio with them.

WTF? What's this all about? Do you mean to say Jack Russell is no longer in the band? If so, as cool as an album with Ilious could possibly be, that is the end of the "real" Great White as far as I'm concerned. When did this happen and was it mentioned on the forum and I just missed it? Man, what a surprise!

Unless you are being sarcastic it's all over the website. I love Terry but I would ather hear another xyz and another GW cd with Jack. All of this switching singers amongst bands is garbage!

Geoff, I'm very disappointed in you. For one that is so involved in this board I thought for sure this would be old news for you. :rofl2:

Thanks for the link, mate. Looks like it all happened while I was away. Wow, hard to say what I think after glancing through that thread. I don't think that Great White is really Great White without Russell, but that said, I would gladly listen to both bands if they release new CDs. Man, what a mess...

    • I like it plenty, they've always had this kind of gloomy side to some of their songs, and they do that really well.
    • I'm becoming the biggest fan of this band. I also like how they chose non-obvious covers. It shows they have a sense of history and must be genre fans like us.
    • I dig that new tune. Nice. 
    • New song is okay but I don't like their metal sound. Everything is too loud and hurts when you turn the volume up a little. Samples on Itunes of the rest of the album sound okay, too. Some moments that are worse than I ever imagined Wig Wam to be (The american dream chorus absolutely doesn't fit and only contains 3 notes and god by your side would be okay if Åge sang it, sailor and the desert sun screams anything but Wig Wam), some moments are quite cool (Forevermore is very different, uppercut shazam is hard hitting and a typical Wig wam anthem). In the end it's too much Trond Holter for me. He's writing good riffs but he can't be quiet for a second. It's just missing the effortlessness and the good vibe in my opinion.  
    • 'The Big Easy' out March 17th.   Press release: Already the first lines of the new John Diva song "Back In The Days" convey what feeling the band stands for. Spandex pants, youthful recklessness, party mood and full batteries in the Walkman: John Diva & The Rockets Of Love bring the carefree moments of the 80s into the present and make them sound like the new hot shit. And can't we all use a little carefree? John Diva & The Rockets Of Love stand for fat parties, passionate stage shows stage shows, but also for liberal messages in their lyrics. Bullshit? No way. So the five musicians give the genre-usual sexism in their lyrics a clear rebuff, for example in songs like "Boys Don't Play With Dolls". "With us, everyone is welcome and appreciated," frontman John Diva makes clear. Good thing. Because I think we can all use a little carefree attitude. TRACKLIST 1. California Rhapsody 2. The Big Easy 3. God Made Radio 4. Runaway Train 5. Thunder 6. Believe 7. Back In The Days 8. Hit And Run 9. Boys Don’t Play With Dolls 10. The Limit Is The Sky 11. Capri Style 12. Wild At Heart    
    • New song 'ln For The Count' (Balance cover)   Tracklisting: 1. In For the Count (Balance cover) 2. Dancin' in the Ruins (Blue Öyster Cult cover) 3. In My Dreams (REO Speedwagon cover) 4. Subdivisions (Rush cover) LINE-UP: Alex Falk - vocals Oscar Bromvall - guitars Rickard Gramfors - bass Freddie Allen - drums      
    • From Frontiers: Norwegian rock n' roll warriors Wig Wam have announced they will release their new studio album, "Out Of The Dark" on February 10, 2023. Coming on the heels of renewed, enthusiastic interest in the band thanks to their classic track 'Do Ya Wanna Taste It' being used as the theme song for HBO's popular Peacemaker television series, "Out Of The Dark" sees an already extremely talented band feeling truly reinvigorated and inspired.  Wig Wam, vocalist Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen), guitarist Teeny (Trond Holter), bassist Flash (Bernt Jansen), and drummer Sporty (Øystein Andersen), formed in Halden, Norway in 2001 and have been mixing '80s inspired glam metal with classic hard rock, with entertaining lyrics and over-the-top imagery thrown in, to create a good old fashioned rock n' roll vibe for over two decades. In 2005, the year after the release of their debut album (first titled 667.. The Neighbour of the Beast and later changed to Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller), the band had their first international breakthrough when they represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest, placing ninth with the song "In My Dreams". The band would go on to release three more studio albums, Wig Wamania (2006), Non Stop Rock 'N Roll (2010), and Wall Street (2012) before splitting up in 2014.  The band would reunite in 2019 and work on a new album, Never Say Die that was released in early 2021. In 2022, the band had a stroke of good fortune when film/television director James Gunn selected their 2010 song "Do Ya Wanna Taste It" (from the album Non Stop Rock 'N Roll) as the opening theme song for the HBO Max show Peacemaker starring John Cena. The show, based on a DC Comics character, showcased the band to a whole new audience who had been previously unaware of them and has seen the band taking on renewed interest and booking more and more live dates around the world.  With new album "Out In The Dark" in tow, Wig Wam is ready to show even more rock 'n roll fans around the globe their entertaining take on hard rock! Tracklisting: 1. Out Of The Dark 2. High And Dry 3. Forevermore 4. Bad Luck Chuck 5. Uppercut Shazam 6. Ghosting You 7. The Purpose 8. The American Dream 9. 79 10. God By Your Side 11. Sailor And The Desert Sun Line-Up: Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen) - vocals Teeny (Trond Holter) - guitars Flash (Bernt Jansen) - bass Sporty (Øystein Andersen) - drums
