Has this been done? Oh, well if iy has, we can do it again.

The big 4 re pretty thrashy if you ask me, I'm more interested in what would you consider to be a HArd Rock Big 4

For me, probably
Kiss
Def Leppard
Van Hagar
Twisted Sister

Why are there only three in your list?

I'm not sure I understand this thread. Can you explain a bit more? The four biggest, most influential, innovative and prolific bands, in our opinion?

haha,  accidentally posted early while I was still thinking about the 4th

No real rules, I guess who you'd condiser to be the 4 big time bands you'd want to see together.

Can be newer bands, more traditional bands, whatever.

Just get sick of hearing about the big 4 metal bands that don't represent me or my music in any way.

Def Leppard

AC/DC

Kiss

Guns n Roses

 

Only seen Def Leppard live and the rest are bands I'd like to get the chance to see before it's too late. They played a big part in making hard rock so great.

IF I was going to choose a wish list big 4 of bands that I would want to see live together (or at all for that matter) it would be:

 

Spread Eagle

Warrior Soul

Junkyard

Pantera

 

I'd toss in Teeze/Roughouse, Kix, Saxon and Heavy Pettin' for an all day sucker.

Dokken 

Van Hagar

Y&T

Tesla 

That 4th spot could change almost hourly (Stryper, Def Leppard, Great White, and Brother  Firetribe were all considered)  but that top 3 is concrete!  :banger:

Aerosmith and Y&T are great shouts. 

Y&T is in my top 5 favourite bands of all time. I didn't include them in my list as I went for the behemoths of the golden era. 

Whitesnake is also of the greats, but I omitted them because I saw them live this past summer.

If I go to "smaller" bands who made the scene what it was and that I'd give an arm to see, I would love to get to an Axe concert.

I'm so dumb... I still don't really get the thread. The bands that are big in my world that I would most love to see in their original form;

Cauterize

Danger Danger

Waltham (playing USA!USA!USA! songs in their set)

Fate

 

But the four "popular" bands I'd love to see;

Danger Danger

Poison

Harem Scarem

Fate

Don;t think I've ever heard of Fate

You should. Check out 'Scratch N' Stiff' tomorrow. ;) I'd be amazed if you can't dig it.

Probably Dokken, Queensryche, Skid Row and Van Hagar. All band members are still alive, so it is technically possible.

Is Don Dokkens voice still alive though?

Mine are all old-school (Old's Kool) from my grade school days through my teens.  These are the bands that far and away I played the most and or had the most influence.  Difficult to narrow it down to four.  This is chronological for me.

KISS

SCORPIONS

DEF LEPPARD

BON JOVI

 

Edit... I really need to get Motley Crue in there.  KISS was so influential to me from 1978 - 1984... but Motley took things to a new level.  Man, I need that 5th. band!

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
