Russ, you're upsetting the young kid from Canada ;)

Thanks for looking out for me. You really are a good friend.

Thought about Motley Crue aswell. I listened through the feelgood album but I don't get this party vibe, that I thought they're known for. It felt pretty moody and dark to me. Maybe I just didn't understand the album? I don't know...

 

I never really understood why people like Led Zeppelin, I haven't heard a single LZ song that caught me.

Don't be jealous. It's not an attractive quality.

it was bad enough when the thread started by disparaging Extreme, but then people spoke ill of the Crue and Dokken, and now it's gotten borderline sacrilege with the inclusion of Journey, Boston, and Dio :tsk:

:lol:

I mentioned in another thread how we over here were pretty sheltered from all things Boston, Styx, Journey, etc except for the few hits they had.

Dio, I mean I really like I Could Have Been A Dreamer.
Just did a top 10 dio songs search to see if there were any others I liked and couldn't imagine the sound of any of them, including Holy Diver, which I believe people generally froth.

Pretty comprehensive list and none I'd disagree with. You forgot the most important of them all, though, which is of course Van Halen.

Most of grunge periods, many 70s bandl and also many modern bands post 2000

I can live with one Greatest Hits album of bands like AC/DC, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, Journey, Styx, Van Halen, Boston

I love DIO. Back in my pre-school days the Roger Glover song "Love is all" animated film clip from "The Butterfly Ball" was on early morning TV literally every morning. One of my earliest ever music memories. I think his voice imprinted on my brain.

They're so overrated I completely forgot about them.

Yeah, I will admit that I struggled with pre 1984 VH.
I mean we all love/loved Jump, Panama, Hot For Teacher, I'll Wait yeah?

Van Hagar on the other hand was amazing.

Who likes 'Hot for teacher?' If someone asked me to epitomise an 80's hard rock filler song (that to VH's credit, for better or worse, a lot of bands copied) it would be 'Hot for teacher.' Absolute garbage. 

No idea what 'I'll wait' is meaning it was either so bad I forgot it or... well, that's about the only scenario.

    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
