Don’t Blame It On Love - Danger Danger

She’s Gone - Y&T (best track Whitesnake never did)

Take Me Back - Cinderella 

Fighter - Kane Roberts

No Bed Of Roses - Lynch Mob

Mr. Rainmaker - Warrant

I Wanna Know - Shotgun Messiah

Can’t Stand The Heartache - Skid Row

Take Me Back Home - Steelheart

Straight For The Heart - Whitesnake ... Here I Go Again is still my fave though.

Favourite Twisted Sister track is Hot Love by a mile but assumed it was a single since they made a music video for the track.

Sorry to play the "too young to know" card, but I wasn't even born when most of this music was on the airwaves, so I rarely know which were the singles. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but these are the songs that come to mind:

Babylon AD - Bad Blood

Extreme - Am I Ever Gonna Change

Harem Scarem - Stranger than Love

Mr. Big - Alive and Kickin'

Queensryche - Neue Regel

Steelheart - Sheila

And I'm sure I'll think of more.

Pretty sure it was, but by then TS were pretty much done.
LIFS is a Dee album under the TS name to try and help it do well, ironically interest probably would have been greater if he released as a solo album.
So Hot Love did a little bt, but compared to the few big hits, nothing like it should have.

Thought of another one

Extreme - Unconditonally

Many to choose from, but here's a couple from AC/DC, a couple from Bon Jovi, one from Skid Row and one from GNR. I agree with KarpeyRyd about Alive and Kickin' and I'd also add Road to Ruin.

Yeah, "Road to Ruin" is a close second. Or third. I dunno, I might put "My Kinda Woman" ahead. Anyway, all better than the singles.

Bon Jovi - Wild Is The Wind was the first to pop in my head also....One of my favorite Bon Jovi songs....should've been a bigger tune.

Warrant Mr Rainmaker also high on my list.  Great tune.

Def Leppard - Scar is another....Probably the best tune on the X album that got totally ignored.

And for a more current choice, Def Leppard - Wings Of An Angel.  Probably my favorite song on their last album that didn't get any single treatment and hasn't been played live.

Along with CureTheSane, I am 100% a Van Hagar man. I love DLR also, but if I had to choose it would definitely be Sammy. I always thought of this track as his "Hot for Teacher" moment. You could probably add this one to the "Corona playlist" as well

On a side note, this was the first CD I ever owned.
