RATT!!!!!! Although some good competition, the opening riffs of Lack Of Communication were always a favorite and although some good hits on this one, Scene Of The Crime was my favorite track on this album :banger:

Ya think it was a great year for Rock? Man, another tough one but Dokken was a pretty easy choice for me. Lotsa good stuff in this poll though.

This is pretty much where my interests start. It was a close call between Dokken, Bon Jovi and Ratt... but Ratt got it for me in the end. Awesome album... just love that thing!!! Agree with T-Bone too, 'Scene of the crime' is my fave too.

Steve Perry - Street Talk. Especially like it as he is obviously doing something he enjoys rather than plumping for Journeys tried and tested formula of the time.

Almost went with Dio, but I had to go with Ratt for exactly the same reasons as T-BONE... how scary is that? ;)

FOR ME => QUEENSRYCHE " the warning " , who is my favorite band !!

But it's very difficult to make a choice .

Dokken " tooth and nail" fantastic

Icon '"st" fabulous

Twisted Sister "Stay hungry" a great classical

Whitesnake " slide it in "

Ratt " out of the cellar" brilliant

Allow me to be the first to vote for Black N Blue. "Chains Around Heaven"..."Wicked Bitch"..."Hold On To 18"...those are some great anthems, and while there are plenty of classic contributions to the hard rock genre on this list, Black N Blue is the album that gets the most play time in my stereo.

Icon (s/t) got my vote in a close run off (I mean play off) with Dokken,Ratt and Black N blue!

One of my ALL-Time favorite songs was Track 2 from the Autograph (Sign In Please)

TURN UP THE RADIO! :headbanger:

Yeah, I still remember the first time my friend put on a tape of Lack of Communication. EXCELLENT!!!

 

I went with Ratt, one of my Top 5 favorite albums of all time.

1984 was another GREAT year for rock! There are so many good ones, it is hard to pick just one!

I narrowed it down to 4:

Dokken "Tooth & Nail"

Ratt "Out Of The Cellar"

Y&T "In Rock We Trust"

Whitesnake "Slide It In"

 

In the end, I went with....Dokken "Tooth & Nail"!

    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.    
    • Yeah mate, that's definitely them through and through. Maybe slightly "ballsier" in recent years, but if you dig that you'll dig their gear. 
    • I was meant to see Crazy Lixx too, and it turned into a massive fuck-around. They didn't end up coming to Australia after a massive failed festival event. I think they were still headed here, but it was right at the start of covid and I think that may have been a factor in them cancelling too. Pretty devastating at the time, but thankfully Reckless Love had more testicular fortitude and that was one of, if not my favourite (and as fate would have it, last) concert outing so far. 
    • Just heard that 'We unite' song. Not into it, but hoping there's better to come as I like the vocals (of course) and it's a good ballsy sound. Just a terrible chorus. 
    • I've just revisited the original and as worthy as the above cover is, the original is perfection.     
    • HOLY FUCKING FUCK OF A FUCK!!! One of my favourite songs ever! How did I not know of this KILLER cover!?  I'm not familiar with the album either, I'll have to check it out.    
    • Yeah I'm not completely sold on Brand either. He is very intelligent, switched on and an excellent speaker, but I don't connect as much with him as I do others. Watch him every now and then but not subscribed as I'm not overly interested in a lot of his videos. 
    • Russell Brand goes on a bit too much about spirituality most of the time for me, and he is very slow to get to the point, compared to someone like, say the awesome Jordan Peterson. I remember when I first saw the Sarah Silverman was dong video blogs, because I thought she was pretty great and funny. And then I saw some, and now I hate her. I hate pretty much everything she says, and I even find it hard watching her movies lol
    • Randy Piper's Animal - Judgement Day. Killer track unfortunately not on youtube.  The start of the chorus says it all.   "I'm here to tell you I'm watching you, I'm watching everything you do, GOD knows, 'cause he asked me to".   Job gets it.
    • haha, just what this place has been missing. A religious thread. I don't believe in any higher power, just like I don't believe in ghosts or aliens. Show me one and I will believe, until then.... As far as mainstream religions go, they are all equally silly to me. Defining a 'god' or 'gods' and creating images on them, and worshipping them? Really? Just because you don't know? Christianity is ridiculed in Australia, because like it or not we are a Christian society. Want proof? attend parliament, and they say the lord's prayer before every sitting. Having travelled extensively around the world, I will say that Catholicism is the worst of them all. Money hungry, money grabbing religion that it. Asian religions and much more realistic. Anyway here's the thing. I DON'T KNOW I don't know how we got here. I know how we evolved. But I don't know where our consciousness came from, and I don't know where it goes, if anywhere. And I don't care, because I can't change it anyway. For me life is more about being a good person, doing right by others and living a happy life. I've said for years, the secret to life is in two parts. Stay healthy and he happy. That's it. Worship whomever you like. Doesn't affect me. You guys create some great temples and churches and I enjoy visiting them. Interestingly, even 10 or 15 years ago, not many dared to come out and admit they had no faith. These days, this is common, but rare for people to come out and say they are Christian, or whatever. Jesus was real. His life is fairly well documented. Was he the son of a god? lol If anything he was a magician of sorts. Probably a decent bloke though. Scariest thing I've seen recently was the NY mayor talking about covid and how god has chosen it and people should get immunised to serve god or whatever. Damn, I would HATE to live in a bible belt of the US. Hell, people in my country don't ever really get a flag out except for one day a year that everyone hates because it's now all about invasion etc. I've been through the US and was amazed at the amount of flags on front lawns, letterboxes, and everywhen. You guys care about your country far more than us
