Default Re: 80s metal band suggestions?

Motley Crue
Iron Maiden
Bon Jovi
Slayer (never liked 'em but lots did and still do)
Vow Wow.

This list could go on and on!

Obviously some of them get a lot of respect drum wise though!

I love '80s Butt Rock. I would add Motorhead, Van Halen, Quiet Riot, Bitches Sin, Tit Wrench, Queensryche, Fates Warning, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Venom, Mercyful Fate. Ratt, Y&T and Michael Schenker Group.
