what i mean is this, an album that is famous for 1 song, but isn't the best by far : my example is...

Black Sabbath - Paranoid (War Pigs, Electric Funeral & Faies Wear Boots) head banger

Hawkwind - Dream Machine

Lemmy was the only guy who could deliver this song.... he then started MotorHead!!!!

Hence why Hawkwind have not had a hit record since

THE ACE OF SPADES!!!!head banger

Dknew: Europe: The Final Countdown


I saw the 'Final Countdown' Tour, Manchester, England 1985... I think

That was the opening song.... I remember it took ages for the band to come on stage... the opening riff's went on for ages

It was awesome... good call

Sabbath only pioneered the way for every thrash metal band! You gotta remember when it was done, nothing like it at the time!

some hidden rock gems
Badlands- the vocals are great and the guitarplaying is great too. Makes you wonder why Ozzy got rid of Jake . No offense but Zakks good but not like Jake or Randy.
Blue Murder - another hidden gem. What was Coverdale thinking about letting John Sykes leaving.
Lynch Mob- George at his finest.
Molly Hatchett: The best Southern rock band musically wise - yes

pounding drums with along with a brutal bass rumble, crunching guitars and no twiddly-twiddly guitar m**turbation

basically, any music that feels like it's capable of pounding your head into the ground!head banger

There is more than pounding drums, brutal bass ,and crunching guitars, and pounding your head to the ground in rock music.

My Cal. band is already sold out for next weekend gig.. We are a bunch of rockers from the 80's metal years that toured and had some success.
