Any 2000-2010 bands that sound like 80s Hard Rock?

    The other thread about bands with a 60s/70s rock sound got me wondering about new bands that have the 80s rock sound? And not really the Top 40
    stuff like Hall and Oats but more along the lines of Dokken, Extreme or Krokus.

    It seems like the majority of that stuff is coming out of Sweden and Germany, these days but I'll take it. Frontiers Records seems to be carrying a lot of guys with that sound, and so it's showing up here in the United States. It's just that I'll go to sites like CD Baby and go through the 80s category and run across everything but what I'm looking for. I DID hear this one really great group in 2006 from Oklahoma named Megatron that's like Pat Benatar meets White Lion, but that was about it.

    I'd be curious/interested in any podcasts, Internet radio stations or blogs that showcase these kinds of new bands, too.

    Great bands b.o.b ! I never got into nu-metal where they have to shout like kids lol. These bands blow them to pieces !!
    So bands like this need our encouragement. I know about WOLF :bow: They are brilliantly heavy i NEED their albums...love them to come to UK.
    One of my faves HARDCORE SUPERSTAR from Sweden.......unfortunately my thread about them fell on deaf ears :wa

    While I think The Darkness are superior, Hot Leg is much more 80's:
