    Wow, nice post there man.

    Def Leppard is the best, and I'd just like to say that Whitesnake and Poison suck! A fat one!!

    Wasn't some of the Twisted Sister produced by Pete Way?

    UFO had some good stuff in the 80s.

    Waysted also ROCKED in my book. Didn't actually care for Iron Maiden in the 80s but I like them all right now.

    I liked Whitesnakes Ready and Willing a lot better then the 87 multi million seller that I was disapointed upon hearing.

    Saxon is another band that has grown on me.

    well i think its damn conclusive that its maiden. although whats with all this metallica crap?
    although taking maiden out of the picture for a second, its got to be guns n roses, with a bit of judas priest coming in a close second...
