    I'm not sure what people mean about haevy metal. I see people say Guns N Roses and Kiss. For me Kiss and Guns N Roses are hardrock.

    But my favorite heavy metall band of the 80's must be Rainbow or Whitesnake (I'm not to sure about these two either, but they have inspired alot of heavy metal bands, so...).

    Have to go with Iron Maiden.

    Judas Priest
    Saxon
    Van Halen
    UFO

    I know they have roots in the 70's but were very big in the 80's as well.
