    "Kick out the jams motherfu....!" well, I guess you know who my vote goes for. Not a fan of the panthers but that guy had brilliant energy.

    EDIT

    Oh shit! I just realized this is an 80s question. That's hard for me since I could pretty much put most of that decade on fast forward and not feel like I missed anything other than a few nwobhm bands.

    I don't know, Murray Attaway or Paul Dianno?

    I'm basing this mostly on one concert DVD I have but I'm going to put in a good word for Tom Keifer from Cinderella.

    He's not only singing but playing the heck out of various guitars, and also piano and saxophone - all in the same show! I'm thinking, OMGoodness this guy is the Energizer Bunny personified!

    Curt Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets was jumpy and runny and stuffs. (awesome adjectives, no?) also Kim Deal of the pixes (not the frontman, but still iconic) did a lot of the headbang bass we see in 90s, 2000s and 2010s. bass headbang, not lead guitar/lead vocals screaming head-throb like in metal and pseudo-modern-punk groups. (Pseudo modern punk meaning/being bands that claim to be influenced by 80s and 90s punk music yet only play generic metallica and Judas Priest knock-offs.
    Also, Zach de la Rocha of RATM. He got really into Killing in the Name. In concert i mean :D

    I thought of Jon Bon Jovi. He still has a great voice and can still run around the stage while playing various guitars and maracas.
