No Saxon?

I like Saxon especially the Denim & Leather album

yep, I have their discography, I don't really listen to it much any more, but they are a pretty cool band, I really like "Princess of the Night"
I cover Denim and Leather in bands if they want to do the "hard rock" thing, never had one of those bands work out, but hey, we played the song:heheh:

I see you are busy today Bucky, I can't do it buddy, I have too many songs I like to break it down into a list.

Eberg, I have all of Saxon's albums, and if you haven't played their last two you should, they are a throwback to the glory days of the band.

Diamond Head, nice to see another fan but I only have Lightning to the Nations, I think it's their best recording.

Yeah, I'm sure I've listened to the last two, probably after my taste changed a bit, I used to be a classic metal head, well, a nice mix of classic metal and punk, my life was ruled by ramones and maidens in seventh and eighth grade:heheh: I believe the album, Strong Arm Of the Law, also influenced me quite a bit lol, good and bad thing......
I only have a handful of songs From Diamond Head, I'm not even sure what albums they are from, I'd have to go back into my itunes on my other computer to find my favorite, I'll do it sometime if I remember though:grinthumb

Nice list, Bucky. I would have a hard time making a list like this, because as soon as I had the list done, I would find another song I want on the list.

I would replace at least one of your Iron Maiden songs with "Hallowed Be Thy Name", then put "Run to the Hills" a close second behind it :D "War Pigs" would rank high on my list along with "Sabbath ****** Sabbath". Somewhere in my list I would add "Angel of Death" by Slayer.

It would be a tough list to make, and would probably change tomorrow, after I had time to go back and rethink the list.
