I think it’s funny how people who are more or less into the metal sound all had to wave their pricks and say that the Hair/Rock Bands of back then sucked. I liked early Metallica (especially compared to new metallica), and they set the stage for a new sound, but this isn’t about that now is it? NOPE… it’s about rockin out to Bon Jovi (80’s rock is our pregamin music, it’s that good), so please, waive elsewhere.
I group AC/DC into the 80’s Rock because I distinctly remember listening to their NEW stuff back then when I was 7 and 8 years old (that money talks video, come on, priceless)! haha… sure beat listening to Hammer and Vanilla Ice (even though I admit that they were the shit to every first and second grader back then).
We all know AC/DC might as well be considered Rock gods, look at all of their tribute bands roaming the country. I consider myself fortunate to have even seen the real deal in concert, we had some ass kickin seats about 25 feet from the stage when AC/DC went on tour about 4 and a half years ago. What a good friggin concert, even if me and my friends were the youngest people there by 15 years, the music is the shit.
Speaking of awesome concerts, I was just curious if anyone has ever seen Hairbanger’s Ball? They’re a tribute band that I saw when I was out in Chicago last January that does everything hair/Rock related. If you’re from the midwest, you gotto check’em out.
