it's not a metal list or a pop metal list because hard rock music for me it's Led Zeppelin,ZZ Top, Cream,The Cult,Loverboy etc. some rock band can do sometime's a hard rock song's like The Bangles with Hazy shade of winter or like Elton John in the 70's with Saturday's alright for fighting even if they are a rock band and those song's can be considered as hard rock song for my list .

I love songs from the 80's, they rule! And, I'm a huge, HUGE fan of Queen! I went to the concert of their cover band (God Save the Queen) and I was AMAZED!

Uhm...nice list...but : :-))))

Dawn Patrol is one of the AOR masterpiece...even NR are a really good band even on stage.

I love Kelly Hansen...but Foreigner 4 the #1 of all AOR albums (shut up Journey's fan...) was sung by Lou Gramm, change the photo plizzzz...
In '81 Jeff Pilson wasn't in Dokken...Jeff is a cool dude but in that pic seems a korean tourist at Niagara...

I saw Loverboy live on GMAmerica Oct 31st...they simply kick my ass with Working For The Weekend...they still rock...hard !!

Love Removal Machine closed any Cult gigs since '88...before was Rain...
Cult a british band with canadian singer...

So...this seems a playlist for the 401 highway...are you from Ontario ???

Now I'm listening to Big Money...
Hail 2 Rush !!!

@ mass. patriot... you know what in the early 80's there was more some great modern hard rock band coming out from Canada then the States... Toronto, Headpins, Chiliwack,Harlequin, Streetheart, Aldo Nova, Saga, Triumph, Rush ,Loverboy & April Wine were all some great bands. those song's are simply some of my best song ever and i didn't realized that there was so much Canadian songs on it (lol) but it's not surprising to see on this April Wine, Rush,Triumph & Loverboy who are some of my favorite bands. this is one of my oldest list and i'm wondering why i didn't do a top 50 instead of top 25 because i forgot some great song's like Queen Of The Broken Heart, Daddy Don't Know (Toronto) Running Wild ( Headpins) Trouble (Streetheart) Heat Of The Moment (Asia) Got Me Under Pressure, Any Way You Want It and many more. Foreigner 4, Asia - 1st album, Rush - Moving Picture's, Pat Benatar - Crimes Of Passion had all some huge hits 80,81&82 and they are some of the best album of all time.

Yeah I know...I was there !!! ;-)
In Europe we had NWoBHM, so after B'ham Newcastle was the new metal city. But after Venom's "Black Metal" I've lost interest on NeAt records and I've started listening to canadian bands such as Fist, Headpins, White Sister, Triumph, Loverboy...and later Kansas, Journey, Foreigner until the Hair Metal overhelmed my lil' teen brain...

@ Mass. patriot... in the early 80's (80,81&82) it was the Canadian Modern Hard bands era, in Europe it was the heavy metal bands era Iron Maiden,Accept,Def Leppard,Judas Priest,Scorpions,Dio, Ozzy Osbourne & Black Sabbath with Ronnie and after in 83,84,85,86&87 it was the American Trash Metal era with Metallica,Slayer,Anthrax,Exodus,Testament & Metal Church. Kansas, Journey,Foreigner,Led Zeppelin,Cream, Pink Floyd,Yes,The Rolling Stones,Jimi Hendrix & Genesis were the bands i was listening in my Hippie Days (lol) in the late 70's.
