Ok good people of the intertron. I require of you assistance. I need a comprehensive list of all the best 80s rock songs that I can put on a driving play list. None of that slow shit, I'm talking something I can rock out to while people give me dirty looks from the next lane over. Popular, obscure, weird shit. I don't care.

FINE, here:

Runnin' With the Devil
Eruption
You Really Got Me
Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
Ice Cream Man

The best from Van Halen's first album. You can assume that I suggest Panama as well from my post above.

You need only one song, repeated over and over, and that song is 'Kick Out the Jams', as covered by Blue Oyster Cult.

'What?' you may say, "Blue Oyster Cult? Surely you mean MC 5!"

No. No, I do not.

As much as it may bother people, the little guitar fills at the end of the riffs in the BOC cover beat whole solos in MC 5's original. However, in the interest of fairness, the BOC version is significantly less badass, lacking the exortation 'motherfuckers' in the intro. However, what it lacks in badassery, it makes up for in rock.

Anything from the Pixies 80s catalogue - Surfer Rosa, Come on Pilgrim and Doolittle.

Question!
24th April 07, 03:47 PM
Also works.

In that case....

Slayer- All 80s albums through Seasons in the Abyss
Pre-black album Metallica
Exodus- Bonded by Blood -> Fabulous Disaster
Megadeth- All 80s albums
Bathory- From self-titled to Blood Fire Death (last 80s album)
Testament- First 2 albums
Annihilator- Alice in Hell
Judas Priest- All 80s albums
Iron Maiden- All 80s albums
Dio- Holy Diver

Well, that's all I got at the moment, might post more later- the 80s were primarily lots of thrash metal though.

MaverickZ
24th April 07, 04:51 PM
Can you list specific tracks? If there's one thing I know about albums it's that 75% of all albums sucks ass.

You can't play 80's metal and 80's rock at the same time. That's like having both a penis and a vagina. Except instead of the vagina, it's just another, smaller, penis.

Good list, though.

24th April 07, 05:04 PM
Actually I pretty much love the entire albums I mentioned above.

But since you want specific tracks, I'll list my personal favorites of each although in my opinion it's better to listen to the whole album for the 'feel' of it.

Bathory- A fine day to die, Blood fire death from the album Blood Fire Death
Slayer- Angel of Death, Raining Blood from Reign in Blood
Kill Again, At Dawn they Sleep from Hell Awaits
Antichrist, Metal Storm/Face the Slayer, Black Magic, Tormentor from Show No Mercy
Metallica- Hit the Lights, Four Horseman, Whiplash, No Remorse, Seek & Destroy from Kill 'em all.
Ride the Lightning, For Whom The Bell Tolls, Creeping Death from Ride the Lightning.
Battery, Master of Puppets, Disposable Heroes, Leper Messiah from Master of Puppets.
Blackened, ...And Justice for all, Shortest Straw, Frayed Ends of Sanity from ...And Justice for All

Testament- Over the wall, The Haunting, Alone in the Dark from the Legacy

ARRGHHHHHH TOO MANY TO LIST!

Just get the whole albums!

I second the Judas Priest.
Some popular tracks: Living After Midnight, Breakin the Law, Electric Eye, You Got Another Thing Coming

And also recommend some Twisted Sister:
Burn in Hell, We're not Going to Take It, Shoot 'Em Down, etc.

Basically anything Tipper Gore didn't like. :eatbaby:

Judas Priest is weird. During the 80's they defected to the hard rock scene and produced garbage like "Living After Midnight", "Breakin' the Law", "You've Got Another Thing Coming", "Turbo Lover", but most of those albums still have good songs on them anyway.

It's 80's rock vs 80's metal, i.e.


You can't play 80's metal and 80's rock at the same time.

As far as rock vs metal. It doesn't matter as long as it rocks long and hard. Today's ride home went from Billy Idol - Rebel Yell to Skid Row - Youth Gone Wild to Ozzie - Crazy Train, so ya know.... I'm not THAT discriminating.

Well, my beef isn't really rock vs. metal. It's fucking hair metal that's the problem. Van Halen, Motley Crue, Poison, Twisted Sister, etc. Garbage.

Although I am partial to KISS.

Here's a really easy way to know what kind of music I'm talking about. If it sounds better the more you turn it up, that's it. For example, Hotel California does NOT sound better when you turn it up (despite being a great song). Rebel Yell DOES get better the louder you play it.

frumpleswift
24th April 07, 06:05 PM
Queen: Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, etc.
BOC: Don't Fear The Reaper, Veteran of the Psychick War
Black Sabbath: Paranoid
GnR: Welcome to the Jungle, Back Off Bitch,etc.
Kansas: Carry On My Wayward Son
Metallica: Master of Puppets, Sanitarium, The Thing that Should Not Be, For Whom the Bell Tolls, etc.
Queensryche: Sign of the Times, Spreading the Disease, Empire, etc.
Ozzy Osbourne: Mama I'm Comin Home, No More Tears, etc.

Not Rock but good:
KMFDM: Juke Joint Jezebel
Rush: Subdivisions, Limelight, etc.

Weird But Fun:
Oingo Boingo: Dead Man's Party, Little Girls

(they may not all be 80's, but they should be close)

Zeppelin – Whole Lotta Love always sounds better louder
Peter Gabriel - I Don’t Remember should get you some looks when he’s wailing, Red Rain is solid Some good bassy tracks on UP too. While the Earth Sleeps w/Deep Forest should do it btw they’re singing in Mesopotamian
Pink Floyd – Dogs of War. Sorrow is slow but great. Run Like Hell
Roger Waters – Radio KAOS, a few tracks especially Powers That Be
Pink – Get this party Started is fun but obnoxious

Robert Palmer – Simply Irresistible, Bad Case of Lovin’ You
Soft Cel - Tainted Love

Robert Palmer

The Power Station (by Power Station, project of Palmer plus others) is a tight album, still great 20 years later.

Also, if you like the slightly unusual, the self-titled album by the Tom Tom Club (members of Talking Heads and King Crimson).

Notice how back in the 70's and 80's groups would release albums with eight songs and they'd all be pretty good, now pompous bastards want you to buy a double cd with 20 that mainly suck.

Rock is the Devil's music. And Knopfler is a Jew. Coincidence? I don't think so.

You could try some Manowar. Hail to England, Sign of the Hammer, Fighting the World, and Kings of Metal are great albums. The first two are kinda bleah.

I've actually been getting some Manowar on my Pandora station and I like it. I kinda dig Bonfire too. I used to listen to a bunch of stuff like Hammerfall and Blind Guardian and all of those swords and sorcery metal bands, but that got old real fast.

You definately can't take too much of it. Like I can only listen to one or two Dragonforce songs before getting bored.

Actually, if you can just get the song Kings of Metal, that would be enough. That's pure 80's cheesiness right there. It's awesome.

Bah, Bathory > Manowar although Manowar is pretty cool.

Also, why are you limiting yourself to 80s stuff only anyway?

Because apart from Death and Arch Enemy... and Carcass... the 80's had the best bands.

True, but a lot of metal genres really only started in the early 90s and beyond.

I gave the 90s a try. It all sounds the same. All of it. And most of it isn't any good. And I have a good bit of the 70s already. I have the entire Zeppelin collection, and Deep Purple, and etc etc.

WarPhalange
26th April 07, 09:51 PM
Judas Priest. Don't forget them.

Yeah, the 90's didn't have much. Rust In Peace was there, so was Countdown to Extinction. Seasons in the Abyss...

Other than that, death metal flourished, but I don't think you're into that.

MaverickZ
26th April 07, 09:56 PM
Yeah no deathmetal, thanks. I had some hall mates in college who would listen to that stuff exclusively. The fact that they are still alive is a testament to my patience.

I listen to a bunch of Judas Priest, it was pretty hit or miss with me.

Bob Dylan. "Blood On The Tracks" and "Desire". Back-to-back masterpieces.

Classic sleeper from about 1978, Dennis Wilson's "Pacific Ocean Blue."

Alice Cooper's "Muscle Of Love".

Cheap Trick "Live At Budokan".

Elvis Costello "Armed Forces" & "This Year's Model".

Dire Straits' first album kicked azz. I saw them on their first US tour after its release. Fantastic. One-hit-wonder Ian Gomm ("Hold On") opened up for them.

Hard to find, but the New York Dolls' first album rocked.

Muddy Waters great comeback album with Johnny Winters "Hard Again".

"The Last Waltz", soundtrack to The Band's documentary about their last concert.

Oh, and KISS sucked. I was there.

EDIT: Emerson, Lake, & Palmer "Works". A killer.

I didn't mean I liked all that music. I was giving you ideas to annoy people while driving. Some of it I did like. I especially liked the uber-effiminate "Culture Club." Great music, harmonies, beats, slick production.... underrated because of the lead singer's bizarreness.

EDIT: Milli Vanilli DID win a Grammy. So there. Nyah.

Well I guess if you're not into black/death metal and its various incarnations, the 90s don't really have anything then.

On Judas Priest, if you haven't already, get Painkiller, awesome speed/heavy metal. If you like thrash metal, you can also look into Overkill, Dark Angel and German thrash (although I've never listened to any of them personally so take my recommendation with a grain of salt).

And I wish I had hallmates that listend to metal (of ANY kind), rrrghhhh.

Ugh. I can't listen to it exclusively. As you've no doubt noticed, a lot of it is generic "I KILL YOU!!!!".

Same with me.

Painkiller is 1990 I believe, but like Question said, it's amazing.

I could go on...Symphony X, Live, A Perfect Circle, Soundgarden. Hell, Pearl Jam was original...but they were overplayed and overcopied all to hell.

Hell, if I listed my five favorite groups their music would span as many decades...no one decade had a monopol on good music.

The 90's were pretty rough musically. Basically, they sucked. In the 80's the music was bad, but at least it was fun, in the 90's it was bad and pretentious.

Some of 90's rap and hip hop I would exclude from the above.

The 90s would have been pretty successful for metal due to the emergence of the various black/death/crossover genres and it was until.......... Nu-metal.

80's CD's that you can drive to? Something is fucking wrong with all of you. There is already a collection just for that, though you might feel the need to speed, run over prostitutes, and unleash your flamethrower on a police officer:

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto:_Vice_City_soundtrack)

You can buy it here (http://www.amazon.com/Grand-Theft-Auto-Vice-City/dp/B00006SM6Q/ref=sr_1_1/102-4460995-9364952?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1177652392&sr=8-1) (though it's missing a couple of songs). I burned my own collection.
