Whoa Bam!!! [smilie=icon_eek.gif] [smilie=icon_eek.gif] [smilie=icon_eek.gif] Angry indeed!! [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif]

Well, I guess I was thinking more along the lines of hair metal, but sure, feel free to post anything!

DH, I know most of those, except Hurricane and Atomic Playboy and that Queensryche song. Those are all cool, too...I only have a few Queensryche tunes, but I think I'm going to have to add that one!

All She Wrote is a favorite of mine, too...another good tune by Firehouse is Reach For The Sky

Hardline - Takin' Me Down

Triumph - Never Say Never...this is one of my favorite bands from the 80s, and most of their stuff is well known, but this last album before Rick Emmit left didn't get much notice...the whole album is pretty decent IMO.

Awesome stuff!! [smilie=headbang.gif] (Even if a couple of them are pushing the 80's thing a bit [smilie=icon_razz.gif] ) Those are some of my favorite bands! Have even shared a stage with a couple of them. It's funny- I didn't care much for Jackyl back in the day, but I've grown to really love them as time goes on. Their stuff has some really awesome licks and grooves that I dig a lot. They're playing here a week from today, but sadly I'll be working and can't go. [smilie=icon_cry.gif]

IMHO, Headless Cross is by far the most underrated Black Sabbath album. I'd put it on the top 5, because of the outstanding and wicked compositions and riffs, great vocal work by Toni Martin and one of the best collection of solos you can find. One of the tracks I like more:
