what is your favorite 80's big hair band or rock band?

I grew up listening to all the greats the from zepplin to slayer I was a big motley crue fan and still have all their cds .

My favorite group had to be motley crue


So I ask if you were growing up in the 80's what was your favorite group.

rock music was a contest of talent and imagination ,not an american Idol contest or how many times you can say the n word.

I thought I could respond to this quickly - but the more I think about it the more bands come to mind, so here goes categorized and ordered
80s
1. Metallica
2. Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Slayer, GnR, VH, Tesla, Ozzy (solo), Suicidal Tendencies, Crue, AC/DC, even Bon Jovi
90s
1. Tool, Soundgarden
2. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Korn
Heavier
1. Slayer
2. Pantera, Testament
Rock
1. Rolling Stones
2. Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray
Sorry, I like 'em all. I've probably forgotten some.

Good news is now it's 2007, less than 2 years until the Camaro will be out.

During the timeframe Skid Row was my favorite band.

Since then I still listen to a lot of music from that era but Iron Maiden and Megadeth have definitely become my 2 favorite bands of all-time.

I was gonna say. the WMCC members haven't posted here in like a year+ or so.

As for me I didn't listen to rock in the 80's. only the past 10 years have I started listening to rock. All the rock stations here in the bay would play whiny bands like incubus and sum 41. I didn't really get into rock until I heard Tech N9ne. Beautiful blend of Rock, Drums and Bass, and Hip Hop.

Brett's show on VH1 cracks me up, my wife and I watch it every week. They must search for the dumbest women on the planet to be on that show.

Agreed.
The best episode so far was last season when the band (my bro and friends) got the chicks completely wasted and one of them started puking at dinner with Bret.

Dumb but damn funny.
