Format: Audio CD
This is a terrific collection of metal songs that dominated the the music scene from 1983 through 1991. The era of pop-metal has been highly underrated in its place in rock history. Much of the best material from amny of the top artists are here. Some songs like the hard to finds "Turn Up The Radio" by Autograph and "The Final Countdown" by Europe are graciously included as are the huge and most memorable hits, Quiet Riot's "Cum On Feel The Noise" Great White's "Once Bitten Twice Shy" Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn", Whitesnakes "Here I Go Again", "Cult Of Personality" by Living Colour, along with only slightly smaller hits including, Winger's "Seventeen", Cinderella's "Nobody's Fool", Ratt's "Round And Round" and Night Rangers underrated epic ballad "Sister Christian". They even highlight some of the genras founding fathers like Alice Cooper and Judas Priest. The only real foul-upss are in the form of Warrant deplorible top ten smash "Cherry Pie" and "Hold On Loosely" by 38 Special, which is an excellent song but also has no purpose on an album devoted to 80's metal and hair bands, not southern rock! MONSTERS OF ROCK isn't perfect ofcourse, but as perfect as it could be with the limited ability a company like Razor & Tie has with sighning top artists. By no means can a perfect 80's collection be made without missing its biggest stars like Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Guns N' Roses, major non commercial acts like Metallica and AC/DC, perhaps a take from those worn out veterans used to be known as Aerosmith, and ofcourse the decades biggest star, VAN HALEN.

Man ain't it a shame that you don't get to hear half of those songs on the radio anymore, man music these days don't even have the magic like music from those days did, this Cd has everything from heavy metal anthems, power ballads and classic rock and this CD is a must for music lovers with an open mind.
Quiet Riot: Cum on Feel the Noize
This song is a cover hit from Slade who scored a #1 hit in England with that song and this was Quiet Riot's biggest hit reaching #5 and that's how the heavy metal/rock became a revolution throughout the 1980's, great song to party with. 5/5
Great White: Once Bitten Twice Shy
Another cover hit which was originally done by Ian Hunter in 1975 and the song became Great White's biggest hit also reaching #5 on the charts. 4/5
Alice Cooper: Poison
Alice Cooper made a huge comeback in 1989 with a monster Top 10 hit with this song and it was the very first song I've ever heard by the wonderful Alice, I had no idea that he was huge back in the early 1970's. 5/5
Europe: The Final Countdown
Europe had a Top 10 hit with this song and although they are a metal band, but they do a great job making music for the pop oriented fans and this song gives alot of good memories. 5/5
Ratt: Round and Round
Ratt was the prime for those 80's metal bands and they scored a Top 15 hit in 1984 with this song and it was a huge hit with MTV (back when MTV played nothing but videos). 5/5
Warrant: Cherry Pie
I think that Warrant is one of the most talented bands of all time cause they have a variety range of music from power ballads, metal anthems and mid tempo rock songs.

This is a really great cd. Every song on this CD is good. That's the thing about older rock music. Its mostly all good. This CD has 16 tracks on it. I haven't heard most of these songs in a long time but now I can listen to them whenever I want. Rock music is one of my favorite kinds of music so this CD is one of my favorites of course! Well worth getting!
I purchased at full price.

Back in the late 90's they promoted this album ALL THE TIME while I was watching WWE wrestling (called WWF back then). It eventually got to the point where I simply HAD to buy the thing to see what the big deal was.

Unfortunately, while it was really appealing to me at first, it really began to lose its charm as the years past, as I began to find out the hit songs weren't the ONLY things these bands should be remembered for. In fact, these songs seriously aren't as good as many of the songs you'd find on any one of the Ratt, Quiet Riot, or Poison albums. Why should we remember *just* the hits? We shouldn't.

Furthermore, artists like Alice Cooper and Judas Priest shouldn't be on here in the first place, because they're mostly early to mid 70's rock artists, and this collection of tracks should mainly focus on the 80's, and NO other decade because the two decades are entirely different from each other. It doesn't matter to me if these songs are not from the 70's- Alice Cooper and Judas Priest are artists from the 70's, and that's the point.

I think they could have found a better selection of songs to stick on here. "Round and Round" is NOT the best Ratt song, and "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" is not the best Poison song either. Not only are these NOT the best songs, but they also don't quality as the heaviest songs from either band either. The same applies to Great White and Whitesnake (though no one can deny "Here I Go Again" is a fantastic song- even people who normally hate heavy metal agree it's a great song).

"Hold on Loosely" is a pretty bad song though. .38 Special is MUCH better than that. "We're Not Gonna Take It" kind of stinks as well.
