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.Read more ›
I purchased at full price.
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.Read more ›
