The list author says: "I am an avid fan of all things late 80's and early 90's hard rock, I hope after you read my list, you will be as well. These are some of the best albums ever recorded, and I believe rock 'n' rolls greatest day!!!"
"My absolute favorite album of the 80's. This album has all the ingredients of hair-metal masterpiece, catchy sing-along choruses, great riffs, and a monster power ballad. The best tracks are, Look But You Can't Touch, Your Mama Don't Dance, Fallin' Angel, Every Rose Has It's Thorn, Nothin' But A Good Time and Love On The Rocks!"
"This is clearly Bon Jovi's best cd, New Jersey was good, but Slippery is the best. The best tracks are Raise Your Hands, Livin' On A Prayer, You Give Love A Bad Name, Wanted Dead Or Alive and Wild In The Streets."
"Blue Tears are a band that most people have never heard of, unless your like some of us who eat up anything melodic rock. This band should have been monsters, but instead they're relatively unknown. The albums best songs are Innocent Kiss, Rockin' With The Radio, Racin' With The Moon, Kiss Me Goodbye and Thunder In The Night."
"Dokken hit their stride right as they were falling apart, go figure right? This is an awesome album the whole way through, no filler, just killer 80's metal! The best tracks are Kiss Of Death, Prisoner, Burning Like A Flame, Heaven Sent and Dream Warriors."
"Skid Row at their creative peak, this album rocks hard, but never loses it's sense of melody. The best songs are, Monkey Business, Riot Act, Slave To The Grind, The Threat, Wasted Time, Creepshow and Livin' On A Chaingang."
"One of the greatest hard rock records of all time. This album is killer, it rocks hard and never lets up. The greatest tracks are Kickstart My Heart, S.O.S., Dr. Feelgood, Rattlesnake Shake, Without You and Girl Don't Go Away Mad."
"Greatest debut album ever! This is Guns debut, and sadly their shining hour, they never reached these heights again. Best Songs are Out To Get Me, Paradise City, Mr. Brownstone, Welcome To The Jungle, Rocket Queen and Sweet Child O Mine."
"Wildside is another amazing band that never got it's shot, they came along at the tail-end of the era, and were never able to sustain any steam. The albums best songs are, Hang On Lucy, Hair Of The Dog, Looks Like Love, Just Another Night, Heart-N-Soul, Clock Strikes 12 and Kiss This Love Goodbye."
"White Lion released three albums during their heyday, and all three are amazing, but Pride is the best. The best tracks are, Lonely Nights, Don't Give Up, Hungry, Tell Me, Sweet Little Loving, Wait and When The Children Cry."
"Everyone knows this album and loves it as well. Def Leppard embodied everything about the 80's, and that's what made them awesome. Great album the whole way throught, but my favorite songs are, Don't Shoot Shotgun, Animal, Armageddon It, Pour Some Sugar on Me and Love Bites."
"Jeff Scott Soto is the whole reason to buy this album, his voice is amazing on here. Eyes are another band that should have had monster success in the day, but again, they never reached that high. The best songs are, Midnight, Calling All Girls, Young And Innocent and Every Single Minute."
"Spread Eagle follow more in the vein of Skid Row than Poison or Bon Jovi, which is not a bad thing at all in my opinion. These guys were awesome, and their best tracks are, Switchblade Serenade, Broken City, Scratch Like A Cat, Hot Sex and Back On The Bitch."
"One of the biggest selling albums ever, kinda makes you wonder why huh?? Well, that's because it's a great record, and the best songs are Still Of The Night, Here We Go Again, Give Me All Your Love and Bad Boys."
"LA Guns last good album, sure they made more, but this is the last one that sticks to what brought them to the party. Best songs are, Some Lie 4 Love, Here It Comes, Kiss My Love Goodbye and Crystal Eyes."
"These guys were awesome, they just happened to release their debut after grunge killed party-rock music for good. The album is killer, and the best songs are, Satisfy Me, Simple Man, Moonshine and Don't Ya Know You Need It."
"Great rock album that's criminally underrated. This was their first record without Dizzy Dean Davidson, and they showed no signs of slowing down. The best songs are, Six Guns Loaded, Lonely Too Long, Louder and Shot From My Gun."
"Great album by a great band. These guys were'nt your typical hair-metal band, they were kind of country-fried rock. The albums strongest tracks are, Rockin' Is My Business, Nobody Said It Was Easy, Wanted Man and Can't Stop Rockin'."
"Another great album that never had a chance due to grunge sweeping it under the rug. This album rocks hard, and should have been a big seller. The best songs are, The Law Is Mine, Hard-Luck Champions, Promise The Moon, Loser, Pissed and Paintrain."
"Great melodies, good riffs, and really corny lyrics. These guys are what I call the poor man's Bon Jovi. The best songs are, Don't Blame It On Love, Monkey Business, Crazy Nights and Everybody Wants Some."
