For some reason, I am getting into some of the 80s music.
Give me some good stuff to listen to.
So far I've got:
AC/DC - Hells Bells <- such a good song.
You Spin me right round - dead or alive.
Glenn Frey "The Heat Is On"
I just listen to them on Youtube and buy the ones I like on Itunes. God bless the Youtube.
Some of that 80s stuff is pretty good. It holds up to todays stuff still.
Now I need my T-Bird/Camaro and mullet.

Download everything by AC/DC I love them! I love 80s and older rock, that's when it was done the best.

I'll have to check the copyright dates on my albums, but I'm pretty sure that Molly Hatchet is 80's.

The Pixies!! -- "technically" 80's, but the pixies invented the 90's.

Jon Butcher is a great 80's rocker. My favorite of his is Holy War, where he does some rather unique guitar playing.

80s music. Real 80s music. These are some bands from the "harder" end of the spectrum.
Mission of Burma
the Birthday Party
I just did a search trying to remember some band names & found a phenominal compilation:
I'd buy this, except I already own nearly all the tracks. There IS some junk here,like Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, but it is mostly great stuff.

Van Halen - 1984.
|Apr3-07, 05:27 PM||#9|
J. Geils Band- Centerfold, Freeze Frame
Greg Kihn Band-Jeopardy
Survivor- Eye of the Tiger
Might not be 80's but worth a listen:
Another One Bites the Dust,
We Will Rock You

Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Falco, kajagoogoo, and I'm probably missing some.

quiet riot - cum on feel the noise
twisted sister - we're not going to take it

falco - rock me amadeus
kajagoogoo - too shy

Dunno if it counts, but Deep Purple, black sabbath, led zepplin, white snake, def loepard, iron maiden , jimi hendrix, guns n roses, pink floyd, pearl jam, rolling stones ,acdc-born to be wild, back in black are all good.
Too many songs to name but search on limewire or something similar and the most popular results are pretty good.

Does anyone listen to trance?

One of my favorites -

Twisted Sister - I wanna rock
Men Without Hats - Pop goes the world
Falco - Vienna calling
Kajagoogoo - Never ending story
Another one commonly missed is:
The Other Ones. Everyone remembers the song Holiday but forgets We Are What We Are.
