    Anyone out there into the whole classic, 80s, arena rock type stuff. Music is my other passion, I'm actually the drummer of a band. We're called Crash and we're trying to bring back retro rock. If anyone wants to check out our site its www.CrashRock.com some of our influences are: Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Rolling Stones, Dokken, Cinderella, Guns N Roses, ACDC, and so on. Anyone else out there into that stuff?

    Aha! I have found my true love and her name is JEN!

    Seriously. She ticks all the boxes:

    a. She's female,
    b. She likes REAL MUSIC,
    c. She likes MA, and
    d. My wife doesn't know about her! :D

    I don't thing the record label Crash would be too happy about your name! Anyway, didn't the Darkness kinda bring 80s rock back to the limelight?

    Zeppelin and the stones are two of my favourite bands ever along with the doors and jimi hendrix experience. GNR are awesome as well, you should check out velvet revolver as well if you haven't already (most of GNR are in it along with stone temple pilots singer).

    Rock and Roll baby ... yeah!
    Actually I'm a poser :( The closest thing to rock I listen to is Linkin Park. I'm a 90's modern hip hop G. I get down wit it ...

    I'm the fella with the perpetual "oyster" charm
    "Mother of Pearl" delivery, voicing harm
    And, it's hard being the boss, G
    But I can't go to jail cause them years'll cost me
    Don't get me wrong, I'll lay sum'n down if you force me
    But I'd rather just sit back and roll a dutch
    Think of how I'll put the game in the clover clutch

    The Darkness remind me more of the 70s glam rock bands like The Sweet and Queen.
  15. Alexander

    Alexander Possibly insane.

    We are neglecting Phil Collins and Genesis. Land of Confusion and I can't dance are two of my personal favorites.
  16. LS

    LS Full Metal Jacket.

    80s anything, I like bands like breathe, tears for fears, a ha , hall & oates, the cure !!!!, r&b in the 80s was great too ; guys like troop, can't forget new edition, and when love songs had some real substance. 80s rap you had rappers delight, young mc (oh yeah) , I can go on and on about 80s music.

    I hated most arena rock music of the 80s.
    But I have a special fondness for the 'new wave' music of the early 80s in particular. Like Ultravox, Gary Numan, Japan, XTC, Lene Lovich, Bow Wow Wow, Devo, Thomas Dolby, Bauhaus, Joy Division, New Order, Echo and The Bunnymen and so so many others.

    I absolutely dispise 80s glam/arena/hair metal. Too flashy, too annoying, and their wailing sounds like their spandex is on too tight. Face it! Its a basterdized version of Rock spawned from a night with some groupies.
