Yeah, kind of.

They have a couple hits, and they practically started that huge wave of hair metal bands coming out of L.A.

Maybe not.

one hit wonder? are you ****ing insane?! Armored Saint, Manowar(cheesy as they are) still have a big power metal following, and Savatage is arguably one of the best metal bands ever, and have been commercially successful as well. King Diamond was and will be an icon forever. Marillion is probably one of the best and enduring prog rock bands post Floyd's art rock and Yes' prog.
and Metal Church was one of the better thrash bands to come out in the 80s.

Those bands are still big in Europe,they still tour and create huge crowds there but not here,hell I went to a Dokken and L.A Guns here in 03' and there was maybe 200 people there total,they used to sell out they don't anymore,those bands have an underground following,and most of them only had maybe 1 song played on the radio or Headbangers Ball,I agree with you they are excellent bands,but they were no mainstream 80's bands with huge multiple hits.

Everytime I go into the guitar shop and ask for a G-String the shopkeeper always makes that TERRIBLE joke about it not being an underwear shop

So next time I go in I'm gonna ask for a thong

^ They're actually pretty popular over here, and I just saw them in concert last year
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Well, you'd be lucky to find anyone who's even heard of them over here too...

But that doesn't mean they aren't kinda popular

It's not like they're on tv or something.

how come no one has mentioned Survivor? (and the award for most ironic band name goes to...)
Ever wonder what rock would have sounded like in 2010 if grunge hadn't made it cool to be stupid?
