after a long time of primarily playing punk i am deciding to look into 80s metal songs like iron maiden and van halen. Anyone know any easy hair metal songs to start out with.
...I don't understand what you mean...

You want a list of songs, or you want to know how to write one?
^Well, he's obviously asking for some song recommendations...

The Number of the best
Run To The Hills
Photograph (Def Leppard)
Any Motley Crue
Run to the Hills
The Trooper
Two Minutes to Midnight
Mother Russia
Aces High

They're all relatively easy rythem wise... solo's are nuts though.
Skid Row- 18 and Life
iron maiden- run to the hills
motley crue- too fast for love
Slaughter- up all Night
steel dragon(?)- we all die young?
Tesla- Change in the weather
Van Halen- Jamies cryin
Van Halen- Aint' talkin bout Love
White Lion- When the Children cry

"did what hurt?"
"when satan piledrived you up from hell you bitch"

Cherry Pie - Warrant
Round and Round - Ratt
Rock you like a Hurricane - Scorpions

Rock you has a very good opening solo that is fun to play and impress people (non-guitarists at least) with.
I am the Master of Puppies

Gibson Faded Flying V

Ibanez jumpstart (black)
Ibanez toneblaster (small amp)
Digitech RP80 Guitar Workstation

Anything Dokken Ratt Van Halen.. or Twisted Sister it is easy to play
Rokken With Dokken!
First 80's thing I learned was the two short solos from Running With the Devil by Van Halen. Its tricky to get the phrasing down.
We're only strays.
Van Halen - Runnin' With the Devil is super easy, and it sounds cool. Ratt - Lay it Down is also neat, as are pretty much all the songs named here.

+ lots, pretty simple song to play and sounds great

also, anything by Poison, Unskinny Bop's good and a little more challenging than the majority of their material!

Maiden is not hair metal....

Shredding is having control over your instrument and being free of technical obstacles so your music is not limited by your playing ability.

Classical Gas is when you fart and it smells like the inside of a violin. EVERYONE knows that. n00bs...
Motley Crue ...... DUH !!

Well.... Me thinks Runnin With the Devil is kinda lame compared to other VH songs....
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!
Id start playing a bit of scorpions, and Twisted Sister (I Wanna Rock is probably the easiest song of all time).
