Basically, lets make a list of 80's Bands that should be allowed in this part of the forum. It can help see what is acceptable and what isn't and for people who like 80's bands it can be a way to find out more bands. I will start with a few and edit this post as more names pop up. When you suggest, make sure they are not already on the list. It is pointless to post names that are already up here.

* .38 Special
* Accept
* Alcatrazz
* Alleycat Scratch

I think that would be more suited to the Metal Forum. One of the mods able to conform on them two?

One problem I am having is considering if Thrash and the more hardcore metal of the eighties should be here, considering there is a metal forum that would go well for them. If we add the more hardcore elements of the eighties in here then we would have to add the heavier death metal acts to this. Like Possessed, Bathory, Death, and the other pioneers. I will keep them in for now but if a mod wants them removed then I will remove them. I wont add the death metal though(like Possessed)

Still sorting through the huge list .

Britny Fox. My band opened up for them in April. Fun show.
Might get to open up for Ratt as well.

Everyone has to have a soft spot for 80's hair metal, it's just human.
