I used to own "Power Metal" . I was browsing through a record store one day years ago, probably around the time "Vulgar display of power" was big and I had to do a double take when I saw it. I had to hear it, but wasn't too impressed as you can imagine and traded it soon thereafter.

I am listening to one of my homemade compilation CDs, and Kingdom Come's - Do You Like It is playing. It got me thinking of all the bands that were big in the late 80's early 90's for about 15 minutes (before Headbanger's Ball was cancelled), but would result in a "Who is that?" if they were mentioned today. Here are some others I can think of:

Britny Fox
Bang Tango
Kix
Danger Danger
Shotgun Messiah
Firehouse
Electric Boys
Gorky Park


What others? (I'm asking for the more obscure ones. Not like Warrant, Cinderella or Slaughter or bands like that).

Firehouse is hardly obscure....
They had 5 top 40 hits..maybe even 6.
Im not tryin to make an argument or anything..just stating a fact. If anything..Slaughter is a lil more obscure..

I read your post and the first thing I thought was, is this one of the members of the band chiming in?

Well, we're trying to avoid favortism in here. A lot of kids today would probably not even know who you were talking about if you mentioned Firehouse.

No, they're not obscure but they have been largely "forgotten" which is the purpose of this thread

What was Michael Bolton's metal band called, before he switched to singing "waiting room" music.

According to allmusic, "Michael Bolotin" sang for a band called Blackjack. Interesting Side Note - Bruce Kulick of KISS fame was Blackjack's guitarist...

BTW - does Discover Card's "Danger Kitty" fit into this somewhere?

They also wouldnt know Slaughter either..which was the reason for my reply..
Mention "Love of a lifetime" and Im sure just bout everyone knows it...

On another note..I will be seeing DANGER KITTY in a few weeks!
Their first east coast performance!

Yngwie Who?

I was a big fan back in the Trilogy era, but I haven't listened to much of his recent stuff.

I think my image of him was kinda shattered when I saw him for the third time at a little club here in San Antonio (the Seventh Sign tour?). He went to sling his guitar around his neck, but somehow only managed to whack himself in the head.

Somehow it just didn't seem like "the good ol' days" anymore.

I still love and listen to all the so called "80's Hair Metal".Poison's album from 2003 was excellant.Krokus just put out an new disc in Switzerland with Storace back on vocals (which i'm currently searching for).Metal is still alive.It'll always be 1989 in my mind.

Wasn't OFR actually an album from Michael Angelo's band Nitro?
