Greatest Metal Albums of the 1980s
The Contenders: Page 2
After releasing Hell Bent for Leather (which ranked #2 on my 70s albums list), The Priest released a album called British Steel. It has mainstream songs like Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight, but also has songs that are underrated and awesome like Rapid Fire and The Rage. This album is great for a Priest fan like me.
Before hairspray and lipstick became a major role in hair metal their was Motley Crue. More of a metal band than hair metal at the time, the album Shout at the Devil had raw songs like Shout at the Devil and Looks That Kill, and underrated classics like Red Hot and Knock 'Em Dead, Kid, this would be their last before going hair metal.V 1 Comment
It's where Chris Jericho got his name from.
The late '80s was more about hair metal than any other genres, and definitely Leppard's Hysteria was one of the most successful and best. Tracks like Love Bites and Animal going towards the pop side than what was on Pyromania. But, just because it's more hair metal doesn't mean it's bad. It's really damn good.V 1 Comment
This isn't an album. It's a song.
