What's your favorite 80's rock album/cd/tape?


Recommended Posts

Was there any good music in the 80's ?3.gif I am a product of the 60s and 70s. By the 80s I was listening to "oldies" I would agree with Max, DSOM is great. I have 5150, I picked it up at a thrift store for a buck. Not bad, some good tracks that went on to be hits. I also have 52nd street by Billey Joel. Same thing, a buck at a thrift store. I rather like it, more good tracks than 5105.

I can't go with one ties: Anything by Bob Seger, Rod stewart, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton.

No offense Ritchie's Still was the song with my ex-wife, will always be. Wonderful Tonight by E. C. could have been written by me to her as with Elton's Your Song.

Sorry mOOn, have to pull rank, I'm older.

Seger's Like A Rock CD Shows a similar, wonder what happened to time. Don't want to reunite with ex, but I'm glad for what we had, adding another song, Lady. She was.

It's hard to pick one when one goes through a lot as we all do in a decade. I don't mean to mess up your thread mOOn.

Or was Like A Rock the '90s?

Has one of the best slide solos, grabs you and takes you on a ride.

Great thread, my hat is off to you.

5150? Really? I think 5150 is by far their worst recording. Well, between David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar era.


5150 has some great songs and I think it flows good as a whole album. Not just a CD with a couple of good songs on it.

Actually, you're both wrong. It was no ticket (without the s) required. Not that I had ever heard of it until now.


I wonder if 2 were released - I have No Jacket Required.

Saw collins in Buffalo, all dark until the drums came in - wow

Ozzy/'tallica/Van Halen/Slayer/Leppard/Crue on the "hard" side have already been mentioned.

On the "softer" side were Dire Straits/Genesis/Gabriel/Collins/Yes and many more.

Pick only one CD, very hard! Almost too hard!!!

OK, I try: One of my favourites back in the 80's were the ugly hairy texas boys.

My vote:

ZZ Top - Eliminator
