please. the entire metal revolution of the 80s owes everything to Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot. they made metal accessible to the masses the way Nirvana made counter cultural angst matter. they murdered barriers and Snider personally fought Tipper Gore. Kiss veered from everything they aspired to be in the 80s; they fought nothing but lead guitar players and relevance. I say this shithoused as a fan of both bands. One preceeded the other, and each helped create a new musical culture. We're Not Gonna Take It is Rock & Roll All Nite is Smells Like Teen Spirit is My Generation. Etc. Touchstone songs of youth uprisings. Paul is just mad he couldn't influence two straight decades. Props to TS for taking the torch in '84.

Gish is amazing, but still kind of rough around the edges. Siamese Dream is an absolutely perfect album from top to bottom, for any band in any genre.

as another 42 year-old, '83 was the year ZZ Top went full on synth and Spandau Ballet spawned PM Dawn. so, let's not get too crazy here.

there has never been a reason to have this much hate towards REO Speedwagon, and i'm old enough to have lived through them. i suggest moderate breathing exercises and some relaxing 80s soft rock to get you through this. i think i have a band in mind...

I might Blow Out My Iron Lung Just thinking about how a lot of older material was left High And Dry. Stop Whispering about the older stuff, because even though you believe in your Bones that Anyone can Play Guitar, they can and actually used to on their albums. I'll now go Sulk in the corner at the Maquiladora where I work, since this is killing my Street Spirit and I should probably (Fade Out).

i really think having read 1984 before the age of 22 should be a prerequisite for commenting on things involving 1984.
