    These guys only had one promo EP in 1990. If you're lucky enough to find one it'll run you $200-$400.

  5. love sneaky EPs

    I lucked on Ratt's inaugural EP You're In Trouble and Juan Crucier sounds like an absolute turd but the rest of it is killer, and I maintain Ratt covering Walkin the Dog is the paramount achievement of RnR history

    Picked up Vyper's EP before they cut their self-titled album. Crazy that EP can rip so hard and the actual eponymous bum can suck so bad comparatively

  10. My hope for the next generation is that theirs, unlike mine, can admit to themselves that this shit sounds spectacular.

    Nothing virtuous ever came between man and appreciation of White Lion

    Oh it's vast.

    Homeboy here is doing nothing but 80s shit. Give me a few more beers and I'll update it with the worst rock of the 90s and 2000s.

  15. I think you guys have me mistaken. 80s buttrock (aka hard/glam) is excellent.

    90s and 00s is terrible and an entire other species

    i grew up on some 'glam' like poison and def leppard, and consider myself a general fan of rock, and am a huge guns n roses fan still. but what you've posted here goes beyond what ive listend to , in a variety of ways

    im not sure if there is a clear definition of 'butt rock.' i always associated it with arena rock -- like, foreigner to me was the archetype of butt rock. your idea of butt rock is more like 'really obscure glam rock.' and the ppl who associate the term with creed and nickelback, yeah idk about that either.

    Entire album is awesome and is the sole reason I got into metal.

  20. IDK about "really obscure." Tatertot posts a lot of fairly obscure stuff, but White Lion, Dokken, Kix, stuff like that's not all that obscure. But I guess compared to Leppard and Poison it might be.

    Foreigner's proto-butt. Love the 'ner

    Guns is prolly my favorite band, and they're different imo

    Slippery propelled the genre directly into everyone's face at the time. It literally saved radio from being totally taken over by dogshit like Gloria Estefan for a good 3 or 4 years.

    I couldn't disagree with you more. It does belong ahead of Look What The Cat Dragged In. I'd say it should be #1 but that Hysteria album was an absolute juggernaut although Pyromania is a far superior album from them.

  27. I can digest what your saying. I think it's significance outweighs its quality though. There are just so many 'bums on that list that are better than Slippery, but I can get on board with it being up there for the reasons you mentioned

    Criminally underrated band that was hyper-local to me back in the day.



    Used to see these guys duke it out in Battle of the Bands with Trixter and Prophet week after week. They'd rotate the winner but these guys wound up on top most nights. Trixter ultimately had the most success.

    Northern & Central NJ were a hotbed for this, the greatest genre of Rock music. A distant second to L.A. to be sure but if you were into it in the mid to late 80's early, early 90's NJ was a great place to be.

    Here's that other band mentioned in the previous post



    All these guys lived, worked and played within a few miles of my childhood home.

    I think most of those guys were from NYC (which I could see from my HS windows on a clear day) but it's funny you mention them because they stole a drummer at one point from.... Prophet.

    They played around here to be sure.

    These guys practically lived in the clubs in Central Jersey although I think they were from outside.



    (Internet says San Fran via Philly so it makes sense)
     
  34. Knew it was somewhere East.

    I, myself, am from the same home as bands such as Vixen and... just Vixen. Though I was probably 1 or 2 when vixen was actually a thing.

    LA gets enough talk as the epicenter of 80s metal. Im a bigger fan of the Cinderellas, Danger^2, White Lions and Britny Foxes of the world

    I liked Edge of a Broken Heart. Liked their short skirts more.

    I really liked Night Songs but Cinderella got a bit too bluesy for me from Long Cold Winter on. Those albums sound better to me now that I'm older.

    According to Eddie Trunk Vito Bratta is still somewhere on Staten Island. Pride was a great album but Little Fighter and Broken Heart are my jams.

    I was into the hits from Britney Fox with Long Way To Love and Save The Weak taking up more headphone time than Girls School.
     
  36. I don't know that I can name two butt 'bums from one band that can beat Pride and Big Game. Vito Bratta was incredible. It's a damn shame he fell off the edge of the earth. Little Fighter... goddamn genius tuneski

    Yeah that's why Cinderella was my entry way into hair metal. Keifer's basically a roots rocker. He's just the next outgrowth from the Stones n Skynyrd. Guy's a musical genius though. Cinderella doesn't really musically belong in the class

    I guess I'd put Night Songs and Long, Cold Winter up there with White Lion's top 2. Pyro/Hysteria (High n Dry's my favorite tho). Once Bitten/Twice Shy. Cellar/Invasion of Your Privacy. A couple of Hagar's best (VOA/Standing Hampton) as honorable mention

    I think Bratta was an incredible guitarist but I never got all the "he's gonna take over from Eddie (VH)" stuff. He's great like Reb Beach and Paul Gilbert are great but Eddie is from another galaxy (imo of course)

    If we're putting High n Dry out there I think you need to be sure you have the UK pressing with Me & My Wine. Then it might be as good as Pyromania. God Damn do I love Comin' Under Fire off Pyro! And the best song on Hysteria imo never saw a lick of play and that would be Gods of War.

    VOA is Hagar's best top to bottom. Love all the anthems on that album but the slower tunes are my favorite. Don't Make Me Wait and Two Sides of Love baby. My cousin and I wore out his copy of Hampton blasting I'll Fall In Love Again over and over. Wasn't that in Vision Quest too?

    I'm just a sucker for Ted Templeman's production I guess. His fingerprints are on a ton of shit I enjoy from that time.

    Baby's On Fire from that A side is great stuff.
     
  43. and ya know, for all the accolades, Three Lock Box just never kicked me in the taint like VOA/Hampton did
