    Greta Van Fleet "covering" Ozzy's Crazy Train back in 2012. This was recorded before they struck their deal with the devil, obviously.

    Not sure if many here would care for this sort of thing. I didn't think I would, but the drums, man, the fucking drums are fantastic. They've got a great feel to them after the "singer" (he's somewhat of a rapper, too) screams the song title at around 1:07. The singer's alright, but tends to focus on the message more than the music (as a DC fan, I don't care for that..). The bassist looks fucking stupid. The guitarist (pretty sure I battled this motherfucker in guitar hero 3) is alright, too, and has a very distinct sound (at least for the 90's), but nothing I could really get into. This song is all about the drums.

    ABBA made some very good catchy music. This one being one of their most rocking one. Some resemblance of Big Jack in there.

    Love this song very much. Did a lot of pogoing on it back in the days. Nice thing to know; during this gig at the Pinkpop festival, an earthquake magnitude 1 was recorded due to the masses jumping up and down at the same time.

    Great track/post Penguin. And, despite what you say, I’m sure most people on the site appreciate it as such - even if there’s a punk-fearing, denim-wearing, somewhat conservative & narrow-minded real ale bore element to the AC/DC fan base, it’s a minority element and seldom represented here;)

    Respectfully disagree about Rage - the firebrand politics was an indelible and inseparable part of what made them great.

    One of the most important bands in my life.

    The musicians also went on to form Audioslave with Chris Cornell and knocked some good stuff.

    British hiphop doesn't always convince - especially when it tries to ape American rap - but its hard to deny that this feels authentically British/London:

    I saw an ad / snippet for that... the song title "Shut up & kiss me" - how embarrassing is that? He sounds so camp he might as well bet Lionel Blair in the band to sing it live..

    Sounds pretty good (in an 80s naff way) in fairness! He's hiding in the chorus though, I guess he doesn't have the pipes for the high stuff anymore..

    I love the first Rage Against The Machine album. KILLER riffs, great groove and solid rhythm. Once you get used to the ''rapping'' instead of singing, I enjoy it a lot.

    Didn't the guy already become an embarrassment in 1987?

    I like much of the really old early Whitesnake stuff, and some of the later stuff. I have followed them for many years live. We all know that these old singers will lose much of their voice sooner or later. Coverdale had one of the greatest voices back in the day no denying. His voice on the last tour in 2018 was pretty terrible and that was no news, and he was clearly way out of shape aswell. The last thing was more alarming for me. He was always in tip top shape earlier on. He should retire this band. This new single wont do any difference. Mediocre and bland.

    Just adding to Meanstreak's post, even though I'm not mostly listening to this today. ELO has some good tunes.

    here is an often overlooked but bloody amazing solo album of Coverdale....very bluesy, but not a single filler on the album (IMHO)...with a certain Wendy Dio on backing vocals!!!



    My first ever gig as a kid was on the Slide it In tour....I was blown away (but what did I know in my teens?)...hate their later stuff though

    Great Aussie band from the 70's, 80's & 90's.... The Angels performing "I Ain't The One". They also started out on the Alberts Production label in Australia. Saw these guys live about 6 or 7 times. Awesome live band! :-)

    Yeah. This a Cambodian garage rocker from the same era, a guy called Yol Aularong:

    When I read the words 'Cambodian Garage Rock' I had to check April 1st hadn't come early! My ignorance, clearly, just read some interesting stuff on wiki. Very sad what happened to Ros S & at such a young age.

    To me it's fascinating. I lived there for a while and some time ago I looked up music from Cambodia and found out about the rock scene they had. Very interesting and, yes, traumatic past.

    Haven't yet seen, but there is one documentary: https://www.imdb.com...

    And a movie with Matt Dillon whose soundtrack has artists from that period: https://www.imdb.com...

    I saw the Killers in Hyde Park a couple of years ago and was astonished when Tears For Fears came on stage mid afternoon - such a massive band in the 80s.

    Here's another oldie but goodie that I've been listening to this evening. Too bad they went pop. Their first album is great. (Second album good too, but not old school like this stuff)

    There's something so nostalgic to me about the Beatles' first album. It really embodies that era of music for me, and I can't find anything quite like it. There's something about the entire album that I can't quite put my finger on, but I think I love the feel/memory of it more than the actual music (although the music is fantastic for the most part).

    This particular track ain't really rock, but instead a sort of pop/soul mixture.

    I was listening to this song on the radio today and it made me wonder how people can't like the Beatles. I get that they're not going to be everyone's favorite band, but some of the songs are so good. Revolver is such a great album.
