    Here's some more 60s garage rock, I Fought the Law by The Bobby Fuller Four. This song was written by Sonny Curtis, who was a member of Buddy Holly's backing band The Crickets. A bit of trivia: Curtis wrote the theme song for the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Again, check out the dancers!

    I’m sure that everyone has missed Rebajlo’s metal... ;)

    Here’s a song from an album that was released in 1989, the year I finished high school. It is emblematic of my self-destructive, senselessly wasted youth, which - one way or another - I regret every single day.

    1989. A time when - just for a fleeting moment - the world was truly wide and almost anything seemed possible…

    The fellow who uploaded this video obviously put a Herculean effort into its composition, as it features numerous clips of high-octane automotive action from various films…

    W.A.S.P. - REBEL IN THE F.D.G.

    I'd never heard that WASP song. The first two WASP albums were pretty damn good.
    I saw them open for Iron Maiden in 1985; the band was disappointing. They were just not good musicians.

    I just drank 8 ozs of 100 proof moonshine, I can't drink the strong stuff. It made me want to hear some mountain music, so here goes.

    Beautiful powerful song. That mountain tune wasn't half bad either :beer-toast1:

    Deus Vult -

    In my opinion, the second and third W.A.S.P. albums were superb. The first album was also very good but - once again, strictly in my opinion - featured a number of “weaker” tracks (“The Flame”, “Hellion”, “On Your Knees”, “The Torture Never Stops”). I recall being completely awestruck while listening to the opening two songs of W.A.S.P.’s self-titled debut for the very first time as a thirteen-year-old kid. “I Wanna Be Somebody” and particularly “L.O.V.E. Machine” were bursting with instantly distinctive, catchy, aggressive, action-packed riffs, rhythms and solos delivered via a heavy, menacing tone that was perfectly complemented by the unique, snarling voice of Blackie Lawless. Then I heard the third track… and was assailed by a feeling of anticlimax similar to the one I experienced three years later once the intro of Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle” had concluded and the song began in earnest. Thankfully, “B.A.D.” and “School Daze” quickly reignited my initial euphoria. ;)

    “The Last Command” was one of the albums I played most frequently during my teenage years - and it remains a firm favourite to this day.

    Here's a great song by The Outlaws, Green Grass and High Tides, featuring the twin guitar attacks of Hughie Thomasson and Billy Jones.

    I've always been interested in our deeper European past. Something in this song...

    A memorable song, one of so many from the 1980s. Living through the '80s and tracing the never-ending gradualism through which unwanted change is always foisted on the country and the West, I thought the U.S. was hopelessly decadent and becoming a "1984" society -- and it was -- but given what's transpired since, the '80s are a decade many now nostalgically yearn for. America was still recognizably America for the most part at that time, especially with Ronald Reagan as the Actor/President and while Reagan was a big disappointment in many ways, much like Trump was, he was so obviously and clearly the "lesser of two evils," which is the best we get in this "democracy" in which the 99% have no influence, that it's easy to wish for the "good old days" by comparison.

    I too loved the 80's and would love to go back. There were so many types of different music and very little of the hip hop other than a handful of groups as it got closer to the 90's when that was pushed everywhere. The 80's
    also had beautiful love songs from Rock bands, Alternative Bands and even top 40/pop still had some quality to it. I especially love the rock bands from the hard songs to the love ballads. I recently have started listening to
    country alot. To me it's some of the best current music on the radio. I also like christian music and of course classic rock and roll.

    If I could go back to any time in history and live and stay there for me it's a no brainer. Even though I wasn't born yet the 1950's were the Peak of America at it's best. Once the 1960's hit it's been all down hill since. We need to
    post some good music and videos from the 1950's. For the young ones on the board please give it a chance. It's amazing music for the most part.

    This patriotic song by Aaron Lewis is currently second and third on iTune's Top Songs. (There are two versions, one edited for radio the other unedited.) Lewis is familiar to many of you as the lead singer of Staind. Slowly but surely more celebrities are speaking out against the woke communist madness destroying America. Oops, I see Booth posted it above, oh well can't hurt to hear it twice!

    Here's a very good singer from the 1950s, Gail Storm. Here she sings Dark Moon in a clip from her TV show the Gail Storm Show.

    Outstanding song!

    Here's a song by Tom Petty in a similar vein. I Won't Back Down.
