They better be playing my band, Berlin, doing such songs as "The Metro" and "Sex...", or it isn't the '80's! Or how about "Masquerade"?

Tonight is 90s night..ummmm...

Killing Me Softly by the Fugees? Mr. Jones by Counting Crows? Madonna's Vogue? Probably some Ace Of Base.

I guess we'll see.

My head is always banging the morning after a night at Tacklebox, but I guess that's not what you rockers mean.

SimonB,
as I recall, those are groups from the '90s, although a few were nightclub acts in the late 80s. Metalica is an exception, they were recording in the mid-80s, I think. Maybe you could sponsor a 90s night someplace like Pedro's? I think that Jägermeister is the proper vintage to be served with your Mötley Crüe.

I'm with you regarding the easy listening side of the 1980s. I was ready to jump off a bridge if I heard Michael Jackson one more time. And the boy bands? I couldn't turn on the radio, terrified that I'd hear something like Tears for Fears. Yikes! Awful!

I ended up learning a lot about 1960s & 70s music during the 80s, since so few of the popular acts were compatable with my "tastes". I've always liked rock, and I explored the origins of hard rock during those days. Also, the blues backround that I was first exposed to while listening to artists such as Eric Clapton, Johnny Winters and the early Led Zepplin albums lead me to spend some quality time with, for example, B.B. King and Junior Wells. When new blues acts like Stevie Ray Vaughn hit the airwaves, I decided that there was hope for the human race, after all. I also looked into the Folk Movement, Bluegrass and Country Rock. I had always been a fan of James Taylor and the Allman Brothers Band, so expanding on those early influences kept me sane, more or less, during the musical wastland that was the 80s.

The 80s had a surprising club scene, once you got past the multitude of generic acts paying Journey and Boston covers. Those were the days of wine and spandex, as the disco days faded into the hair band era. The LA club scene was healthy, Austin was getting national attention and New York had its punk-new wave clubs like CBGB.

For better or worse, the 80s will always be remembered for the more commercial acts that were heavily promoted in that decade, but let's not forget the important countercurrents. Metal, for example, had its roots in the earlier hard rock acts like Black Sabbath. Some of the hair bands have roots in the Glam Movement, for example, bands like T Rex.

My point is, let's do a hard corps rock night somewhere and get loud and proud. I'm all in.

Dan

Oh to see any of those bands in a small club! I did manage to see Jerry Cantrell in a small club (Alice In Chains pre Layne's death) just before I came down here (in the pit front row.)

I have a very eclectic taste in music and I was a total "waver" in the 80's so I do love the 80's music but please can't some bar come up with a head banger night. There are more than a few people here who belong to the Black T-shirt Society.
