    Actually, AC/DC are the only ones that REALLY matter. big_smile
    On a side note, I'm a Bryan Adams fan, but I gotta admit, I was surprised to see him on your list. You don't seem like a Bryan Adams kinda guy. And I tried really hard to find someone on your list to rag on, but I couldn't find anybody.

    Bryan Adams is an abomination!  But way way back in the day when he did "THIS TIME everything is alright. No way she's gonna get away.."  He pretty much got me for life.  I loved the Cuts Like a Knife album as a 10 year old.

    There are quite a few you could rag on though...

    I really don't care for
    AEROSMITH (once they got sober)
    PAT BENATAR ( INVINCIBLE from "The Legend of Billie Jean" - another childhood fav)
    BLIND MELON (did they really MATTER?)
    DAVE CLARK FIVE (eeesh!)
    THE HIVES & the killers.... (matter? NAH!)

    I was basically going with the motif of GOOD BAND - okay band - GOOD BAND - etc.
