Can you suggest some great Hard Rock from the 80's?

Asked by metadog (378points) May 5th, 2010

I am looking for suggestions. I have always been an original Van Halen fan (1984 rocked) and am looking for other tunes that would belong with them. I am looking to build a play list for the gym. Fast paced, jamming, lots of energy. Thanks!

Out of all the music I have listened to in 20 years some of it really stands the test of time. An obvious choice here is Rush. But two less obvious choices are 38 Special and White Lion. Very under appreciated in their time.

I have to vote against GNR. Way over rated.
