Re: I think 80's Metal may be making a come back

80's had good music and that's about it. Vehicle were junk, everything else was pretty much junk as well. Especially the clothing styles.

I'd love to see guitar focused music come back to the forefront. I really couldn't care less to see a bunch of guys trying to dress, look and act like women. That was the reason for 80's metal dying. Not so much the music, just everyone got tired of the butt rock look. I'm glad I was young during the 80's and didn't get into it.

I used to laugh at the interview of Vince Neil where he says, "we may wear make up but we'll still kick your ass." Really?? You guys couldn't beat your way out of a wet paper bag let alone throw someone an ass beating. If they weren't strung out, they were drunk out of their minds. I've watched junkies and drunks try to fight, yeah there isn't much of a fight that happens.

Back then we thought it looked cool... but when we look back it looked stupid. Same thing will happen in another 20 - 25 years... we think we look cool now but when we look back we'll think we looked stupid. Bringing it all back will have a modern flare and we'll think it looks cool.
