To me, Modern Rock is just a blanket label when discussing post-grunge bands. Radio definitely labels bands like Foo Fighters and Green Days as modern rock. I think now it probably refers to current alternative rock music. Everything from Five Finger Death Punch to Adelitas Way to Pop Evil to Stone Sour to Anberlin to A7X to Linkin Park and on and on. It kind of all gets thrown in as modern

Thanks for translating. For a minute there, I thought Scott accidentally swallowed his own tongue.

HITS divided Kiss fans in 1989 and still today. I loved it when it came out, but sadly like Crazy Nights, it hasn't aged very well. I agree there's tons of filler, but still some great singles. I thought Crazy Nights and HITS were their two of their cheesiest, but best of the 80s.

Looking forward to this one. Kix still delivers live and with Taylor Rhodes producing, I'm hoping for something as good as Hot Wire. I love that album.

I worked for Polygram/Universal back in 1999 when Euphoria was released. They were notorious for f-ing up the rock category back then. Promises was sent to radio/media in May and the album followed on June 8th (in the States). The CD singles, if memory serves, were released the same day worldwide. I also thought the label mucked up the singles by throwing Paper Sun out there as the second s

For me, Eupohoria proved to be the last great album DL would record. I liked parts of X, but rarely revisit it as most of the songs did not resonate. Yeah and SSTSL were largely throwaways for me. Euphoria was a step back in time, but very welcomed in 1999. I still listen to those songs and appreciate what they were trying to do. Bring Hysteria into the 21st century (sort of). Great album

Hoping it's every bit as good as SIC. From the short clips I heard, it will be great!

More along the lines of modern progressive metal. Very much a departure from Sultans, which I loved. This one is heavier, less immediate. Might take several listens to get into. I'm not sold on it yet.

Been discussed here before at length, but Stone Sour's Hesitate is very AOR/melodic rock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrv6sa0PrtU Also right now, fun. sounds like a classic AOR band to these ears. Elements of Queen and pomp rock along both of their albums.

Will be my first pre-order from MR records. I've been waiting for an official release of this since the demos went up on myspace (yes, myspace) several years ago! Sounds like it will be a fun album to finally hear.

I'm still a fan. Not really gangsta rap...I think they refer to themselves as hardcore hip-hop. Enter the Wu-Tang is an all-time classic and one of the most influential albums to come out of hip-hop. Along with De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang was one of the first to incorporate jazz-elements into their music underneath the stream-of-consciousness lyrics. Smart band. We'll see

The reason hair metal was ridiculed is that back in the hey day there were plenty of bands that lyrically weren't much different than Steel Panther. SP are just having some fun with the extreme side of that. It's actually very good musically. And they are an excellent live act as well.

Some new releases from the members of Babylon A.D. this month. The first is Derek Davis' new southern rock/blues band called Moonshine. It was produced by Michael Anthony at 5150 Studios. The band definitely have that hard rock Lynryd Skynyrd sound and even sounds a bit like Aerosmith and Tesla at certain times. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/moonshine5 The other is an actual archive release

Most of theier 80s output seemed uneven to me. I loved Lick It Up, but only parts of other albums. I jumped back in with Crazy Nights and Hot in the Shade, but those are spotty too. Revenge is really their best, IMO, since the original line-up broke up. I'd take that over any of the band's 80s material or their recent comeback albums.

You would omit bubblegum pop anthems like Last Friday Night, California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Waking Up in Vegas, I Kissed a Girl, and on and on. Most of her co-writes are with Max Martin (King of boy/girl band pop) and Dr. Luke (the prince). She always throws in a "serious" song or two per album. Britney, Christina, and even P!nk do the same. Doesn't stop them from being very goo

One of my current favs. Very early 80s synth-pop. Night Sky is brilliant.

Thanks for posting this. I love TTT and rank it among Billy's finest. I thought the one-two punch of Creatures and TTT were a nice sort of comeback for him in the 90's.

Same with Van Halen and Guns. What a shame these bands can't put aside their differences for one night.

Agreed, I love it so far. Very DP/Whitesnake vibe. The singer does a good job channeling a young Coverdale. The single, Breathing, is epic.

Haven't listened yet, but sounds promising. The JC band hasn't really done much to impress me except for World Upside Down. Everything after was very average and the songs all seemed the same to me. Hope this one delivers.

Echoing what others have already said. Fantastic band and all four albums are great in their own way. I loved Handwritten and ranked it as my favorite album of 2012. They are working on new stuff that should come out later this year. Can't wait to hear it.

Sorry, I'm a fan of Bas and his music but the cover struck me as a parody of himself. I laughed when I saw it.

"because believe me, the major labels, who are in serious financial trouble right now and are only still alive due to their back catalogs of AOR music, are watching and if this tour does take off and make money, what kind of music do you think they're going to be putting their big budgets into?" Hoping to gain attention by an industry that is dying off quickly? Kind of like sitting

YES!!! That's the tune. They'd play it every now and then on a rock station in Chicago called The Blaze. Thank you x1000!

30. Song ID
Just cleaning out some old cassettes and I found a song I recorded from the radio back around 1992. No idea who it is. It's sort of a hair metal ballad with a chorus that goes "you're one step away from my heart". Anyone know this song?
