Hey guys, I recently made that 80s hair metal thread that you may have already seen, but if not, I'm trying to raise awareness of a scene and genre that is far from dead. Bands like Motley Crue and Guns N' Roses, while still around, are shells of their former selves, but in places like Scandinavia that raunchy rock n' roll sound is still extremely alive. Hell, Europe as a whole is fairly behind the times with current music trends, and for me, that's a good thing. If you haven't heard of them yet, I strongly suggest checking out the following groups which I can almost guarantee you'll enjoy if you like bands like Guns N' Roses, Crue, LA Guns, Skid Row, Ratt, Faster Pussycat etc. etc. -Crazy Lixx -Crashdiet -Gemini Five -Santa Cruz -Babylon Bombs -and many many more My friends know that listening to this type of music is a major passion of mine. (It's probably only second to playing/watching hockey). As a hobby I created a facebook page yesterday to help spread the word about some of the bands that people in Canada never know of unless they take time to scour youtube and other internet resources. Mainstream music media may have forgotten about this fun time in music history, but it is alive and well in a lot of places around the world. Here's my page: https://www.facebook.com/SleazeFactory Much like CDC, it's an online community meant for outside participation. It's time to spread the word about FUN rock n' roll music!
