The Bands

I’m obviously an 80’s rocker chick with a love for the greatest bands that ever graced the stage. In my opinion it was the BEST era of music. It had heart, soul, great melodies, a storyline with a beginning, middle and end. They looked amazing and had better hair than most women. I still say that a man looks the sexist with long hair. There was just something about the men that graced the pages of our favorite metal magazines with their gorgeous hair and amazing rocker clothes.

My favorite band will always and forever be Bon Jovi. I’m a Jersey girl, what can I say?! I’ve been going to see them since 1993 and I will never stop as long as they continue to tour. I even scored a ticket to go to see them get inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. That was my Superbowl! That was an amazing, emotional event for me. I cried but enjoyed every moment of it! It was so worth it!

Other bands I’m into just to name a few are as follows. I have put them in 3 categories, A Groups, B Groups and C Groups. Now this is not a rating system to whom is better than the other. My system has to do more with if you mention a band in group A, most likely everyone will know who they are. If you mention a band from Group B, you will find about 50% of people will know who you are talking about and the other 50% will not. Lastly if you mention a band from Group C, you will not find a lot of people who have never heard of them. Again this is not because of the talent, because in my opinion, they are all amazing. It is merely that the bands came too late and weren’t able to get the air play like Group A. I find group C are very rare gems that everyone should honestly give a shot. Some of my favorite bands are in group C! I’ve also added some newer bands that I enjoy and some up and coming local bands.
