Wow, The 80's were awesome. To be fair I have to say the late 70's, all 80's and 90's. There were so many groups that made it thru mult. decades. ie areosmith, ozzy, etc. My favorites; GNR, Areosmith, Pearl Jam, Metalica, Ozzy, Blue Oyster Cult, Journey, Sknard, Heart, Zombie, Van Hallen, Air Supply, Motley Crue and so many more.
