I agree with you on appetite wingz.

Shout At the Devil!

Motley brought back the shock rock factor into the 80's that made Cooper so good.

It is very tempting to end this quite nicely and just run off all of the big fours albums but I wont because that will ruin it.

Megadeth - peace sells

1986 was a brilliant year.

Peace sells, Reign in blood, Master of Puppets, Obsessed by Cruelty…what a year for music.

I’d kill her and put the world out of it’s misty if I were you. Mine’s not too much better, she listens to horrid moden music (pop crap), White Zombie is her good band, and they're only decent. Laugh

The really, really sickening part is when I tried to show her the errors of her way and divert her to real music she went ahead and bought Megadeth’s risk! 😯 Honestly, who listens to that crap? Risk for god sake. That’s not music, that’s just crap. I don’t mind Megadeth but that is a really shit album.

Iron Maiden re-invented the idea of shredding.

😆 Now theres a suprise, Lash coming out for metalica! 😆

I thought Nirvana had some good songs. They were different. Not my favorite but.

I would say Motley Crue was a good 80's band. as well as faster pussy cat, Cinderella, Ratt, Poison, Judas Priest, Slaughter,Quiet Riot. It can go on and on. Like I said too many good bands in the 80's. They all rocked!

If it were raining hookers, I'd get hit by a fag.

The end to a great era. Make your move, peasant. 😉

Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

AC/DC ..... BACK IN BLACK.

verses

Guns N’ Roses .... appetite for destruction.

Back in Black contains some of AC/DC's biggest hits, including "Hells Bells", "You Shook Me All Night Long", and the title track "Back in Black." According to Angus Young the album's all-black cover was a "sign of mourning" for Scott, as black is the traditional Western colour of mourning. It is AC/DC's best selling album, the second best-selling album of all time, and the biggest selling album by any band, with more than 49 million copies sold worldwide

In 2006 Back in Black was certified by the Recording Industry Association of America as the fifth best-selling album in the United States, with 22 million copies sold in the USA alone.

Now, compare back in black with appetite for destruction.

Back in Black - with more than 49 million copies sold worldwide.
& with 22 million copies sold in the USA alone.

It sold an estimated 49 million copies to date, making it second only to Michael Jackson's Thriller as the best-selling album of all-time as well as the best selling album ever released by a band.

Appetite for Destruction accumulating worldwide sales of just over 28 million as of October.

# In 1989 Rolling Stone ranked Appetite for Destruction as the 20th best album of the 1980s.
# The same magazine later ranked it at sixty-one on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

2009 Sales Analysis: Guns N' Roses Vs. AC/DC

Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy sold only 255k in its first week as a Best Buy exclusive. Compared with the 802k tallied by AC/DC in it's first week.

AC/DC, Nirvana, Metallica, GNR Among the New Classics?
News
"They say the classics never go out of style, but they do. They do."

And now the AP bolsters that claim by citing new sales trends that show AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Guns N' Roses, as well as Nirvana and Metallica have bumped the Bob Marleys and the Pink Floyds down on the still-selling-well classics list.

The most interesting numbers from the article are last year's sales tallies for the following albums, all of which Yahoo!/the AP jacked from Neilsen Soundscan:

AC/DC - Back in Black (1980): 440,000
Metallica - Black Album (1991): 275,000
Bon Jovi - Cross Road (1994): 324,000
Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction (1987): 124,000
Michael Jackson - Number Ones (2003): 162,000
Radiohead - Ok Computer (1997): 94,000
Nirvana - Nevermind (1991): 143,000
The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin (1999): 38,000

Among albums that sold at least 20,000 copies last year include U2 - The Joshua Tree, Dr. Dre - The Chronic, Beck - Odelay, Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Weezer - The Blue Album and The Pixies - Doolittle.

Other best-of or greatest hits collections that continue to sell well include releases by Garth Brooks, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tim McGraw, Creed, Queen, Tom Petty, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Def Leppard, Aerosmith and Lionel Richie.

On the other hand, sales for albums by ultra trendy mega-sellers like the Spice Girls, Bobby Brown, The Backstreet Boys, Ace of Base, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey have dropped significantly.

Some of the things that can give past albums a boost include current events (like a new album release), the death of an artist, a biopic, a reissue and obviously, a reunion.

In fact that last point is currently being driven home by the reunion of The Police, whose 1986 compilation, Every Breath You Take has already sold 107,000 copies this year, which doubles its 2006 total.
