    At least the hair bands knew more than 3 cords. :p

    Yup, I'm too young to remember the hair bands or the height of grunge first-hand. I graduated high school when Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Weezer, Foo Fighers and the like ruled the airwaves. Or at least that's what I was listening to. ;lol Class of '02. During my senior year I discovered a copy of AC/DC's The Razor's Edge and it was game on from there. Shifted to Aerosmith, Def Leppard, AC/DC (a favorite) and other hard rockers from the 70's/80's heyday.

    This was a big hit then: (I wouldn't subject you to the other songs on the list, early 2000's musical fare was pretty rotten.)

    Another '88 here.

    This was a glimmer of hope in the days of hair bands.


    I think these guys helped scare away the hair bands.

    Saw Three Dog Night live, Chicago and later the Stones. But the biggest rush was being backstage for a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar when it was working its way to Broadway. My roommate's brother was the business manager for the roadshow production company, Flying Hero Productions. Still have the pass in a box of mementos.
