    Default Bad To The Bone's "5 Song Game"

    I thought this might be a cool little game. I tend to listen to VH, Hagar, Montrose, DLR and alot of hairbands. Alot of bands that people love like Judas Priest or Iron maiden I have never really rapped my head around so I thought this would be a neat way to help me-or anyone else-find cool songs by bands or guys I don't really get. For example I will post the name of a band I don't really get or want to get into and you post 5 songs by said band or artist that you think will get me (or anyone else) geeked. Now if I said "Dio era Black Sabbath" I could respond with:

    Heaven and hell
    The Mob Rules
    Neon knights
    Falling off the Edge of the World
    Computer god


    and I think that would be a good starting point for someone who wants to explore this band.

    so lets start with an easy one:

    Iron Maiden


    *I love The Number of the Beast but that's all I have on my IPOD.....help me like Iron Maiden.

    This looks like fun. I'm not a big Maiden fan so I can't contribute, but I hope this thread can grow a bit

    As someone who only started liking Iron Maiden in the late nineties (my friend took me to an Iron Maiden show and I was hooked), I think I can help. I'm going to skip the more popular stuff (Trooper, Run to the Hills, Wasted Years) you've probably already heard and didn't grab you.

    Try:
    Heaven Can Wait (off of Somewhere in Time)
    The Longest Day (off of A Matter of Life and Death)
    Wraithchild (off of Killers) (or the live version from Rock in Rio)
    Die With Your Boots On or Flight of Icarus (off of Piece of Mind)
    Aces High (off of Powerslave)

    I'm hoping one of those songs converts you! I'll try to come up with a band I'm having problems with later.

    Children Of The Damned

    Flight Of Icarus

    Powerslave (The Whole album, but for this thread, listen to the title track)

    Wasted Years

    Wraithchild

    Considering that you already have and like one of their greatest songs, here are my recommendations:
    1. The Trooper [Piece Of Mind]
    2. Run To The Hills [The Number Of The Beast]
    3. Wasted Years [Somewhere In Time]
    4. The Clansman (live) [Rock In Rio]
    5. The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner [Powerslave]

    good replies and I will be checking them out.

    How about a new one:

    Micheal Schenker

    I NEVER heard anything by this guy I thought was great......he's just an outdated 70's guitar player to me but people love him.

    make my impression of Schenker a bit better if you can.

    IMO the best Maiden song bar none is Number Of The Beast. Fucking song is unbelievable in every way. After that I would give these 4 to someone to get them hooked on Maiden:

    Aces High
    2 Minutes To Midnight
    Children Of The Damned
    Hallowed Be Thy Name
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    how about a new band?

    Judas Preist...

    pretty much the same thing as iron maiden, I have one song on my IPOD I love (rapid fire) but after that I have no idea what else they have out there that I would like.

    somebody suggest to me some Priest cause if they have more stuff like rapid fire I would be a happy man.

    lol, I don't listen to bon jovi at all, the only poison cd I won is crack a smile with blues scarceno (sp) on guitar and I stand by an earlier statement that it's probably one of the best unheard "rock" cd's that came out in the 90's, there's alot of good tunes on that disk and if you forget it's poison for a few minutes you might actually like it.
