    Haha. Well done, good sir. I also must abstain from this poll, as I couldn't give less of a red fuck about a single band there.

    I do give Night Ranger and their debut record Dawn Patrol a slight pass for the technical prowess. But the rest of 'em can blow goats for nickels.

    I believe it's Stryper, not Styper, and Floyd, not Floye. Your stenographer must be on vacation.

    There are some REALLY bad bands in this list. Danger Danger makes it but Warrant doesn't? C'mon.

    Ratt
    Trixter
    Winger
    Stryper

    LA Guns
    Twisted Sister
    Cinderella
    Kix (great live band)

    Motley Crue
    Tesla
    Bullet Boys (this was like choosing between gonorrhea and chlamydia)
    Y & T

    Queensryche
    Mr. Big (don't like Mr. Big, but Pretty Boy Floyd sucks)
    Skid Row
    Hanoi Rocks


    Side note: as a child of the 80's, I have seen almost all of the bands in the OP live.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    It's a "who sucked more?" contest except for like two bands.
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen
