HAIR BAND HEAVEN - Top 10 ( Hard Rock / Metal ) Albums of the 80's

The editors at were recently given the task of picking their ten favorite hard rock/metal albums from the 1980's. With the never ending scope of great material to choose was nearly an imposssible task. As I made my way down my list there are so many great albums from bands that I kept going back and forth on, albums that meant a lot to me growing up. There are plenty of records that I completly wore out growing like the first Black n Blue album , Keel's The Final Frontier, every Cinderella, Poison, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden record etc etc ......and yet still some just missed my list. So here it is the TOP TEN favorite albums from the 1980's from the editors of HBH ( in no particular order ) . - Josh
