No Motley Crue??

Whoever made this playlist forgot to put Motley Crue on here. They were like one of the biggest bands of the 80's.


Alright yeah yeah we all know AC/DC isn't on here. They won't sell the rights, sorry guys, its not iTunes's fault. But 80s AC/DC only had a few massive hits (Shoot to Thrill, Hells Bells, You Shook Me All Night Long, FTABTR and Back in Blck), off of Back in Black and For Those About to Rock. Flick of the Switch was unbelievably underrated and everytihng else wasn't near the top. Highway to Hell, Dirty Deeds, TNT, Let There Be Rock, Rosie, Problem Child, Rock n Roll Damnation, It's a Long Way to the Top....guys, that was the 70s. Dream On was 1973 so stop complaining about that one. Anyone who says Bon Jovi isn't 80s hard rock has not heard You Give Love a Bad Name. Dr. Feelgood should be in the Top 5 instead of Jump. Girls Girls Girls should be in the top 20. But this is really great music. If you like 80s hard rock you wouldn't be slamming this album

80's with no AC/DC

Not a bad group of songs but you can't call any "hard rock of the 80's" a collection without AC/DC. It is like trying to stick a candle in a bowl of batter and call it a birthday cake. Albums like, "Back in Black" and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", were not only the best this period had to offer but inspired many of there contemporaries.
