Reliving the 80's

Here's a fun little quiz I found on Local 10's website. For you 30 and even 40-somethings out there, it's a fun stroll down memory lane.

I am proud to say (believe it or not), that I got them all right except for one. That's a testament to the power of MTV for an impressionable teen some twenty years ago.

As much as these "hair bands" were maligned (in some cases deservedly so) a lot of them are still around touring and even recording original material. That's more than can be said for the majority of the grunge bands which popped up in the early-mid 90's.

Can you guess the name of the band pictured below? Brownie points will be distributed for all correct answers.

That's Warrant... If I'm right, I don't know why I would know that. Man, the subconscious...

Bingo! You are a true hair metal warrior.

Of course, I happened to name the file "warrant.jpg" which kind of gave it away if someone was smart enough to notice the URL on the pic! ;)

I guessed Quiet Riot on every picture (except for Iron Maiden and Motley Crue which are freakin' obvious). Hey, I grew up without MTV. But quiz me on Soviet leaders...
