TOPIC: 1990/1991 in hard rock & heavy metal music

Yes, this had to be the ultimate year of hard rock & heavy metal music. After declining in the mid to late 80s in the face of hair metal, glam rock and desperate attempts to reconcile with fans by inserting the bland glammy style into their least as far as heavy metal was concerned, they came around victorious baring their teeth with razor sharp records that came out in the 1990/1991 era. Of course, bands such as Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, Dangerous Toys & Racer X were immune to the glam syndrome in the second half of the '80s. Nonetheless, 1990/1991 brought out a fresher, heavier, faster and meaner sound and style than what could ever be offered during these bands' pinnacle in the early '80s. Songs such as Alice Cooper's Hey Stoopid, Guns N' Roses' You Could Be Mine, Skid Row's Slave To The Grind & Get The Fuck Out, AC/DC's Thunderstruck, Dangerous Toys' Teasn' Pleasn', Whitesnake's Cheap N' Nasty & Slip Of The Tongue (late '89 but we can squeeze it in as '90), Ozzy Osbourne's Mr Tinkertrain, Desire & No More Tears and of course....Judas Priest's almighty Painkiller, All Guns Blazing, Metal Meltdown & One Shot At Glory, will all remain testament to as solid, clear and fresh sounding as a hard rock / heavy metal act can get. This era brought us fast, heavy, solid, balls to the walls music for one more victorious round before the grunge would eventually take over.
