To be fair, Motley Crue was in the beginning of the 80s. Too Fast for Love was released on their own label in 1981, and on Electra in 1982. They played the US Festival in 1983 before Shout at the Devil was released. I think they just get remembered more for their late 80s MTV attention and the poppier hits.So sad that the '80's' are judged by the end of the 80's and not the beginning Ozzy/Rhoads, EVH, Ac Dc, Scorps, Hi n Dry, Piece of mind, Moving pictures, Priest- 'Unleashed in the east' Queensryche -The warning
Dio, Ratt, Dokken, MAIDEN
