Default Some good 60's/70's/80's rock/metal bands?

I have ~2400 songs on my iTunes library, and I am looking to find some good bands that I might not have heard of. To make it easier on you, here are the bands that are already in my library:

AC/DC
Accept
Aerosmith
Alice Cooper
The Beatles
Black Sabbath
Bon Jovi
Chuck Berry
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Deep Purple
Def Leppard
Dio
Elf
Guns N' Roses
Iron Maiden
Jackyl
Jimi Hendrix
Judas Priest
Kiss
Led Zeppelin
Megadeth
Metallica
Mick Jagger
Motley Crue
Nightwish
Ozzy Osbourne
Pink Floyd
Queen
Queens Of The Stone Age
Quiet Riot
Rainbow
Rammstein
Rob Zombie
The Rolling Stones
Scorpions
Skid Row
Slayer
Steppenwolf
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Twisted Sister
Van Halen (NOT Van Hagar)
White Zombie
Whitesnake
Zz Top


Those are the bands I currently have. If you want, you can suggest cd's I should get from the above bands, and I will tell you if I already have them or not.

But if you think of a band that I should check out, please post the name and a suggestion of one of their cd's to listen to. Thanks

A good share of the metal sub genres got their start in the 70's and 80's, more in the 80's.

I don't see Motorhead on your list, look for Ace of Spades or Orgasmatron.

It didn't change, it is just a way of saying that I want DLR not Sammy Hagar.

But thanks, I will go get some Motorhead.

I like VH better with Dave, but it was still pretty good with Sammy.

If you end up liking Motorhead, Check out Girlschool.

VH was definitely better with Roth, no arguing there.

Thanks for the tip, I will check back on this thread tomorrow since I have to go to go bed now.

I endorse Queensryche, add in Rush, Triumph, Lynard Skynard, Thin Lizzie and the Doors. More when my brain starts working again.
