Would all make my list. Probably the most overlap we'd ever have. I quite like a couple others you listed too.

The 80s were a good time, man.

I honestly prefer the music of more recent years in terms of a lot of aspects. It's just that the 80s are so much easier to just agree upon because the majority of us all love a lot of the same records from that decade.

Yeah, I probably prefer the 2000s as well, but that's kind of a natural result of getting into metal in the 2000s. There's easily dozens of bands of little-known status from the 80s who I'll never hear because their reputations haven't survived to the present or I don't know where to look. I don't know that the 2000s are necessarily the best decade, but I've certainly heard more stuff from them than any other.

You need what I have - A friend who lived through 80s with music taste nearly identical to your own.

It's great. My friend Chris is 39 and knows about a ton of the lesser known/forgotten metal acts of the mid-to-late 80s since he was basically on my level of musical fanaticism back then. Also great because he never lost that interest and he and I can talk for seriously hours about all different facets of music.

However, as a result of his age and constant love of music, his CD collection is over 5,000-strong.

Brad, my name is Chris and I'll be 39 in a couple of weeks (plus, I live in Ohio). Close enough?

I'll be your huckleberry.

6 Iron Maiden Powerslave
5 Iron Maiden Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
4 Metallica Master Of Puppets
