    Who's your fave Hard-MeloRock Band?

    Any one in particular that you guys like? They were not Metal and they were not Hair, but fell in between as good ol' Rock that was pleasing to our ears and most of their songs ended up being part of our time capsule. So, who's your fave

    Man!! That was hard

    But I chose Journey. Just cause when I hear the term "Melodic Rock" I think of them. I LOVE GnR, but I like them more for their harder stuff (does that make sense?). And IMO Journey's "Escape" ablum was a melodic masterpiece.

    I voted for Cheap Trick! Yay!

    I know. That's a really, really tough choice. I like all the bands mentioned above and then some! I think Cheap Trick had a really good blend of melodic Rock, some edgy stuff, and they're just a blast to hear! My fave is their album "Live! At The Budokan."

    I love Journey and Guns 'N Roses too. Hmmm. I could only pick one, though.

    Um, it has to be Def Leppard. No other bands can compare to them.

    I also chose Def Leppard, but I also love Van Halen with David Lee Roth. It was a really hard choice, but Def Leppard gets my vote.

    I wish I could have seen them when they came in town.

    Tough decision. Aerosmith got my vote, followed closely by Guns'n'Roses.

    Like there was any other choice.......Rush! If not for the writing style of Neil Peart then for the sheer brilliance in the musicianship of all three.

    I must not be into that type of music, because the only band I really like out of that list is Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. So that's what I voted for.
