    Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    Too many to list. Let's just say anthem's are my all time favorite type of song.

    First that comes to mind (besides the KISS classics) is....

    Youth Gone Wild - Skid Row

    No matter what you think of Skid Row that was an all time anthem that had the complete recipe for the title of an Anthem.
    Andrés Segovia (1893-1987)

    Cyber Brother of SouthernImage Sicilian Cyber Brother of Annette
    "Smelly Sticker" Cyber Brother of Punky Power

    Cyber Brother of BlackOyster
    jen*'s "King Of The Shovel" Brother
    Completely awestruck by my incredible keriberri!!!

    Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    How about Rainbow in the Dark by Dio

    As far as 70s anthems, what about Anthem by Rush

    Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    I guess my favourite is "For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)" by AC/DC.

    Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    Maybe not a popular song for most, but I always get pumped when I hear

    SAXON - "Sailing To America" from the Crusader album (1984). Give it a listen ...


    Excitement in the air
    There's a journey to prepare
    They check the food and water's all on board
    They're waiting for the tide
    The sails are open wide
    They're sailing to a better place to dwell

    They're sailing to America
    Fly the banners high
    They're sailing to America
    Set the rigging high

    The quayside's full of friends
    A farewell in their hands
    No-one knows if they'll reach the shore
    As Plymouth slips away
    They'll not be back again
    They're sailing off towards the promised land

    They're sailing to America
    Fly the banners high
    They're sailing to America
    Set the rigging high

    They're sailing to America
    Fly the banners high

    The Mayflower's on her way
    Set sail for many days
    The lookout searching for the distant shore
    Anchored in the surf
    Their journey's at an end
    The pilgrims set their feet on virgin land

    They're sailing to America
    Fly the banners high
    They're sailing to America
    Set the rigging high

    Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    I think one that would qualify here is "Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2" by Pink Floyd

    Cool Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    LOTS of great choices! Yes, the KISS classics "Rock & Roll All Nite" & "Shout It Loud" are definite! An anthem should be a little attitude like Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" It probably should include speaking for "everyone" not be individualist(speaking for "myself") Thinking along those lines I would include:
    TWISTED SISTER-"I Wanna Rock"
    KISS-"I Love It Loud"
    PAT BENATAR-"Hit Me With Your Best Shot"
    QUEEN-"We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions"
    AUTOGRAPH-"Turn Up the Radio"
    DONNIE IRIS-"Love Is LIke A Rock"
    BRUCE SPRINGSTEIN-"Born In the USA"
    BEASTIE BOYS-"Fight For Your Right To Party"


    Some more individualist (speaking for "myself") songs with attitude might include:
    PAT BENATAR-"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" "You Better Run","Treat Me Right"
    BILLY JOEL-"Big Shot" & "You May Be Right"
    BILLY IDOL-"Rebel Yell" & "Dancin With Myself"
    DEF LEPPARD-"Foolin"
    KENNY LOGGINS-"I'm Alright"
    "REO SPEEDWAGON-"Keep On Lovin You"
    JOAN JETT &The BLACKHEARTS-"We're All Crazy Now" & "Bad Reputation"
    CINDERELLA-"Nobody's Fool"
    SLADE-"Mama We're All Crazy Now"
    The RAMONES-"Let's Go"
    TOM PETTY &The HEARTBREAKERS-”You Got Lucky” & “Don’t Come Around Here No More”
    ROMEO VOID_"Never Say Never"
    TODD RUNDGREN-"(I Don't Want To Work) Bang the Drum All Day"
    PHIL COLLINS-"I Don't Care Anymore"


    Though not 80's:
    The WHO-" “Baba O Reily”(Teenage Wasteland)."We're Not Gonna Take it","My Generation" & "Who Are You"
    GLENN FREY-"Party Town"
    STYX-"Come Sail Away","Foolin Yourself","Miss America","Blue Collar Man" & "Grand Illusion"
    JOURNEY-"Anyway You Want It"
    FLEETWOOD MAC-"The Chain"
    TOM PETTY &The HEARTBREAKERS-”Don’t Do Me Like That”
    MICHAEL BOLTON-"Everybody's Crazy"
    CHEAP TRICK-"We're All Alright"
    "He knew then and there the friendship they had shared since youth had died a sudden and tragic death.Destroyed by the love of a woman"
    "There can't be a winner! If there isn't a river!
    "What are we waiting for? "Just a few indecent thoughts....okay!"

    I would have to agree with you on that one!

    Re: Favorite Rock Anthem?

    For me, a great rock anthem has always been What Kind of Love is This? by Streetheart

    possibly even the 1984 classic Eighties by Killing Joke. It sums up the eighties in just one lyric

    Forgot about that one! Good pick!

    We could also make a case for "Slave To The Grind" off their 2nd CD.
