The 80's were a fantastic decade for heavy metal and glam rock…some of the best metal albums were released in that decade. The ‘80s explosion of metal into the mainstream saw tons of bands getting radio and MTV airplay. It also saw the birth and rise of more extreme genres of metal. Soon a whole new form of metal burst onto the scene when thrash took over and bands like Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth came to the forefront.
