    Aussie Intruders and you leave off AC/DC's Highway to Hell? For that alone, your list is terminally flawed and remiss, berift of serious consideration. But wait, there's more!...You also leave off Judas Priest's Unleashed In The East, Cheap Trick's Dream Police, and At Budokan, The Cars Candy-O, The Knack, disco, The Scorpions, Led Zepplin, Van Helen, The Police, etc etc

    Next!
