If this is the best of hard rock please bring disco back.How can you have an album like this without bands like AC/DC,AEROSMITH,MOTLEY CRUE,G'N'R,VAN HALEN or a hundred other bands that are more talented than these featured groups!You make me sick!

Ummm, right. This is part of a 4-volume, 8-CD set, released in EUROPE, not the U.S., so of course it's going to be dominated by European acts. I, for one, think it's one hell of a series. A very eclectic mix of bands included.

From: Mike Date: April 3, 2002 at 15:01
My pers. favourites are ZERO-rulez,C.O.T.,Plunkett.

From: Mike Date: April 3, 2002 at 15:02
Oh,by the way, is there any pages about Zero?? Who the hell are they??

From: Mike Date: April 3, 2002 at 15:03
Oh, my there any page? are there any pages?

Zero's available on Ebay once in a great while. This series had some good songs I din't know too much about.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: June 19, 2002 at 21:20
There is a band on this CD called Mud Slick with a song called "Money". I heard another song by them called "Rain" and it sounded pretty cool. I would like to hear more from them, but I can't find any of their CD's? Also, they do not have a page on this website.

I have all 4 discs in the series. I was fortunate enough to find them all in a used cd store of all places. This is an incredible set of CDs. I'm not saying every single song is good, but the biggest majority of them are though. This turned me on to some great groups that I had not heard or had heard little of. If you can find them, buy them. They are all 4 absolutely great.

un muy buen doble album de hard aor. Recopilatorio para conocer grupos.

From: TechNoir Date: July 11, 2011 at 14:47
This is a really great series. I was wondering if anyone knows where the W.A.S.P. track Breathe comes from? Its not on any of the releases listed on this site.
