Big riffs, enormous power chords, soaring choruses, laser beams, aliens, spaceships, apocalyptic themes, mullets, aviator sunglasses, primitive special effects, and a generous dose of cheesiness. All these ingredients combined equals awesomeness biggrin.gif

By the way, check out video game at the beginning ph34r.gif

It's funny to think that it's going to go back to this in like 40 years because it'll be cool again!

Wow, that computer game is some sophisticated stuff !!!

Gotta love that '80's guitar tone' ! You all know the one... very twangy, lots of chorus effect ! wink.gif

But has anyone else ever noticed that, in the 80's, all those cheesy pop ballads had really mean guitar solos with great tone ? What was that about !? biggrin.gif
