    How many of you listened to hair bands and heavier music, but still enjoyed the (new wave bands) Duran Duran, eurythmics, berlin, but kept it to yourself.

    Metal head/hard rock/classic rock listener in high school. Didn't appreciate the new wave stuff until way later. My brother was the exact opposite.

    I started high school in '89 and was a metalhead since around the time I was 8, seeing bands like Van Halen, Def Lep, Maiden, etc. on MTV. Although I never got into new wave I still was pretty open minded about other music like Hall & Oates, Prince, Michael Jackson, Men at Work, and all kinds of pop and R&B that I kept away from my metal buddies (come to find out they were all doing the same thing!).

    I liked the new wave stuff, and admitted it. Their videos were way cooler on MTV. Wild Boys/The Reflex/Paul Young. Excellent!

    I listen to First Wave sometimes on sirius , a lot of good tunes. In 1985 that's all MTV played so heard it a lot.

    The hair bands gave awesome concerts. I saw Poison play in 1989 and had the best tim at their show. Same with Motley Crüe.

    I remember the first time I saw Boy George on MTV. I was shocked and intrigued all at the same time. I watched for hours just to see him again.

    I also loved the Asia video that had the tv screens constantly going across the screen. "Heat of the Moment" maybe? I miss those old MTV days

    I saw twisted sister open up for iron Maiden and someone threw a bottle at Dee . He went on a rant ,we're twisted fucking sister, laughs all around. Later in life as a happily married man found myself at a Nelson concert in past robles.

    I remember seeing W.A.S.P perform with replicas of their heads on pikes. Blackie Lawless threw raw meat into the audience.

    I Saw WASP at the Boston Orpheum on Super Bowl Sunday, 1987. I wasn't really into them. But I liked one of the opening acts, Raven. Unfortunately they opened for Saxon, who then opened for WASP. So they had about 20 minutes of stage time and didn't sell any merchandise. But overall a good show.
