Hadn't heard it in awhile and man it still rocks -

Hells Bells by AC/DC

I know, guilty pleasure. But man, it rocks! (Did I mention that)

What's yours?

Kind of modern for me normally, but sometimes I let loose

Here's a song from about 20 years ago that I literally forgot even existed until it randomly popped into my head a couple days ago

This song is from 1987 and I absolutely LOVE it whenever I hear it. Then it’s over and I’ll go months, sometimes years without hearing it, will forget all about it, then it’ll be back on the radio and I’ll fall in love with this song all over again. I finally remembered to buy the single on iTunes this week. :cloud9: https://youtu.be/5HI_xFQWiYU

Until the question was asked.

That's a good one!

Here's another rocker that's often forgotten - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPNqojbyIDk

I hadn't heard this song in, well, probably 20 years! That's a good one.

That's a great song. Make me think of Happy Days....a better era of TV.

On the subject of TV theme songs that became pop hits, I think this one is my favorite: https://youtu.be/B4JCehDOy54

(Keeping in mind, of course, that the Peter Gunn theme is in a class all by itself. I especially enjoy this alt rock version: https://youtu.be/tK-vUY6erQU )

This is a hard question. If I've forgotten about it, how can I post it here? But I think I've managed to come up with a couple of examples. I thought of bands I used to listen to a fair bit, but haven't listened to for ages. And then I thought not of whatever big hits they might have had (that would, thus, be less likely to count as "forgotten" by me) but of album tracks that stood out for me in the old days, that I haven't heard forever, and that upon thinking of now, strike me as fitting the category. Also left out any songs by thrash bands.

OK, there's some overthinking for you. :fyi:

Example #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTJc_Yt2Z4s

Example #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqUAYsynaP8

Example #3: not that I'd put this band in the same class as the above two. The above two are fine metal groups. This one's the best ever. But still, some of their songs are really sleepers in the "rocks out" department. I can't mention "Symptom of the Universe" in this category because in no sense have I ever forgotten about it. Or "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath." But there are some other ones not quite so iconic (for me, anyway) that jump out when I cast my mind back to the days when I listened to Sabbath all the time:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7UZeHvMYZA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-PJDim8CsY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyXqWzZ_8sM (don't get too thrown off by the disturbing sounds at the beginning)

Man, I had forgotten about a couple of those Sabbath songs, especially the Writ. They were the original heavy metal band.

"Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" is awesome. My mom took that album and hid it from me....I'm assuming she threw it away. That cover was pretty bad. :oops:
