Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Hanoi Rocks

Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Hanoi Rocks by Hanoi Rocks
Released: Jan 1981
Label: Hanoi Rocks
Hanoi Rock's awesome debut was not a commercial success, but that doesn't mean it didn't exert a massive influence on 1980s hard rock, because it sure did. By fusing glam, boogie, first-wave heavy metal, power pop and punk, as well as smothering their faces in foundation, these Finnish wild men single-handedly invented the hair-metal template. This record is classic from beginning to end, with more than a few tracks serving as obvious inspirations for Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses, Ratt and the like.
