I love hard rock and heavy metal; however, I have to understand the lyrics without a crib sheet. This means I don't get off on 'Cookie Monster' lyrics (I believe John Cena coined the phrase). Constant machine gun bass drums is only slightly less annoying. I differ a bit from Thump in that I think Megadeth is the best of the Big Four (btw Thump, Seasons is my favorite Slayer song). I think Pantera was the best metal band out of the 90s. I love Stone Sour, but think they were underrated because they never overcame the Taylor/Root 'side project' tag.

I got to see Saxon at B.B. Kings Blues Club in Manhattan this past summer, such a fucking treat. These guys sell out arenas in Europe and I only had to share them with maybe 1500 people. John Bush and Armored Saint opened. I moved to Orlando last month and thought my days of easy access to the bands I love was over, but I scored tickets to see Maiden in Ft. Lauderdale next February. 

I had to travel to Houston last week and ran into Eddie Trunk in the Orlando airport. He's taller than what I assumed from watching his show. He was immediately standoffish; however, he warmed up nicely once he realized I wasn't fawning nor about to ask for an autograph or picture. 

My musical contribution to the thread? 80s hairband metal gets a bad rep because of the stupid ballads that were popular and record companies forced into the albums so 14 year old girls with disposable income would purchase them. But, there's a lot of good hard driving rock from those bands:

Dokken

For me Metallica is the best of the Big 4, but I like Megadeth and Slayer too. Testament should replace Anthrax though imho. Not a huge fan of Stone Sour or Slipknot or too much of the modern mainstream stuff. Though I do enjoy Airbourne, even if they're an AC/DC clone.

Saxon are an amazing band, prolly the world's most underrated NWOBHM bands. 

I grew up on those 80's Hair bands mayn, which is weird because I'm only 23. lol My father listened to that kind of music a lot. Gun & Roses, Winger, Warrant, all that stuff.

Saxon was great fun live a coupla years ago, but I find their studio stuff too tame and sterile.

You're right in that Tankard usually are mentioned with the other three, but I am partial to HM.

Finally someone posts something good. I am a big fan of sodom and kreator. I was getting sort of disappointed with this thread. Here's some more good thrash metal.
