We'll never make it to 1980 at this rate. I'll rename the thread later.

Since hhh was having a hard time breaking out of 1979 I figured I'd share this one from my home town.

Lay It On The Line

I was 17 years old at the time. These guys were on EVERY Vancouver kids car stereo, and I was out street racing and having a blast.

Ok how about a nice segue? Song released in 1979 but the video was recorded in 1980.

Shot Down In Flames

Wow! These guys were really at the top of their game here. 
Crank it up devil

So, which one of the two died?
Yep, some energetic and very precise (despite the headbanging) craftsmanship.

Bon Scott, lead singer. Died in 1980.
Same year the video I posted was made if the info on youtube was accurate.
Sadly the band was never the same. Brian Johnson just didn't measure up imho.
