Some songs never get old, no matter how many times you hear them. Tonight we will play a few of those epic songs that will live on forever, along with some songs that have been forgotten over time and others that have been overshadowed by bigger hits. Guns N’ Roses, Skid Row, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe…they’re all on Hard Rock Nights tonight. Be sure to tune in to Hard Rock Nights on classxradio.com tonight, 9-11 pm eastern time.
After the show, check out the Hard Rock Nights blog for the complete playlist for this week and all previous programs!

Geffen Records signed the Rock City Angels to a massive 6.2 million dollar deal back in the mid 80’s. With so much money at their disposal, surely this band was headed for greatness right?! Where are they now?! Check out their video, “Deep Inside My Heart”. This is from their debut CD, “Young Man’s Blues”.
“Damned Nation” is the CD that should have taken Jetboy’s career to the next level. While “Damned Nation” may not be as classic as say, Guns N’ Roses “Appetite for Destruction”, it is easily Jetboy’s best offering. If more fans would have heard this disc back when it was released in the day, Jetboy would have been more of a household name than a mere footnote in the world of hard rock.
I have been a fan of Jetboy since their debut CD from the 80’s, but “Damned Nation” is the disc I still play the most. With awesome cuts like Stomp It (Down To the Bricks), Moonlight and Heavy Chevy, this CD will likely appeal to fans of bands coming out of the Sunset Strip in the mid eighties such as L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat. There is also a really cool guest appears by Michael Monroe (Hanoi Rocks) who plays saxophone on the tune “Rock N’ Roller”
Jetboy’s mixture of glam and punk was very well done, and they should have hit a homerun with “Damned Nation”. Jetboy never got the proper support from their label and instead of “Damned Nation” propelling the band to superstar status, the lack of label support for this disc eventually led to their demise. Thank the rock gods that the band has gotten back together again once more!
This CD has been out of print for years, but you find used copies of it at this link. Grab this CD while you can!
