Scorpions
Scorpions
Scorpions are a band who experimented with many styles of Rock music including 1970's Hard Rock and 1980's Hair / Glam Metal (Heavy Metal).

Known for their 80's rock anthem, "Rock You Like a Hurricane," as well as other popular songs such as, "No One Like You", "Send Me an Angel", "Still Loving You", and "Wind of Change," Scorpions were ranked #46 on VH1's "Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" television program. "Rock You Like a Hurricane" is also #18 on VH1's list of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. On January 24, 2010, after 45 years of performing, the band announced that they would be retiring after touring in support of their new album "Sting In The Tail". However, after enjoying the tour they decided to continue. New songs were written and new albums were released. As well touring continued. The band sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Other sources even mention album sales in excess over 150 Million.

Queensrÿche
Although they were initially grouped with the legions of pop-metal bands that dominated the American heavy metal scene of the '80s, Queensrÿche were one of the most distinctive bands of the era. Where their contemporaries built on the legacy of Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Kiss, Queensrÿche constructed a progressive form of heavy metal that drew equally from the guitar pyrotechnics of post-Van Halen metal and '70s art rock, most notably Pink Floyd and Queen. After releasing a handful of ignored albums, the band began to break into the mainstream with the acclaimed 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime. Its follow-up, Empire, was the group's biggest success, selling over two million copies due to the hit single "Silent Lucidity." Queensrÿche never sustained that widespread popularity -- like most late-'80s metal bands, their audience disappeared after the emergence of grunge. Nevertheless, they retained a large cult following well into the ensuing decades.
