ACDC - Highway To Hell - promo album cover pic - #19BSMO

On August 3rd, 1979 – The iconic AC/DC released their breakthrough studio album in the United States: Highway To Hell. Tragically, this would be the last studio album that the legendary (and late) Bon Scott would sing on. Robert John “Mutt” Lange was the producer for Highway To Hell. My favorite song on this album is: Touch Too Much. Oh, man, that song revs me up, like no tomorrow!

Judas Priest - classic band logo - #030333MOMNSMSRF

On August 3rd, 1986 – The mighty JUDAS PRIEST performed at the Toledo Sports Arena, in Toledo, Ohio, USA. Hail JUDAS PRIEST!

Def Leppard - Hysteria - promo album cover pic - #33BB

On August 3rd, 1987 – The great DEF LEPPARD released their fourth studio album: HYSTERIA. This album has sold 12 million (plus) copies in the United States. Sweet lord of mercy! Yes, this album features the hit single: Pour Some Sugar On Me.

On August 3rd, 2015FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have their third studio album, American Capitalist, ranked at #29, on the iTunes Top 100 Heavy Metal Albums Chart. Great balls of fire! This kick-ass album was released back in 2011.
