Quiet Riot began in Los Angeles in 1975 and had back-to-back platinum in the 1980s with Mental Health (1983) and Condition Critical (1984).
Those two albums produced a top-five hit on the pop chart, a remake of Slade's 'Cum on Feel the Noize' (#5), and six top 40 songs on the rock chart.
Original lead singer Kevin DuBrow passed away in 2007. Drummer Frankie Banali is the lone holdover from the band's glory days. Former L.A. Guns and Ratt singer Jizzy Pearl is handling lead vocals.
Molly Hatchet started in Jacksonville, Florida in 1971 and their first three albums - Molly Hatchet (1978), Flirtin' With Disaster (1979), and Beatin' the Odds (1980) - all went platinum.
The title track to the second album cracked the top 50 on the pop chart (#42), while 1984's 'Satisfied Man' was their biggest hit on the rock chart (#13).
Founding guitarist Dave Hlubek passed away in 2017. Guitarist Bobby Ingram and keyboardist John Galvin have been with Molly Hatchet since the mid-1980s.

Blackfoot has 11 studio albums to their credit, including 1979's Strikes, which produced the group's two biggest hits, 'Train Train' and 'Highway Song'.
