What band am I thinking of? (#2)
This was fun yesterday. Let's see if people reply today. You ask questions and try to figure out what band I am thinking of. Go ahead, I'm ready. :)

Answer from yesterday (I won't repeat answers):

Guns n Roses

don't have punk elements.

So, then...no. :D

81. Let's look at the hints...
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 10:11 AM by gr8dane_daddy
1. Not a hair band
2. Rock band with some punk elements
3. Multiple hits
4. British from the 80's
5. All male
6. Not named after any band members
7. Name is not anything sexually motivated.

Did they hit it big in the early part of the 80's or latter part?
