- The Queensrÿche recipe: heady prog-rock, full-bore metal, and politically conscious lyricism
- Led by: former Crimson Glory and Rising West frontman Todd La Torre, flanked by original members Michael Wilton and Eddie Jackson
- The band’s most famous work: the concept album Operation Mindcrime
- Its concept: a heroin addict wakes up in the hospital and struggles to remember what got him there
- Their latest: The Verdict, their 15th studio album featuring the singles “Man the Machine,” “Dark Reverie,” and “Blood of the Levant.”
- When you first met Stryper: it was 1983, and they stood out like bumblebee-striped thumbs
- Because: at the time, there were plenty of heavy-metal bands and Christian bands, but Stryper was one of the first to combine both genres
- Where they got their name: from Isaiah 53:5 of the King James Version of the Bible; “and with his stripes we are healed”
- Cool backronym the band created for themselves: “Salvation Through Redemption, Yielding Peace, Encouragement, and Righteousness”
- Their breakthrough 1986 album: To Hell with the Devil
- The hits that made it go double-platinum: “Free,” “Honestly,” and the Satan-punching title track
- What to expect from Stryper’s live show: greatest and latest hits delivered by Michael Sweet’s operatic voice, Robert Sweet’s steadily crashing drums, Tim Gaines’ palpitating bass, and Oz Fox’s fret-scorching lead guitar
- Great White: The band behind arena hits “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” “Rock Me,” and “Save Your Love” has grittily blended blues and rock since they burst onto the scene in the early 1980s.
- Vixen: the all-lady glam band achieved platinum status in the ’80s and ’90s on the power of hits such as “Cryin’” and “How Much Love,” racking up over a million albums sold, six #1 videos on MTV, and four songs on Billboard’s Hot 100
