W.A.S.P. - The Last Command (1985)

Metal Storm: "Throughout this album there is a great mixture of fun, sleazy party-hard songs such as "Blind in Texas" and "Sex Drive," great fist pumping chant-along anthems such as "The Last Command" and "Running Wild in the Streets," a ballad like "Cries in the night," and even something that very few so called "hair metal" bands could achieve: an epic, which is the track "Widowmaker." It shows such a great combination of straightforward rock n roll with deeper more grandiose songs which is why I think this album is the pinnacle for Blackie & the boys.But whose to forget possibly the most famous song off the album (if not the entire W.A.S.P. career) "Wild Child," in which Blackie proves to be one of the most talented vocalists in metal. This song was originally written by Blackie to be performed by Motley Crue, but Vince didn't have the range to handle such a song."

Ozzy Osbourne - The Ultimate Sin (1986)

Heavy Metal About.com:"In 1986, Ozzy released his fourth solo album, The Ultimate Sin. It had a huge hit, "Shot in the Dark," and went double-platinum. "Shot in the Dark" is a pop metal anthem that works because it is unlike anything Ozzy had ever released. It was originally recorded a few years prior by the rock band Wildfire. Bassist Phil Soussan, who was a former member of Wildfire, brought the song with him when he joined Ozzy's band. The song was reworked, given a faster tempo, and turned into the hit that was probably one of the few catalysts for the solid album sales The Ultimate Sin ascertained."

Quiet Riot - Metal Health (1983)

Wikipedia: "Metal Health is the third studio album by American heavy metal band Quiet Riot. It was released on March 11, 1983, bolstered by the #5 hit "Cum on Feel the Noize" and the #31 hit "Metal Health". Metal Health is notable for being the first heavy metal album to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. It knocked The Police's Synchronicity out of #1 in the US. The album went on to sell more than six million copies and is considered a classic among heavy metal fans. Some critics, such as Allmusic,describe it as a one-hit wonder, owing to Quiet Riot's relative lack of critical and commercial success with following albums (and subsequent disintegration) towards the end of the 1980s. The title track was ranked #35 on VH1's 40 Greatest Metal Songs."

Especially if you’re a fan of singer Elize Ryd. She winds up going for a swim and getting out of a pool in high heels for some reason. At any rate, check out this video for one of the catchiest songs on the album."
