I would go for Faith No More, ZZ Top, Marilyn Manson, and Dream Theater and would probably check out Slipknot and the Prodigy while I was there just because I have never seen those two.

Bruno - Um... No, Anvil did not do Balls to the Wall...... That was Accept.!!

Branded - Hey man, I still enjoy ALOT of the music from the 80s... Not necessarily Whitesnake or Motley Crue..!! ( And Ive always hated Poison)
Bands like Saxon, Fastway, Dokken and Tesla get played quite frequently around my place..!
