80's metal videos

I didn't have Mtv in the 80's but I did get to go my friend's house and watch it from time to time. If you are of a certain age then there is a good chance that Twisted Sister's videos for I wanna rock and We're not gonna take it may have made an impression on you . Other 80's metal videos that made an impression on me were Van Halen's Hot for teacher, Ratt's Round and round, Dio's Last in line, Iron Maiden's Two minutes to midnight and Judas Priest's You got another thing comin'. I am not sure if these were some of the best videos, but they were some of the first metal videos that I saw and they stuck in my head. What are some metal or hard rock videos from the 1980's that made an impression on you or that you liked?

Oh yeah thanks for getting that stuck in my head tonight!!! I think I'll go post about watching the debut of MTV...then again maybe not, since that will confirm that I am over 30 and I'm still in denial about that.

And, as a blossoming girl, all of Billy Idol and (Kip) Winger's videos left a big impression on me. :)

Without a doubt, Lita Ford's "Kiss Me Deadly" video. She sure knew how to work that mic..

Metallica - One: I remember gathering with all of my metal head friends to see this premier.

Megadeth: Peace Sells

As I type this, my two year old daughter just picked up a copy of Decibel magazine out our magazine rack and is paging through it, lol. I guess she likes the reviews.

Megadeth - Holy Wars

Whitesnake - Still of the Night. the ultimate poser hymn... heheh

Extreme - Decadence Dance.

Motley Crue - Girls, Girls, Girls
and the way they intimidated that poor guy out of the table he was sitting, near the beginning of the video.

G-n-R's Welcome to the jungle, Testament's Over the wall and Manowar's cheesey Blow you speakers were all videos from 1987 that I remember liking back then.

Funniest one for me is still "Breaking The Law" - Judas Priest

I still like "Livin' On The Edge" by Aerosmith. Great video

There were so many metal videos of the 80s that were a trip. The Twisted Sister videos were favs (the addition of Nedermeyer from Animal House was great).
BOC's "Burnin' For You" was one of the earliest videos I saw, so that has sentimental value.

VH's "Hot for Teacher" made an impression all right--it gave every boy between 10 and 16 years old fantasies that last a lifetime ... and caused men 17 through middle-age to ogle teachers like never before.

My early favorites, partly for the cheese factor, included "Queen of the Ryche" by Queensryche, "California Girls" by DLR, "Tears Are Falling" from Kiss, and the truly ridiculous "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Savatage.

Then there's the truly awful, like "Smokin' in the Boys' Room" by the Crue and "Turbo Lover" from Priest. Yikes.

Does anyone remember the Firehouse video for "Don't treat Me Bad"?
If anyone does, does anyone know who the girl in the video is?
