Never one to bow to trends, Detroit's Ted Nugent calmly ignored New Wave, synth-pop, and other musical developments of the '80s, and continued to record unadulterated, guitar-heavy hard rock albums throughout the decade. His 1988 release, IF YOU CAN'T LICK 'EM... LICK 'EM, is typical Nugent, complete with amped-up blues licks, hilariously dumb song titles ("The Harder They Come (The Harder I Get)"), and plenty of impressively unrestrained soloing from Nugent himself. Nugent's only concession to the times may be "That's The Story of Love," which features a guest appearance from arena rock superstars Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora.
