Post your favorite Youtube Classic Rock and Traditional Metal videos from the late 60's through the mid 80's.

NO alternative, punk, grunge, thrash, death, black, NWOBHM, punk, speed, grindcore, industrial, nu, etc.

ONLY Classic Rock and Traditional/Classic/Melodic Metal.

I've got nothing against the other genres, but I'd prefer they appear in separate threads, to keep this thread from getting annoyingly long.

Feel free to comment on the selections of others, give reputation points for standout songs etc. Please refrain from harsh criticisms of songs and bands you don't like.

This thread is intended for enjoyment and discovery, NOT arguments.

I'm going to throw y'all a curveball.....here's Kamelot. Not 60s-80s, but melodic metal, and very good melodic metal at that. This is probably their biggest hit, and probably their most commercial sounding song. It was a pretty big hit overseas. The female vocalist is Simone Simons from the band Epica. The song is called "The Haunting." Enjoy.

Wow. I guess my crappy little fanboy posting of Kamelot killed the thread.
Nah! :)

Though it wasn't what I was looking for, it's a decent tune. Certainly not "crappy".

There just aren't many knowledgeable classic rock fans left around anymore.

I like the Rock and Roll Circus.
Please note: the guitar player is Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath.
