AllMusic Review by

Best of '80s Metal, Vol. 1 contains a selection of album-rock and Top 40 pop-metal hits of the mid-'80s, including Quiet Riot's "Bang Your Head (Metal Health)," Poison's "Nothin' But A Good Time," Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" and Ratt's "Round and Round." A couple of the songs on the collection are weak -- the inclusion of Krokus' cover of Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" is a little puzzling -- but on the whole, it's a terrific collection.
