Don Dokken: Hey, Los Angeles, are you ready to ROCK?!?

Comedian: Uh, no, uh, actually I'm NOT ready to rock, Mr. Dokken. In fact, Dokken, you sukken. Get a jobben, you slobben."

When Don plays county fairs and dive bars these days, he requires the venue to introduce him as "The legendary Don Dokken" or he won't go on.

Dokken? Really? Is this the best we could do this week?

As a hair metal enthusiast, I can honestly say that that's the gayest thing I've ever seen, and I accidentally watched 3 seconds of gay porn once.

When was the last time we had a SHMHC?  It seems like months since I last saw one.  And Dokken?  Really?!?!

Agreed with leftymcrighty.  Brilliant guitarist.  Horrible videos.

Once again SHMHC devolves into "THIS totally unrelated band is much better than the band in the link".

LAME! LAME! LAME!

I just remembered why I hated these dorks the first time around.

Dialectic: ...and heavy metal did not age well.


How's the King of Pop holding up?

Back in '87/'88 I saw a high school,classmate of mine in a tiny, local grocery store in Noethern California. With him was an older guy all hair-metaled out. I laughed inside at the "wanna be" as I was still in my high school phase of The Cure, The Smiths etc.

It wasn't until maybe a year or two later that I found out the "wanna be" was a drummer in some band called Dokken and my classmate as his younger brother.

I know, I know...my one brush with fame and I laughed at it in a snarky teenage way.

That took me back.  Breaking the Chains is a seminal "metal" song to me, by virtue of being included on Masters of Metal, a comp that was my second or third cassette purchase after being converted in the summer of '84 by a Motley Crue video.
/don't know when I'd seen the video, though.  That was pretty Spinal...

Okay, fine. Let's have a 1000 post thread discussing nothing but Dokken. And really, this is Fark. Can a thread actually devolve any further from where it began?

Once again, a thread that's supposed to be about metal.... wait for it.... ISN'T from the get-go.

There was a poster of Dokken on my bedroom wall circa '88, and Mick Brown was wearing a black shirt with the Batman logo. So I always think of Batman when ol' Wild Mick pops up.

Dokken was too safe for most people to really get crazy about. There was no element of danger to what they did. Not even when they did "Dream Warriors" from Nightmare On Elm Street 3.

But whatever, they were just tryin' to make it. Respect.

/was surprised they made it to SHMHC too

There are some damn fine casual Friday outfits in that video..I bet someone would tell me, "those pants are a bit snug, I can read your male."

Saw Dokken on the Monsters of Rock tour back in 87 or 88. Three songs into their set and the crowd was chanting for Metallica to come back out. Five minutes later a helicopter flew overhead and James was hanging out of it waving, so I spent the rest of their set hitting on rocker chicks.

/Twenty minutes the Scorps came out and things were better.

I was a somewhat-fan of Dokken back in the day. Yes, I was made fun of, but I didn't care.

This was Dokken's most iconic song, not "Breaking the Chains."

Heh, poodle rock.

Not Dream Warriors from Nightmare on Elm Street part 3?

I'll just leave this right here.

Not sure why "Breaking the Chains" became the hit.  "Paris is Burning" was infinitely better.

Any time someone thinks this, they simply need to recalibrate by watching this (NSF...): http://youtu.be/Qc1xG2-ww48

A sealed Cirith Ungol album is the best way to listen to them.

I dig George Lynch's playing.

That is all.

Whatthefark: Saw Dokken on the Monsters of Rock tour back in 87 or 88. Three songs into their set and the crowd was chanting for Metallica to come back out.

Ah yes.  The tour when Metallica opened for Dokken...

/really, not enough farks were given about that
//spent Dokken's set in line for a Coke
///despite my post above, wasn't really that into Dokken
////especially relative to MOP-era Metallica
