My introduction to the Big Boys was through skateboarding and the Thrasher skate rock compilation tapes, volume one and two. Granted back then I pretty much loved every band on those first couple Thrasher comps, but once I picked up "No Matter How Long The Line..." at a record store in Phoenix AZ, summer 1987, I was a fan. Eventually I got my hands on "Lullabies Help The Brain Grow", and that quickly fell into regular rotation as well.
With this poll it was obvious that many of the readers either weren't familiar with the Big Boys or didn't care enough to vote, but really it didn't matter. For me it's just fun to mix it up and maybe even shine a little light on a band that a few people might not have noticed otherwise.
Thanks to those that voted and for those unfamiliar, check out this video of "No", the first track off, "No Matter How Long The Line...", one of my personal favorites. -Tim DCXX
