Dokken was a meat and potato rock n roll band, period. They hit it big for a short time on MTV with the video 'In my Dreams', followed by 'It's not Love'. Belive it or not a cheap and worthless black and white fuzzy video was shot for 'The Hunter' that played on Headbanger's Ball maybe two times.
Under Lock and Key is a good definition of what Dokken is and what they could have been. When you hear a song like 'Lightning Strikes' you say these guys can really rock, but when you hear stuff like Slippin' Away, you laugh at them for being a cheezy hair band. I don't know of anyone who detests Dokken, but I don't think they were anyone's favorite band. Here's the best way to send them up.
When a Poison or Warrant fan put them on, they were into 'the hard stuff', however a Slayer or Anthrax fan could play them without being embarrassed.
Musically, there's nothing better than "Under Lock + Key;" mid '80's music hit its peak on this treasured masterpiece. George Lynch is a mastermind guitarist, but he never got along with Ronnie James Dio, and thus, Dokken as we knew them tragically ceased to exist by '87 - a sad day in metal lore. Nonetheless, this headbanging piece of work is still with us, influencing the likes of today's bands, seminal rockers like Blink-182, Def Leppard, Velvet Revolver and the new Guns 'n' Roses.
"Unchain the Night" and "Jaded Heart" are especially mind-bending tracks that will change you.
