Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too garbage-y to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog each song from the beginning to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.


To say we barely conducted a Rockers’ Block with Don Dokken would be a large understatement. The band was literally supposed to be on stage at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, IL, while we serving up Dokken the first of five songs from his extensive past. With Dokken in the books, we’re well on our way to testing the memories of virtually every hair-metal band from the ’80s. In addition to Dokken, we’ve now done Def Leppard, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Cinderella, Kix, Queensryche, Tesla, Lita Ford, Krokus and Judas Priest (ok, not really hair metal). Go here to see/hear them all, plus many more.

Curious to see how Dokken did? Well, you can remain so until you watch this. Hint: He didn’t do well.

P.S. The full songs are below, if you think you can guess faster than Dokken did…
