I remember Night Ranger and "Sister Christian". From school parties...it's not unknown...It is just that we are so very old...one student of mine, uni student that is, recently in class argued that albeit she knew what Indiana Jones was, she did not like it as she preferred watching something like "Captain America" because "Indiana Jones" was, in her Words, "Like, you know, super old".... llllllllll bibibibibi ananananan

So basically, he was calling his sister a slut?

The Koreans once gave me five minutes notice - I didn't know what to do with the extra time.

What?  I had that hair before Night Ranger formed and I still have it now.

These are not mutually exclusive choices. I've heard of Night Ranger AND you are old.

Night Ranger was a little popular back in 1983-1984.   The problem is, that unless you actually lived in the 80s (I was 18 at the time) you probably wouldn't have heard of them.   They basically had one or two songs that were popular for a few months.

Because there are 80s bands that are far more important, or popular, than Night Ranger (such as U2 for example), someone who didn't live in the 80s would probably have never heard of them.  I would say that Night Ranger was a little more popular than say, Devo, but not much more.

a bit of both, IMHO. The 80s/big hair era did see a lot of forgetable bands.

Night Ranger were a good band and Sister Christian was a good song. I'm old enough to remember it very clearly because it was playing on the radio once when I had a 4 or 5 minute period of lucidity back in the 80's.
