I had brought the little money I had on the family travel north through Canada trip in the early 80's. Metal was my only interest.  Metal on metal then specifically..  Didn't want to buy a cheap tape to play immediately,  I wanted a vinyl album to clean and record to tape but there was no choice.  sorry edit please...

Edit:  I had never heard of them before stopping at the, gas station?  It had to be a gas station, when I saw the tape,  they were obviously metal. Had to have it. Then riding in the car Walkman blowing my mind.  I remember eventually feeling confused because they were mostly very heavy but they had songs about girls too.  I know their history of gaps after key albums but I believe that confusion is why they didn't succeed more.  But I love them for it.
