EVH - Eruption.

AFAIK, this is the track that ushered in the 80's

Umm I think Stach's signature song is "Satch Boogie". Either that or "Always with me Always with you".

Hmm, I think Erotomania is his most representative.

For Vai I would choose For The Love Of God, altough I prefer Tender Surrender. :D

I always thought "Rising Force" was more of Yngwie's "signature" song

When it comes to vocal songs, I'd say yes, but for instrumentals it is definitly, IMO at least "Far Beyond the Sun" or "Black Star". FBtS is the piece that has been at more of his concerts than any though, even the ones he did with the New Japan Philharmonic a couple of years ago.

YJM's "Far Beyond the Sun" is one of the best neoclassical tunes ever!!! When I saw the music video for this song in the mid 80's I was in absolute awe.

Still am.....
