    Hair Bands

    I have to admit I've got a big soft spot for the late 80 and early 90 hair bands. I've got a Poison Greatest Hit's CD in the player right now and am having a great day.

    Some of my favorites are Motley Crue, G & R, Def Leppard, White Snake, Metallica, Night Ranger, AC/DC.

    Grunge music was okay, but I remember one of the hair bands talking about how most of their music was about having fun while Grunge music tended to be the opposite.

    I have a lot of fond memories tied to listening to this stuff...

    Re: Hair Bands

    Metallica, Guns 'n' Roses, and AC/DC are NOT hair bands, IMO. To me, hair bands are those groups who played glam rock. Some of my faves:

    Poison
    Ratt
    LA Guns
    Slaughter
    Motley Crue
    Kix
    Twisted Sister
    Warrant
    Babylon AD

    I'll probably get killed for this, but I still listen to the Crue.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Forgot about Ratt. There was a time I listened to them a lot. Never got into Twisted Sister that much.

    Re: Hair Bands

    Guns and Roses is the worst band in the world. This statement is soley based on the fact that Axel Rose has a TERRIBLE voice.

    Love me some Shout At The Devil.

    BTW - Poison = worst band ever. Even by hair band standards.

    Re: Hair Bands

    I always kind of liked Cinderella. Obviously the Crue set the standard for these bands though...
