You guessed it! This is a discussion about Hair Metal!

Some of you may not have been around back when this was a popular form of music and may only be familiar with current groups that take a tongue and cheek approach to the genre. Some of you may very well have been around at its peak! Some may hate it - others (like me!) may love it!

Guitar Heroes were abound in those days! To me... that's what made Hair Metal great!

You had (in no particular order):

  • Vito Bratta from White Lion
  • C. C. DeVille from Poison
  • Slash from Guns n' Roses
  • George Lynch from Dokken
  • Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme
  • Scotti Hill from Skid Row
  • Dave "Snake" Sabo from Skid Row
  • John Norum from Europe
  • Reb Beach from Winger
  • And so many more that I can't even think of right now!

So share your thoughts or just share your favorite hair metal song!

I'd love to hear from you!

Share the music with me by uploading a video or just give me the name of the artist/band and the song title!

Aloha!

I wasn't a particularly huge fan of hair metal, but at least these guys had fun. They were rock stars!

I was a big fan of Def Leppard back then. I saw them back in 1982 before Rick Allen had the accident. Back then they opened for Billy Squier (remember him? No? This was a big hit for him...)


In 87 when they had their comeback I saw them again in Hartford, that was a good show. This was the big number.


Throughout the 80's I didn't stray very far from my power pop roots. The main stay for me throughout that era was Cheap Trick, and they still are to this day;

I don't think Guns and Roses are Hair Metal. I think they just got lumped in because they're from LA.

But if we are counting them, they would be my favorite by far, the rest of those bands suck/do nothing for me
