Best 80s Glam/Metal/Hard Rock Band?

Whatever you call the genre, which band was the best, or at least your favorite?

Def Leppard.

Def Leppard!!! fo' sure!

Much better and longer lasting than any of those hair bands like Poison, Motley Crüe, Ratt & what not.

Def Leppard here, too. Was supposed to see them again last summer, but I sold my tickets for more U2 tickets.

Def Leppard for the fun factor, but in actuality I think Poison was the most talented of the bunch. They just had a terrible, terrible look, and song titles like "Unskinny Bop" didn't really help either. Doesn't change the fact that Every Rose Has Its Thorn is a great song regardless of any genre.

Warrant is one of the worst bands of all time, hands down.

I can't think of anything except GNR. I hated almost all the rest of the metal/glam/hard rock bands from the '80s. I don't even like GNR that much, but they had a few great songs.

Interesting - I've always had the opposite perception of both bands, that DL were the more serious and talented of the two, whereas Poison were more "fluff" and fun. And I was a bigger DL fan back in the day than I care to admit.

I do agree with the Warrant assessment, however.
