Exactly!!! Def Leppard was more hard rock. They did have some hair metal elements and a fair share of cheese but they also adapted with the times when the 90s rolled over. Slang sounded more like hard rock than hair metal.

As for Guns n Roses, it was the beast that killed hair metal with the totally badass Welcome To The Jungle. If they didn't kill it, they at least took a great shot at it... and eventually Smells Like Teen Spirit killed it.

Okay, topic at hand...

Fav hair metal song:

Carrie by Europe?

Nothing but a Good Time by Poison is fun even in 2007. Clear winner.

I knew there was a reason I liked you, elevated.

I've only recently started liking Def Leppard. There's a lot I skip on their hits record, but there's a lot that's -worthy.

Those boys had good ol' pop sensibilities and knew their way around a great chorus with good harmonies.

Whitesnake is weird because they were around in the late 70's, but totally fit right into the glam rock scene when their self-titled comeback came out in 86/87. Here I Go Again was actually a rerecorded version of a pretty old song (as was album opener Cryin' in the Rain).

One of their older albums, Slide It In, is really good and doesn't sound dated compared to much of the music from the glam period.

Much of 'hair metal' was glorified pop music with the singers screaming unneccessarily and some guitar distortion.

Metallica is light years away from that. Old-school Metallica...'Ride The Lighting', 'Master Of Puppets', '...And Justice For All', that's real metal.
