Yes, yes!!! And then we have to add David Lee Roth 1986 - 1988 into the Hair Metal genre. With Vai as the lead axeman, and Billy Sheenan on bass... Dave looked like a drag queen during this time...but not as bad as the sacred Ozzy during the "Ultimate Sin" and "No Rest For The Wicked" period...he looked like your grandma or something.

And as much as I'd like to lump AC/DC into the Hair Metal genre, they are a working man's band and do not belong in this genre...

Still I nominate Mötley Crüe as the undisputed Kings of Hair Metal...someone give me an argument why they shouldn't be...

I just realized I'm committing the capital crime of not having "Pour Some Sugar on Me" on my iPod, and the Def Leppard version is not available for purchase on iTunes. Would someone be so kind and send it to jesusgirl06@yahoo.com ?

If you grew up in the 80's that song should have been issued to you automatically.

Is Def Leppard hair metal? Really?

What about Iron Maiden then?

Can I Play With Madness?!!

...or The Clairvoyant.

I'd say that Maiden are just metal, sans the hair.

Speaking of Def Leppard, please don't go the way of Bon Jovi!

Their new single, Nine Lives featuring Tim McGraw.

Kinda catchy, regardless of McGraw's appearance. It reminds me a lot of Armageddon It.

They've only had one album since then, haven't they? Or was their covers album included in there?

I dunno. I haven't bought anything by them since Euphoria, and I think I listened to that one once. Prior to that, I have their entire catalogue.

ETA - Just checked, that one album after X was their covers album.

Lep is "Hair Metal"...good gawd look at Steve Clarks hair in "Love Bites" for proof.

Actually Poison and Lep turned into "Chick Metal"...it rocked, but it was a little too girl friendly...not that there's anything wrong with that.

Maiden is NOT Hair Metal in anyway, shape or form. Maiden is "Classical Metal"...with those intricate guitar riffs, and songs of Demons, Indians, and flying Icaruses...

^^ Yeah I heard that the covers album was really good! Haven't personally listened to it myself but what little I heard of X sounded way too poppy for their own good. Euphoria freaking rocked though! I can't get enough of that album!

True but Maiden is so damn cheesy that they blur the boundary between hair metal and heavy metal. I cannot take their albums seriously like I do say, Metallica's albums.

Actually, I haven't really liked much that they've done since Retro Active. That's the last album I ever spent any amount of time listening to. I think that I just sort of got turned off of their genre around the mid 90's, and stopped paying attention, really.

I'd be curious to hear their covers album too, I looked it up and their are some great songs on there.

They just postponed a show in this area a few weeks ago, one I nearly bought tickets to for old times sake. I heard about the postponement and looked them up. After just a couple of listens, I do have to say I like the new single more than anything I've heard by them since the early 90's. Sounds like a return to their classic sound, even if they've included a dollop of nu-country in there, to make it palatable for their aging fans.


Good assessment, Reg
