post your favorite hair metal song
 
generally i'm very glad the days of hair metal are gone, but there are still a few songs that i love to hear.

I think Hysteria by Def Leppard must be my favorite:

Kickstart My Heart exemplifies the few good qualities of passable hair metal, such as rocking the fuck out, combined with a pinch of catchy hooks and a dash of guitars sounding like car engines.

So basically Kickstart My Heart is the greatest thing ever, almost.

Hair Metal sucked a little bit more.


I'd say: Hair Metal is usually applied to bands that were more about image - Poison, Warrant, Trixter. Heavy Metal was more of a musical genre. I don't know that I'd consider most of the hair metal bands as actually playing heavy metal music - Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax - those were heavy metal bands to me. But ask 50 different people and you'll get 50 different answers. That's why we have VH1.

Bands like GnR and Def Leppard are usually lumped into Hair Metal, but I don't think that's accurate. They were more hard rock, and GnR was almost punk at times, bluesy at other times. Rarely metal though.

Historically speaking no. In the 80's there was no such term as hair metal or glam metal etc. It was all heavy metal. Hair metal as a 90's creation coming along later to differentiate it from acts like Metallica.

This is a bit of a strange thing to debate but I absolutely remember calling it glam in the 80's. Glam rock, hair bands. We used those terms, especially in the late 80's.

lazarus 11-16-2007 05:43 PM

I'll second that. We were making fun of Warrant, Bon Jovi, Poison, Winger, Skid Row, etc. as glam rock/cheese metal/hair metal long before the 90's rolled around. Poison's first album came out when I was a freshman in High School in 1986, same with Slippery When Wet if I'm not mistaken.

Guns 'n' Roses were never considered part of glam rock because they weren't meticulously coiffed, and had an element of danger that wasn't present in ANY of those other bands.

The real question is how to classify Motley Crue. Personally I feel they sold out with Girls Girls Girls and lost any credibility they may have had with the "satanic" Shout at the Devil and follow up Theatre of Pain. A less flashy glam rock band but watered-down and musically similar to all the rest.

Def Leppard is a strange one--they're not really hard enough to be metal, but they had these cool album covers and didn't really sound like the other glam bands. Plus, stuff like Photograph from 1983 was just as poppy as the later stuff. They're really more like Van Halen than anything else, which I guess does make them hard rock.

Apparently Wikipedia agrees with me. I just checked and you have Poison classified as Glam, Def Lep as hard rock. Then again they consider Winger "rock" so they're not exactly the authority.

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...
