    The 25 Best Hair Metal Bands

    [size=13pt]The 25 Best Hair Metal Bands[/size]

    Posted Tue Apr 29 2:22pm PDT by Rob O'Connor in List Of The Day

    Through reckless use of hairspray, spandex, make-up, just plain goofy stage moves and even sillier videos, ‘80s hair-metal bands made themselves the butts of some pretty obvious jokes. Like any genre, hair metal had its share of lousy bands and inept performers, bland careerists and overconfident idiots. But there were some bands worth remembering.

    Brings back some memories.....

    )7. Ozzy Osbourne
    Never really considered Ozzy as a hair band.
    ;D

    1) Guns n' Roses
    One of my favorite bands as well.
    Just like the Oz, don't think of them as a hair band.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: The 25 Best Hair Metal Bands

    Is he ranking them #1 through #25 based on the greatness of the band or by their hair?

    If it's by greatness of the band, he totally screwed the pooch, as Marr would say, by ranking Aerosmith at #5.

    Hands downs as far as music is concerned, Aerosmith tops them all.

    GNR is probably my fav band right now, great music, alright in the hair department.

    (disclaimer:
    I absolutely HATE the new GNR, i'll have nothing to do with them.
    They sound like a bad cover band)

    btw, here's a newer pic of how cool axl looks now.
    (note to self, if Axl ever releases Chinese Democracy, make sure to download it and not buy it)

    don't mean to turn this into a GNR thread so, back to what i was talking about.

    as for Ozzy, pretty good music, not too wild in the hair department



    also, Why no van halen?

    There is no GnR, GnR broke up.
    Although I did hear there was a GnR cover band headed by Axel Rose.

    He's not counting the (much greater) 70's stuff of Aerosmith, only their output in the 80s.

    Read the comments below the article though...he gets blasted big time for his picks...and rightfully so.
