I would not call GNR hair metal. Poison, Ratt, yeah. But GNR was more about music than glam.

Quiet Riot and Twisted Sister. Not because they were the best but because they had the anthems of my early youth.

Scorpions where probably the "best" band of that genre and era.

Well I kinda could see that. They were not really a "glam" band

I will admit I am a sucker for that kind of music. It is just good fun stuff, looking through my playlist of that era: Ratt, Poison, Warrant, Quiet Riot, Bon Jovi and Whitesnake were some of the standouts.

I remember Def Leppard (if they are considered "Hair Metal") was in my opinion a notch above those other bands.

However, Motley Crue epitomized the whole scene, and just ruled.

80s bands, easy Iron Maiden victory.

But I still have a soft spot for bands like, Crue, Ratt, Scorpions etc......fond memories of the 80s....

1985 (I was at the Houston show that tour, 7th row on the floor. Could not hear for 2 days. I think I was stoned for at least 1 day just off the residue smoke at the show)


2008


Freaking staying power baby! Steve Harris is the most badass rock bass player in history. And a song about shooting vile Nazi scumbags out of the sky during the battle of Britain....sweet.

Lots of good ones posted already. Loved Poison, Motley Crue, Quiet Riot, and Twisted Sister



Not sure if they are considered a hair metal band, but I loved Skid Row too....

Although Guns N Roses does in fact seem to be classified as a glam metal band, they seemed a little "different" than the ones I listened to. Living through the era, it seemed like some of us wore Def Leppard/Poison/Motley Crue t-shirts... and the GNR fans didn't hang out with us, they had their own group.


PS...I was reading through the list of glam metal bands.
Anybody remember Britney Fox or White Lion?
I had forgotten about them!

Saw their Maiden England show in Atlanta this year. They've still got it.

Alice Cooper put on a good show too!

Yeah, I don't really think of Guns N Roses as a hair metal band. They had hair for sure, but the music was different.

As for the question of the thread, I've gotta go with Motley Cre.

I consider what you consider Glam to be Hair Metal. Your criteria for Hair Metal seems to be hair. A noble position, but if you just listen to the bands without looking at pictures of the band members, there's a pretty big difference in what most people consider "Hair Metal" and bands like Metallica and Guns N Roses. GnR comes closer than Metallica by a long shot, but still not what I'd consider Hair Metal.

Ole Vince is doing gigs at the Beach these days. We saw him at the Pirate Festival in Savannah couple of weeks back.

I get that, most people would disagree with you about GNR, I do. Again, Hair metal poster children. Music, look, style.

With Metallica, it is more complicated.

GnR were not really hair metal IMO, they were a totally different feel to them when they came out. That being said I think all of the sub categories of Metal occupy a fine line of difference these days. Just 80s metal is what I use to describe it all.

I remember buying Kill Em All when it first came out on cassette based on a friends recommendation. They were very unknown then. Only cassette I ever wore out playing it. Still my favorite album by them for the memories.
