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

    Motley Crüe, Poison, Def Leppard. Loved em all really, they quit making music after the 80ties.

    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.

    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)

    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! :rofl:

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

    Alice Cooper put on a good show too!

    Oddly enough, if you know anything about Metallica...yeah, The whole Whiskey A Go-Go, LA scene. They were Hair Metal but they positioned themselves as the "Anti hair metal, Hair metal band" but they were NOT glam. They were thrash all the way.
