Best Hair Band Tiebreaker Poll: #14 Seed WARRENT or LA GUNS
 
This is just a simple tiebreaker poll to determine each of these bands final
seeding. Vote for your favorite between these two bands:


WARRENT




LA GUNS

With this (like a few other matchups when the tournament starts) one to
me it's a tossup. Two bands that I have heard of, but never really formed
a like or dislike for. I have seen LA Guns live before and wasn't impressed
with them when they opened for KISS in one of their shows in Greenville.
Warrant was a band that just never really "Clicked" with me when I saw
their videos or heard them on the radio. ... Of these two I actually voted
for Warrant simple because of that one live impression I had of LA Guns.
Might have had the same impression of Warrant had I seen them live too,
but since I didn't I'm just picking them here not because I have anything
good to say about them, it's just because I didn't have anything good to
say about LA GUNS based on that one live show.

WARRENT for this tiebreaker pick for me.

Gotta go with Warrant (not Warrent btw ;-) ) for the "Cherry Pie" factor - my last name is Cherry for those who didn't read/are trying hard to forget my nomination post :thumbsup:

WARRENT for this tiebreaker pick for me.

spurt when did you see LA GUNS. the reason I ask is they had so many different lineups that you could have seen one version one year and then the next year a different. I always found it interesting how intertwined LA GUNS, GUNS n ROSES, and FASTER PUSSYCAT were.

I saw KISS so many times in Greenville, Columbia and Atlanta that I can't
remember a date or year. I know they opened with KISS at the old G'vlle
Memorial Auditorium when KISS was without makeup. It was the year
following the Tour I saw KROKUS open for them there, and one of the
area workers (guy named Waters) fell through the roof trying to put out
a small fire on a catwalk and they had to evacuate the auditorium for a
short time between acts. I'm guessing that was 1983/4 so it would have
been '84/85 (guessing)

There were a lot of those Hair bands that morphed over time and some
got much better while others got even worse. Autograph is one that I
can recall that I saw early on. The music was cookie cutter / bad music
that they wrote to fill the album that spawned their one hit (turn on the
radio). A few years later they opened for Van Halen in Columbia on the
1984 tour and I was just there to see Van Halen and didn't care about
even seeing Autograph again.... much to my surprise they actually put on
a half decent show, and had "matured" some. Don't know if they changed
personnel or if they just changed their style, but it was vastly different
for the better.

I sang karaoke one night with Tracii Guns.

So LA Guns.

Most of what Warrant did was shit.

He was.

He did 'Stone in Love' by Journey and killed it.

Both of them pretty much sucked, but at least Warrant had decent musicicans.

I know the drummer from Warrant, but the guy from LA Guns died. Both bands were horrible. Man, this one's tough.
