If you think they fit the mold then that is your opinion and you've got a
right to express it.
IMO, I'd say Living Colour was. I would not however call Jane's addiction
a Hair Metal band. They were a harder edged new wave Rock band (IMO)
similar to The Beasty Boys. Both bands sort of came along at the same
time (right at the end of the 80s and just ahead of "THE GRUNG" invasion.
Again, that is my opinion only, and we kind of left this open to your
own determination of what Hair Metal is
