Default Re: BEST HAIR METAL BAND TOURNAMENT: Poison (#7) vs Tesla (#10)

One Word Discussion:

TESLA

Not even a contest (IMO). More musical talent, Better song writing,
"The IT Factor" ....... Poison was a band the symbolized all that had
grown wrong with the Hair Music craze of the 80s. Tesla was a band that
actually had appeal and good musicians. Unfortunately, Hair Metal was not
about that in the later 80s. It was about which band could fluff up their
hair higher, look good in glitter and get 13-15 year old girls wet in the
crotch by walking out on the stage. The Hair metal wave was coming
to an end when Poison came along, and the age group that
made it popular a few years earlier was in their late teens / early 20s and
had matured in there musical tastes as well. Metallica, Megadeath,
Iron Maiden, Judas Priest etc... had replaced the big hair and glitter
covered spandex. Unfortunately, the talented bands that were labeled "HAIR BANDS"
a few years earlier, were swept to the curb in the mass exodus, and
we were left with bands like KIXX, Poison, Autograph etc.... in the latter
stages of this era. Tesla was one of the good ones that got labeled and
tossed aside.... Sadly
