Default Re: BEST HAIR BAND TOURNAMENT: GUNS n ROSES (#1) vs SKID ROW (#9)

Best Band in this Tournament without a doubt ..... GUNS N ROSES

Only Hair metal band in this matchup ....... SKID ROW

GnR is (IMO) the best Rock Band of the post 70s and that says A LOT
considering there were some extremely good rock n roll bands that began
their careers from 1980 on. Huey Lewis and the News, The Pretenders,
INXS, U2, etc...... The goal of this tournament is to pick the best Hair
Band and to me, it's almost a slap in the face to label the original lineup
of Guns n Roses as a Hair Band. They were a band with Blood lines going
back to artists like The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, and Led Zeppelin,
Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix etc.....

Voting for Skid Row in this one. Not because I think they're better than
Guns N Roses by any means, but because voting for GNR in this matchup
would be like saying they were on the same level as Disco Music, Bubblegum
Rock, and ........ Hair Metal.

Going to buck the assumed vote and go with SR for the reason stated often during this tournament ;-)


EDIT: Spurt beat me by seconds with the reason

My opinion of "Hair Bands" (Hair "Metal", Glam Metal, etc...) was that it
had Roots that originated from KISS. Kiss was the Alpha point of that
whole wave of 80s Hair music, and KISS was basically a product of a lot
of different (direct ties to single artists, or small cult spit offs of) off beat
Rock styles. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley purposely built KISS to be
a mixture of Early British Glam Rock acts like David Bowie, Sweet, T Rex
etc... which influenced some of the hot club bands of the late 60s and
early 70s who Gene and Paul were watching (like The New York Dolls).
They didn't want the "Gay / Homosexual" overtones but liked the Make up,
and carnival atmosphere of the music. They were also into the Shock Rock
factor that Alice Cooper was taking on Tour and Kicking Ass with.
They decided to take Alice Cooper's show and mix it with the Theatrics
of Glam Rock and formed it all around Really Loud, Hard Driving Rock licks.

THIS (IMO) spawned the 80s wave of Hair Band Music When some of the
local bar bands saw what Gene and Paul did with KISS. Quiet Riot,
Motley Crue, RATT, soon followed and within a few years it was the
80s signature music. ... Unfortunately, it was so popular, so fast that it
created a market for Record Companies to latch onto (like Disco in the
70s) and the same thing that killed Disco, also destroyed Hair Rock.
Overplayed, Overhyped, OVERDONE. The bands that originated the sound
and took what KISS created and did well with in the beginning, turned
into yet another dinosaur. Some of the early stuff was good, the latter stuff was
simply a washed out copy of the original.

GnR had big hair, they were a band. IMO that counts Hair Band.

And they were better then Skid Row. So GnR gets my vote.

Voted G&R, but agree, Skid Row is a true Hair band.

Ax-hole did have his hair poofed up for the Welcome to the Jungle video, so they at least were originally lumped into the genre.
