Default BEST 80s "HAIR METAL BAND" ... Nominations Thread

This is the thread to list your nominations for Best 80s Hair Band of all
time. We will take nominations in this thread starting today, and go
through FRIDAY NIGHT @ 9: pm. At that time, we will shut down the
nominations, tally the points and determine who the top 16 Bands are
by your nominations and use that for Tournament seeding.

The guidelines for determining "HAIR METAL BAND" are blurred and left
to one's own opinion so the rules for the nominations are simple. If you
think a band / artist fits the "Hair Metal" "Glam Metal" etc..... tag, then
nominate them. This (as is all of our tournaments we've done before) is
all in fun, and for our members only, so whatever you guys feel is "Hair
Metal" is fine. .... If enough people agree with you, then those bands will
get multiple nominations at different places on their lists too, and they
will / or will not (if enough disagree), make the final 16.

* LIST HERE IN THIS THREAD .. YOUR TOP 10 HAIR BANDS BY PRIORITY.
PRIORITY WILL DETERMINE HOW MANY PIONTS EACH BAND RECEIVES.
Your #1 pick will receive 10 points .... Your #2 pick will receive 9 points...
#3 gets 8, #4 gets 7 etc...... Points will be tallied and at the end of the
week, we will seed the tournament by determining in order the top 16
bands.

In case of ties, we will run some short (48 hour tiebreaker polls) to break
up those spots before beginning the Tournament.

Somewhere around 9:pm each day, I will post a listing here in this thread
with the Top 16 bands according to the voting.

Default Re: BEST 80s "HAIR METAL BAND" ... Nominations Thread

I'm being generous with my definition of the genre, but all of these bands are mentioned on the Glam Metal wiki page.

1. GNR
2. The Cult
3. D.A.D. (Based mostly on one album that holds up extremely well)
4. Hanoi Rocks
5. Van Halen
6. Circus of Power
7. Def Leppard
8. LA Guns
9. Faster Pussycat
10. Smashed Gladys

Honorable mentions to Motley Cre, Skid Row, Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, WASP, Kix, Love/Hate, Dangerous Toys, and Junkyard. I'm going more by more recent taste for this stuff.

My list is based off of bands I liked rather than those that fit the "definition" of hair metal. You'll note that Warrant and Poison are not on my list. That's because they sucked, not because they're not "hair metal."

1. Cinderella
2. Motley Crue
3. Extreme
4. Ratt
5. Skid Row
6. LA Guns
7. Dokken
8. Stryper
9. Tesla
10. Winger

Exactly ! And I agree with your opinion of Hair metal bands.
I don't necessarily agree with some of your picks above, but because
in my opinion they sucked as well, but it's not my place to agree
with your picks on your list. I do however think you have a good
determination of what separates "Hair Metal / Glam Rock" bands of
the 80s vs Rock n Roll bands that sprang up during the 80s

Ratt , LA Guns, Winger etc.. were bands that I just could not seem
to like because they were (IMO) just trying to copy another band from
the 80s and the music was "cookie cutter" stuff. I know a lot of members
here have selected Guns n Roses as their most popular band along with
Def Leppord etc... There were some good R&B rock bands that came along
in the 80s as well, but I think a lot of people lumped them into the same
catagory as Hair metal bands. ..... INXS, Foreigner, Men At Work,
Guns n Roses, The Pretenders etc... were good Rock bands that came out
of the 80s. If I were pushed to choose a tag for Def Leppard, I'd also
call them a R&B Rock band instead of "Hair Metal" along with some of the
"new wave true metal bands" of the 80s Like Metalica and Judas Priest.

Good list up there bruh !

Was Living Colour hair/glam metal? Or Janes Addiction? I left out a few bands like this based on subtle cultural reasons, but I think an argument can be made for their inclusion. I chose to stick with bands you might see in Metal Edge and Circus magazines.

I know I put down KISS, but now that I think about it, can they really be included in an 80's Hair Band/Glam list? I mean those guy's are classic rock and came out in what 73 or 74?

I almost felt like I did them an injustice by adding them to my list.

This is tough cause 80s and metal make me think of 3 of my favorite bands: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Motorhead - neither of which I consider "Hair" and def not "Glam".

That leaves me with this....

1. Def Leppard
2. Motley Crue
3. Poison
4. GNR
5. Skid Row
6. Winger
7. Cinderella

I'll leave 3 spots open in case the first ones I mention are included after all.

Your choice.
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

^ I agree with you here, but I wasn't going to call you out on it either.


Apparently someone else agree with your original pick and had KISS on
their list too.
Kiss started touring about the same time Aerosmith did. (1972 / 73) and
made a resurgence (As Did Aerosmith) in the 80s. I wouldn't even begin
to call those bands "Hair Metal" .. they simply tried to fit the 80s style
of Rock at that time, to go over with the younger crowd. It worked well
for them financially, More so for Aerosmith than Kiss, but both bands
Morphed well during the mid to late 80s

Totally agree with you on that statement.

I'll count these and when / if you want to add three more later on, just
post them and remind me that you still had thee more selections open.

IF ANYONE WANTS TO EDIT / CHANGE THEIR LIST, FEEL FREE TO DO SO
BY POSTING YOUR CHANGES..... JUST LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE REMOVING
A BAND, WHO YOU ARE REMOVING AND WHO YOU WANT TO ADD.
