I voted for Def Leppard In this one.

I didn't have DF on my list of nominations because I'm still not convinced
they were a "hair metal" band by my definition, even though they fit the
description "more" than they do a true Rock act. I really liked most of what
they did and they have my deepest respect in staying together after
the tragedies they suffered during the 80s and into the early 90s. I've
heard some of their latest stuff (post 2000) and I think Joe Elliot sounds
better now than he did in the 80s once his voice "matured". They don't
have the "IT" factor anymore, but then again, what band that stayed
together for more than 10/15 years does ?

Never liked Warrant at all. The videos, the music ..... nothing about them
stands out to me.

DEF LEPPARD gets the vote

Gotta go with Warrant on this one ONLY because I don't consider DL "hair metal" - music-wise DL wins by a HUGE margin

I'm not sure DL is a hair band either. Talent wise, DL is light years ahead of Warrant. Please don't vote for Warrant based on one video. To this day, guys in DL (despite Joe Elliot's high range vocals being toast) have some of the best voices for backing vocals for any band of their era.

DL is probably separate from any particular metal or hard rock scene, but during the Hysteria period, the band co-mingled with this world so much that I don't have any problem with including them. In truth, "hair metal" isn't a very useful category since there were a lot of scenes in different cities with distinct flavors and some glam components in common. I tried not to be too restrictive about the label's application and included samples from all over (LA, NYC, London, Finland, Denmark, etc) in my list. It made it easier to find bands that I truly liked--and music that I still listen to in most cases.

Def Leppard gets my vote, even if they aren't considered hair metal, because Warrant sucks.

These were the winners of the first round matchups. We still have three more
weeks of first round matchups to go before we move on to the second round
matchups. Cinderella and Def Leppard are just the first winners in this round.


Looking at the Bracket for the Tournament, Cinderella will be matched
against the winner of the BON JOVI / DOKKEN matchup, and Def Leppard
will go against the winner of the RATT / WHITESNAKE matchup within the
next few weeks.
