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

Going to go with Tesla on this one also, even though Poison more closely mirrors (har!) my Hair Metal criteria. Primarily because I could never stand Poison back in the day despite liking most Hair Metal.

Oh, and this seems as good a place as any to foist upon an unsuspecting Cockytalk Nation - back in college a friend and I would come up with parody lyrics to various songs on a variety of subjects, teeth being one of them far more often than they should. Anyway, he was much better at it but on rare occasions I came up with some that I thought were pretty good. Here's my take on the first verse and chorus of Signs:

Well the sign said
shrunken mouthed toothless people
need not apply
So I put some dentures in my mouth
and I went in to ask him why
He said you look like a fine young man
with a full set of teeth, you'll do
So I pulled out my caps
and said "Imagine that,
me chewing my food"

Teeth teeth
Not everyone's got teeth
Slip and fall and smash 'em
Be causing you grief
Chew this don't chew that
Can't you use your tee-eeth?




The only other line I could come up with was the obvious one right before the bridge -

Well the sign says you gotta have dental insurance to get inside




But I believe the damage was already done

Back in the 80s, I went to a Poison concert primarily for the opening band, Tesla. Poison, to me, was a kiddie bop band with an edge, and Tesla was a powerful, kick ass force. I worked in a record store when both hit the charts and when I got a look Poison's debut album cover, I seriously was like, "check out these chicks".

The first time I heard this song it absolutely blew my socks off.


Then I heard this toe-tapper..


Love this song..

Tesla, without a doubt.

Those of you voting for Poison should be ashamed of yourselves.

Without a doubt, Poison is THE stereotypical hair metal band. If you base it on that criteria alone, Poison should win this easily. They took the look and sound of hair metal band to the extreme. From a hair metal band standpoint, this shouldn't be close. Poison is probably one of the top 3 hair metal bands out there - they fit the sound and look of this genre perfectly.

But then you factor in the music part. Personally, I like some of Poison's stuff. I think CC Deville is a great guitarist. Musically, Tesla is a better band. And guess where Tesla is from? Right here where I live - Sacramento, California!
