"Hair Metal"

Tue Feb 04, 2003 2:14 pm

Laugh if you want but I like Hair Metal along with classic metal and new metal. What is your favorite Hair Metal band? Mine would have to be Motley Crue.

I also really like classic metal like Black Sabath(ozzy) and while disturbed is a newer band they sound a lot like "classic metal" and I think they are great.

DAMN IT, YOU BEAT ME! ! ! ! >> Sad  Laugh out loud

I was about to start a thread about this!  Smile

My favorite would be Ratt.
I like 1980s glam rock metal. It's fun to listen to and they carried the torch of what rock was all about. Sex, drugs and rock & roll. There videos had hot chicks and they all had a good time.
I was living in Los Angelas during those years. It was fun going to the Roxy, Trubador and The Whiskey back then. Hair metal kicks grunge musics ass by a long shot.!
I mean it!
I never understood all the anger and rage of the those rich Seattle punks with major record label deals.

Other great hair metal bands were:
KISS (80s era)
Whitesnake
Motley Crue
Vinnie Vincent
Warlock
Night Ranger
Heart (80s era)
Skid Row
Def Leppard
Gorky Park
Bring back the Concorde

Just be careful of what you call a "hair band"! Poison, Warrant yes. Skid Row, Tesla , no.
It really bugs me that late 80's/early 90's pop-rock always get ragged on. They did nothing to deserve all the bad press and people laughing whenever they're brought up. Lot's of awesome bands such as Extreme, Skid Row, Tesla and Mr. Big got shafted by being called hair metal and the negative conotations that go along with it.


That said there's no question of the glam/hair value of the following record:




However calling this next one "hair metal" is a load of &!%$.

I should add that rock in the 90's should have been shaped by Skid Row and Extreme, as critics in around 1991 predicted they would.

This is a cool thread. I don't like the fact that it's widely accepted that this kind of music as cheesy.
Let's give credit wear credit is due. It's a shame that rock historians discredit this era and is an abomination that Pearl Jam & Nirvana will go down in history as more important bands.  Sad

Many glam rocker hair bands had guitarist that were almost un-touchable in terms of their talents. To play solos at warp speed over powerful drumbeats is something those grunge punks could never do.
I think 'hair metal' deserves some credit as an important era in rock history.

Personally I am a 1970s guy at heart and I like the more tasteful rhythms and melodies from bands of that time (Styx, Doobies, Chicago, ELO, Kansas, etc).

True enough Superfly. So many of bands were discredited because they were "hair bands" and had some really great talent.

Well I guess Dokken would qualify as hair metal, good guitarist (Don Dokken)but looking like a bad cartoon of his own self.

1. Smoking in the boy's room
2. The song Tommy Lee was humming in...ahem...for his wife on that homemade video Big grin

I'll admit to being a Slaughter fan back in the day. I also pretended to like Metallica (even though they aren't "hair") but if the truth will be told, they were/are too hard for me. Good old KBER 101 introduced me to all that stuff. I don't really listen to it anymore, but it's still one of my radio presets.

However, that same radio station introduced me to legitimant rock, such as Rush and Led Zeppelin, which made me switch radio stations to Z93 (KLZX), the classic rock station. I bought my first 'Dead album in 8th grade.

Unfortunately, the great Z93 went country (puke!) and changed to KBUL 93. So now we have the edgy-er Rock 99.1, and Arrow 103.5. I have to alternate between the two-- 99.1 can be a little too hard for me (although they play a lot of 'Zeppelin), and Arrow can be a little too soft--I can't stand Elton John or Billy Joel, but for some reason, Arrow thinks that they are great. So I have to switch stations every now and then.

I'm with you except for Chicago.

The difference between Nu-metal and hair metal is that many hair metal bands had talent, whilst most nu-metal bands don't.

My favourite would have to be Dokken, I have their least commercial-sounding album which is also their best and heaviest (back for the attack), 'Mr. Scary' is a really good instrumental...

I don't like many hair metal bands, but some did have their moments, others that I'd hazard a mention would be...

Skid Row
Ratt
XYZ
Slaughter..

ok thats it lol.. Big grin

Hey, I agree that there were some great musicians in a lot of those so-called "hair bands", and in the beginning, their music was awesome, but the problem is that eventually, these bands became less and less about the music and more about the hair, the makeup, the garish outfits, etc..In other words, CHEESE. Entertainment, yes...ground-breaking music? No. As a result, by the late 80's/early 90's, the 'hard rock' genre had degenerated to Brett Michaels prancing around looking like a transvestite hooker screeching "Unskinny Bop" Did the commercial interests drive them to that? Hell yeah....but regardless, that's what happened.

Then bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Soundgarten came along and, whether you liked them or not, they at least were something besides the formulaic "five-guys-with-long-hair-in-makeup-and-spandex-singing-about-girls-and-sex-and-drugs" It was (or at least seemed to be) about music again, nobody gave a crap what Eddie or Kurt were wearing, or how their hair looked. It was just some guys on stage, playing HARD ROCK again. That's why they became popular, it was a reaction to the Vegas stage-show that "metal" had become by then. Again, whether you liked the 'grunge' bands or not, at least they were something different..and it should be noted that they (and Metallica) carried the Hard Rock banner and kept it alive on the charts when it was getting blown away by Hip-Hop, R & B, and idiotic flavor-of-the-month "boy bands".

It makes me seem really old now, but about a decade ago when I first started going to hockey games, I purposely begged my parents to take me early to watch the warmups--more so for the music (Hair and heavy metal) than the actual game itself. Since that time of being a impressionable 2nd grade, I have been hooked to the stuff, and 80's music in general, ever since. Cinderella, Dokken, Scorpions, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, you name it, I can probably recite a list of songs from that group. Thank god down in DFW we have an independent station that is devoted to playing that stuff (93.3 the Bone).

i was and still am a big fan of "hair metal". i was introduced to it in third grade - i stayed home from school for a week with pneumonia and spent 2:30 until 3:00 everyday jumping around while watching "round and round" by ratt on mtv's awesome headbanger's ball. mtv was banned in my house, but that was what did it. let's see (in no particular order):

ratt
whitesnake
cinderella
the crue
winger
dokken
bullet boys
britny fox
mr. big

i know i've left out a ton of other stuff, but these are just a few!

i always wanted to be able to "shred", but i found out about people like:

buddy guy
robert cray
srv
albert collins
the kings - b.b., albert, freddy
muddy waters
john lee hooker

and those guys made me a lot more soulful in my playing - that's why i'm a blues man...

take it for what it's worth, but i have seen both ratt and winger live and they are both full of some seriously talented and underrated musicians.

oh yeah, the guitarist in dokken was not don dokken, it was george lynch who went on to form lynch mob - don't know what he's up to, though.

and i don't think you can name too many "metal" guitarists that are more talented than extreme's nuno bettencourt.

thanks for your time!

Wow that is a really good way of explaining it KRIC777. It is good to see people who actually recognize talent and not flavour-of-the-week bands I love it when my friends sing a song and I tell them they are one hit wonders and in the end they turn out to be.

My basic point is that although there were many bands that were very similar(Cinderella and Britny Fox, anyone?) there were four in particular that got screwed over by the grunge explosion by being dismissed as "one of those damned hair bands". Extreme, Skid Row, Tesla and Mr. Big all had more talent than any grunge or hair band. They were lumped in with that genre but weren't really like it. None of these were glam at all, neither in look, nor in sound.
I also dispute a point made earlier that bands such as Poison got cheesier as they went along. It was really the opposite. Poison started off with "Look What The Cat Dragged In" in 1986, absolutly smothered in makeup and hair-spray. As time went on, they ditched that image and weren't really glam by the time "Flesh and Blood", the album with 'Unskinny Bop' came out in 1990. The rest of the album made an attempt to be more serious than previous efforts but it was all negated by 'Unskinny Bop'.
From the looks of it, my warning not to call any rock band the came out in the 80's or 1990/91(thank you, though, Superfly  Smile ) was ignored for the most part.  Yeah sure  Wink/being sarcastic





PS: The only true hair bands:

Poison
Warrant
Winger (Beavis and Butthead didn't help)
Cinderella
Slaughter
Firehouse
Faster Pussycat
Trixter
Kix
Britny Fox
Danger Danger


The big ones, namely Guns 'N Roses, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe don't belong in that category either.

Tool
Nightwish
Within Temptation
Theatre of Tragedy*
Metallica*
Rammstein*
Dream Theatre
Black Sabbath*
Iron Maiden*
Therion*
Tristania*
Sirena*
Zeromancer (Formerly known as "Seigmenn")
A perfect circle
Paradise Lost
Rhapsody*

As for new metal I prefer Linkin Park, and to a certain extent P.O.D.

Rammstein Hair Metal?

Wed Feb 05, 2003 11:01 pm

Thom@s, are you kidding???????????????? I'm going crazy....Berlin's finest, Rammstein, is about as far from being hair metal as George Bush singing the National Anthem!!!!! Just take a look at the guys ...6 gentlemen at the age of 35-40, looking like a cross between a bank clerk and an accountant, but with an extremely sinister look in the face...and then listen to the sound.
btw I believe your list is more black and death metal than hair metal, but a few good bands among them, really. Don't you listen to nu jazz?? I mean coming from Norway...there are some really great musicians there, one of may favorites Nils Petter Molvaer, Bugge Wesseltoft, Susi Hyldgaard, I just love that!

Tool are almost 'prog rockers', or at least thats what they called themselves at an interview. Iron Maiden are power metal... Black Sabbath are just crap lol...  Smile.

I'll tell you what I can't stand, they aren't hair but the majority of manowar sounds absolute crap... the only song I like is 'warriors of the world united' but it gets boring after a while... Big grin

dash8king,
all I can say is maybe the age thing has something to do with it. Back in the middle 80's some of the greatest bands rocked this earth and anybody in your age group missed the whole damn thing. All you guys have are the boy bands and britney spears. We had GUNS N ROSES AND the whole lot of bands listed above. Also Pantera was hot! Not a hair band, and I cant believe people think IRION MAIDEN, METALLICA were hair bands. I'm not doggin your age, just you missed a lot of good times and bands from a decade ago.

long live rock n roll.

I totally agree, It must have been a great time to grow up with 'Back in Black' blaring out of your speakers, not having a care in the world....

But, there is still some great music in the 90's and the 00's, its just underground. I could name countless bands that absolutely rock. Granted they are different to the hair/glam bands, but they still kick ass in their own way.

Its a bit like James Bonds, you prefer the Bond that you grew up with, because you grew up seeing an actor that was referred to as Bond, so you associate the 'true' Bond with the one you first associated the name 'James Bond' with... Same with music, the music that rocked in the 80's touched on impressionable people back then, just the way that 'Nirvana' and 'RATM' did in the 90's (even though they sucked though Big grin).

The 80's was a great decade for music...

Great thread! Gotta browse thru my old records again.... just bought Dokken- Beast from the east 2LP from ebay, great  Smile

Andreas what you´re looking for is Sacred Groove. It´s George Lynch´s latest project and it is awesome. A lot different than dokken though.

HOLY $h!t!  Wow!

I was cranking that LP last night after while surfing the net!  Big thumbs up

Walk Away is a powerful love ballad. Know one else can figure out why I like that song.


Does yours have a round stcker on it that says "Pressed on high audiophile quality vinyl"?

Yes but I like don't boy bands or brittany Spears my favourite music is from 70's/80's. Of course I like some music that is out their today but the CD's I have are at least 3:1 70's/80's to newly recorded stuff. But W.A.S.P. sucks in my opinion at least the song I heard.

I am a big fan of Metallica, Iron Maiden, and music from that time.
