I just love Hair Bands, before the rise of grunge there was the Ballad power of the Hair bands. You know bands with big hair filling the arenas an ocean of lighters and ballads of love and lost. They could do classic rock like Warrants “Cherry Pie” to Mr Bigs Ballad filled “To be with you”
The rise of grunge may have halted hair bands but they will forever be amazing my eyes.
My first tape was Def Leppard’s “Hysteria” and my first LP was Giant’s “Last of the Runaways” and that lead me to bands like Queensryche, Kix, Warrant and while not mentioned Extreme ( just a bit too rock)
And there are more bands to be discovered, I have managed to get a 100 complication disc series of Hair bands. It will be a jounrey with old friends and new friends to discovered,,,,and some one you probably won’t want to hear from again.
Some bands managed to survice the grunge era and define themselves away from being Hair Metal, Queensryche, Def Leppard, and Accept are all still going strong.
So behold, my Top 20 (ish) of Hair Metal.
- Europe (soft hair)
- Danger Danger
- LA Guns
- Night Ranger
- Faster Pussycat
- Dangerous Toys
- And of course Def Leppard
Sorry couldn’t stop at 20.
Love this song!!!
