10 Greatest Hair Metal Bands

Remember the ‘80s? Remember how WEIRD the ‘80s were? Loudwire remembers. Check out our picks for the 10 Greatest Hair Metal Bands.

For the youngsters out there, not every band with hair is a “hair metal” band, but if you’ve got way too much hair along with your pink spandex, chances are you fit into this category. Before grunge came along and killed hair / glam metal on MTV, bands like Def Leppard, Poison and Cinderella were the hottest thing going… and the more you dressed like a chick, the more manly you were.

Not all hair metal bands’ music has aged well. However, Twisted Sister found anthemic tracks like “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It” to be timeless, touring on and off until 2016, packing houses despite not releasing new material since 1987.

Motley Crue still serves as the most notorious, infamous and possibly essential hair metal act. By the time Crue said farewell for good on New Year’s Eve 2015, the iconic band was still filling arenas. Singles like “Kickstart My Heart,” “Dr. Feelgood” and “Girls, Girls, Girls” remain mandatory listening for anyone taking up Metal 101 and Tommy Lee’s incredible drum coasters have yet to be matched in the world of rock concert spectacle.

Check out our picks for the 10 Greatest Hair Metal bands in the Loud List above!
