I listen to 80s music, and the station I listen to features a lot of those bands.

I wouldn't really say that I like hair metal, so much as I laugh at the cheese factor.

Mind you some of those you listed do have a few good songs.


Seems that most of what I enjoy is Thrash and Death Metal :P And yes, I know that can be just as cheesy, if not more so.

I like these bands:

Van Halen

Bon Jovi

Def Leppard

Europe


I never knew they were Hair Metal, until this topic. I thought they were Hard Rock.

I like INXS. Is that Hair Metal?

I don't think INXS is hair metal. They're more New Wave but I still like a few songs of theirs.

I adore hair metal.....but can't say exactly how or why. I don't like it as a joke...but i don't totally <3 it in a serious way either

anyhow:

Motley Crue
Def Leppard
Skid Row
Poison
Tigertailz

classics one and all..in fact i'm off to a not entirely serious evening of hair metal tomos night. Its an occasional club night called Spandecks..last time they played Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone...i was a happy man indeed haha

PS:

Night Ranger - Secret of My Success is the funniest song ever :D

Ah, yes. Night Ranger is one of my fave bands. Living 25 hours a day? Brilliant! I don't think i've heard of Tigertailz yet, though. Another good mention would be Finland's Brother Firetribe with Nightwish guitarist Emppu.

I lived through 'em the first time around, lost my taste for most of them.
That said, I liked Skid Row and Scorpions, tho I wouldn't necessarily put Scorpions into hair metal as they drastically pre-dated it. I liked Quiet Riot up until I was about 13.. Dio, meh. Angry metal jesterdwarf. Only like one or two songs of his. Van Halen was good for quite a while but then they just kinda fizzled out.
