The Top TenXW

1Mötley CrüeMötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

Easily the best hair metal band. Guns N' Roses and Van Halen don't count; they're hard rock/heavy metal, not hair metal.

They are one of the best glam metal bands of all time and the first hair metal bands ever and the most notorious rock band in the world. They have the best albums of the 80s for example dr feelgood, shout out the devil, girls girls girls
too fast for love and theatre of pain are one the most successful albums of the 1980s and nobody can beat motley crue in this list so deal with it!

2KISSKiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

If they didn't ham it out on the outfits, then they wouldn't be popular. They're mediocre musicians, but they're horrible songwriters.
