Top 10 Glam / Hair Metal Bands
The Top Ten
Easily the best hair metal band. Guns N' Roses and Van Halen don't count; they're hard rock/heavy metal, not hair metal.
Easily the best hair metal band.
Best band ever!
are the godfathers of glam metal
Definitely Leppard are classic hard rock!
Was the poster boy for 80s hard rock
Defined a generation.
Twisted Sister are actualy a Heavy Metal band.
We're not gonna take it, I Wanna Rock, The Kids are back, and what you don't know. All Classics
Best Glam metal band ever!
All with the knack get to run with the pack.
Should be higher, they are a very good band
This list is a little jacked up, half of 'em aren't true glam bands, they just happened to be around during glam's heydey Having said that, Skid Row is better than everyone on here except for Guns N' Roses & maybe Crue.
Way too underrated
Deserves top 5
What Glam Metal band is still producing and selling records to this day like Bon Jovi? Get them up the list pronto
If I'm feeling gay enough to listen to hair I might as well be gay enough to listen to bon jovi
Besides having nice long hair, it's also about what's inside the band members. The band members in Motley Crue and Poison all act like psychopaths, but BJ is actually one of the only popular glam metal bands that act normally.
Most successful band in the history.
The band that wanted nothing but a good time
Motley Crue & Poison ruled Hair metal era
Poison is the definition of glam metal
Poison is the best glam metal band
More of a rock band. Guns N' Roses is a fantastic band anyhow.
One of the best hair metal bands ever
if slash was the #1 guitarist then his band should be too!
Best Glam Metal Band of All Time
Self Titled Debut album and The Last Command are my two favorite albums of all time. They are truly Metal as opposed to Poison
They should be in the top ten
Sleeping in the fire
Because wasp rly a lot of metal. I think wasp is the most METAL glam band
Super under rated band. Been listening to them since I was a kid, love a ton of their songs. There's some incredibly good tracks that aren't recognized at all. Check out Slick Black Cadillac, Terrified, "Stomp your Hands, Clap your Feet" and Mama we're all crazy now. They've got some good, pained love ballads as well such as; Breathless, Love's a Bitch and I can't make you love me. Of course, there's Come on feel the noise and Bang your head - just in case you forgot cuzz they never get any air time these days. Great band just totally overlooked and forgotten.
It should be on the top ten they deserve it
One of my top 10 favorites
Awesome band that was underrated. Great guitar, lyrics, vocals,...the whole package.
Dokken was still my favourite GlamMetalBand! The Vocals of Don Dokken and the Guitarplay of George Lynch really fits together."Under lock and key" is still after 33 years my top number 1 Album! This Band should be in the top 5 of best GlamMetalBands.
The best shock glam band ever!
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.
Mötley crüe is really good! But when you think of kickass glam rock stars you think of KISS
For all you people with the “KISS can’t write songs” argument. Explain how KISS made the Hall of Fame? There are a bunch of bands, supposedly better who haven’t even sniffed that honor yet!
It's hard to really look at who the Top Hair Bands are, but Cinderella can thank Bon Jovi. Cinderella Kind of helped Poison, Jeff Labar wore tor up Tour Shirt
that had Poisons Look What The Cat Dragged In. You find that particular in Cinderellas Ft. A Cameo Of Sambora and Bon Jovi. The song Somebody Save Me.
They are such a underrated band! They rock!
So much better than they ever got credit for. I saw them live 2 years in a row. 2007 and 2008. Both times they were phenomenal
Ok so realistically they should be number 3 because half the top ten isn’t even glam metal bands smh lol
They should be top 3. I think their stuff holds much better over time than Motley $h1t... I can’t even listen to MC anymore. So aged. Their music doesn’t stand the test of time. But RATT? Still so wicked and the intros to Way Cool Jr and Lay it Down are just bad ass.
An amazing jazz band
Motorhead isn't glam metal/hair metal, they are just flat out heavy metal.
Motorhead is by far the best Gospel band.Their lineup is so iconic Freddie Mercury on Lead Vocals, Kurt Cobain on Guitar and Co-lead vocals, on bass John Entwisle and on Drums John Bonham and their hit song "Dream On"
Not Glam Metal
1. motley crue 2. definitely leppard 3. Whitesnake 4. bon jovi 5. skid row in my opinion the only glam metal bands that actually had sheer talent all the rest were just pretty boys that don't know how to play there instruments and what hell is guns n roses doing on this list what cause axl had the hair in there first video welcome to the jungle they wasnt glam they were hard rock/heavy metal
Should Be in the Top 3 Their Glam Metal songs are some of the best
Terry glaze is the best frontmen I ever seen in my life and he made the band so popular instead the most underrated glam metal band ever but they replace him with phil anselmo and then they made heavy metal history their songs in the 80s are so epic just pay attention to dimbag darells guitar solos since they were a glam metal so long the songs are way too better than the most known it should be on the top ten list
I like this band too pntera should now be a number 21 top ten for this band as well
Yeah, so glammy and hair metally. Phil anselmo has the bet hair in glam metal
The best Glam Metal band,in my opinion.
Scorpions is classic hard rock!
Are they really hair metal?!
Aerosmith shouldn't even be on the list. They are not I repeat not a hair metal band!
What the hell come on guys is the best rock band ever and you have aerosmith no. 16 no way bro they must be number one but it they are in my opinion joe perry and steven are one of my favourite members of the band they look aswome it's not fair to have this legendery hard rock band so low in this list put it number one
Their 70's and 90's-present music is awesome too! And why below Bon Jovi? Aerosmith is waaay better!
Why he is on 18 place?!
He needs to be higher:/
HEY STOOPID WHADDYA THINK YOU'RE DOINg
They're the best because they mock other glam metal bands and are satire and funny.
Very underrated in my opinion
Heavy Metal Rules!
How are these guys not higher their Steel Panther. They don't take themselves to seriously unlike Motley Crue and they actually are glam metal unlike Motörhead
Best metal band ever
One of the best
They don't take themselves super seriously, which automatically makes them better. They seem like they're actually having fun.
Onne of the best! Loved them in the 80s, love them now. Hope to see Michael Monroe when he tours Europe in Fall!
THE definitive glam metal band from the look to the sense of shock (dig Mike Monroes nasty deep baritone voice in contrast to his look) to the quality of the songs. The Guns N' Roses song Welcome to the Jungle was inspired by that phrase in the Hanoi Rocks song Underwater World. These guys are woefully underrated.
