Top 10 Glam / Hair Metal BandsOzzyVanHalen
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.
They are awful. To many sexual songs... also I though they were girls at first... - Lucretia
Easily the best hair metal band.
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!
Definitely Leppard are classic hard rock!
Annoying... - Lucretia
Oh yes they have the best guitar duos ever phil collen, steve clark and pete willis made def leppard a strong band thanks of the guitar solos in any each song they became the best brittish hair metal band of all time and as new wave of brittish heavy metal of the decade.
pyromania and hysteria are the best albums of def leppard and they become diamond selling more than 10 million copies in united states
Annoying... if Dee Snider had a better voice - Lucretia
All with the knack get to run with the pack.
We're not gonna take it, I Wanna Rock, The Kids are back, and what you don't know. All Classics
Twisted Sister are actualy a Heavy Metal band.V 2 Comments
If I'm feeling gay enough to listen to hair I might as well be gay enough to listen to bon jovi
Annoying. Especially the fans - Lucretia
These guys are not number 1?
Easily the greatest hair band ever. Look at songs like "Livin' On A Prayer", "You Give Love A Bad Name", "Bad Medicine", "Born To Be My Baby", "Runaway" (man I could go on forever). I don't see how Mötley Crüe or Twisted Sister would beat these guys.V 1 Comment
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.
Annoying. Their makeup is also crap, corpse paint looks better... and more corpsey. - Lucretia
Mötley crüe is really good! But when you think of kickass glam rock stars you think of KISS
More of a rock band. Guns N' Roses is a fantastic band anyhow.
if slash was the #1 guitarist then his band should be too!
Guns N' Roses are the best glam metal bands ever - zxm
LOL! why isn't it at #1?! - Singer4FreedomV 3 Comments
Scorpions is classic hard rock!
Are they really hair metal?! - Singer4Freedom
Annoying. To much sappy sogs. - Lucretia
Not really. - zxm
Should be higher, they are a very good band - zxm
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.
Deserves top 5 - EddieVanHalen2001
What? #22? really?
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 - Johnnyt800
They are such a underrated band! They rock!
Another hair band... nothing special - Lucretia
If you could stop with the hair metal stuff, that would be great... - CostcoHotDogs
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.
I thought they were gay or women... anyways Bret Michaels is moronic - Lucretia
Poison is the definition of glam metal
Great band.Great songs
What #11?.Poison is the band ruled glam metal era.Top hit songs,Albums.May be Motley crue #1.(Because they started glam metal)But Poison has to be No.2.Poison received a great success in 80s.All of their concerts were sold out that days,They ruled Hair metal.Should be on top 2V 1 Comment
I like them, except the final countdown is overrated - Lucretia
The best Glam Metal band,in my opinion.
Terrible tough - Lucretia
Motorhead isn't glam metal/hair metal, they are just flat out heavy metal. - HardRockSam
Not even metal though - Lucretia
An amazing jazz band
Motörhead is Classic Speed Metal, not Glam Metal. Even though Motörhead is a great band, they should not be on this list because this is not the correct sub genre.
Rest In Power, Lemmy Kilmister. Knock Satan off his throne.
Do they even have any other songs then round and round - Lucretia
Should Be in the Top 3 Their Glam Metal songs are some of the best - christangrant
Good band, decent for hair. - Lucretia
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
Yeah, so glammy and hair metally. Phil anselmo has the bet hair in glam metal - SoldierOfFortuneV 1 Comment
Self Titled Debut album and The Last Command are my two favorite albums of all time. They are truly Metal as opposed to Poison - BlackMetalMaven
They should be in the top ten
Sleeping in the fire - Singer4Freedom
The first albumis the best in my opinionV 1 Comment
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
They are hard rock... - Lucretia
Their 70's and 90's-present music is awesome too! And why below Bon Jovi? Aerosmith is waaay better! - rockerchic18
I hate them and know they aren't glam - Lucretia
Why he is on 18 place?!
He needs to be higher:/
HEY STOOPID WHADDYA THINK YOU'RE DOINg
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
They're the best because they mock other glam metal bands and are satire and funny. - SoldierOfFortune
Yes. The only good glammy one... - Lucretia
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
By far the most underrated heavy metal band to date
LOL WHY ARE THEY HERE - Gruunge
This band is awesome especially with Vinnie Vincent's guitar playing
Winger should be in the top 3 along with Ratt and Cinderella, in my opinion. No other band had the groove they did.
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.
