Top 10 Glam / Hair Metal Bands
The Top Ten
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!
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!
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
I don’t consider def. Leppard, Scorpions, G-N-R, Skid Row, Pantera, W.A.S.P., Aerosmith and Motörhead glam bands. KISS and Motley Crue were glam for a short period of time, based on their look. True glam was groups like Poison, Cinderella, Dokken, Britny Fox, Stryper, Slaughter, Enuff Z enough and Bon Jovi. Twisted Sister was too big and brutal looking to be glam. I would have to give top glam band honors to Poison and Cinderella due to their look and sound.
Definitely Leppard are classic hard rock!
Was the poster boy for 80s hard rock
We're not gonna take it, I Wanna Rock, The Kids are back, and what you don't know. All Classics
All with the knack get to run with the pack.
Best band ever. Why isn't it higher? And VH isn't glam, they're rock.
Twisted Sister are actualy a Heavy Metal 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.
Should be higher, they are a very good band
Way too underrated
Way better than 10
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.
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.
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.
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
Most successful band in the history.
The band that wanted nothing but a good time
Bret Michaels is the best singer & CC Deville is a badass Guitarist
Motley Crue & Poison ruled Hair metal era
Poison is the definition of glam metal
Self Titled Debut album and The Last Command are my two favorite albums of all time. They are truly Metal as opposed to Poison
Because wasp rly a lot of metal. I think wasp is the most METAL glam band
They should be in the top ten
Sleeping in the fire
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.
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.
The best shock glam band ever!
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!
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.
Ok so realistically they should be number 3 because half the top ten isn’t even glam metal bands smh lol
Don't vote for Guns n roses. They are not Hair metal. Hair metal is a music genre. It is not a Name used to describe bands with members having long hair and plays metal. Hair metal means Pop metal or Glam metal. They are the bands do music Combined with Pop and metal, and probably they will wear fancy clothes and make up. Guns n roses never sounds pop. Their first album shows much heavy metal features not hair metal. They hated Hair metal. Also Slash stated that they hated hair metal. Actually Hair metal bands are Motley Crue, Poison, Warrant etc. Even in "Rolling stone" Magazine's list of "50 Greatest Hair metal albums", There's No any Guns n roses album included. Its not because guns n roses albums are not good, it's because they are not Hair metal. Actually If Axl rose see this list that they are voted as a Hair/Glam metal band, He will beat you all, Definitely Guns n roses is not hair metal.
Ahhh yes guns n roses the most badass band in hard rock ever and the most dangerous of the 80s. appetite for destruction is the best hair metal album it sold 30 million copies worldwide but slash and axl rose are one the most important members in history it should be no. 2 instead number 3 so low for a kickass rock band
More of a rock band. Guns N' Roses is a fantastic band anyhow.
Guns N' Roses are the best glam metal bands ever
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.
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
They are such a underrated band! They rock!
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
Scorpions is classic hard rock!
Are they really hair metal?!
Should Be in the Top 3 Their Glam Metal songs are some of the best
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
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
The best Glam Metal band,in my opinion.
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"
Motorhead isn't glam metal/hair metal, they are just flat out heavy metal.
Easily the best symphonic crust punk band.
An amazing jazz 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
Aerosmith shouldn't even be on the list. They are not I repeat not a hair metal band!
Their 70's and 90's-present music is awesome too! And why below Bon Jovi? Aerosmith is waaay better!
They don't take themselves super seriously, which automatically makes them better. They seem like they're actually having fun.
Best metal band ever
One of the best
He needs to be higher:/
Why he is on 18 place?!
HEY STOOPID WHADDYA THINK YOU'RE DOINg
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.
Onne of the best! Loved them in the 80s, love them now. Hope to see Michael Monroe when he tours Europe in Fall!
