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.
Easily the best hair metal band.
Love themV 1 Comment
Definitely Leppard are classic hard rock!
Was the poster boy for 80s hard rock
Defined a generation.
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.V 1 Comment
Poison is the definition of glam metal
The band that wanted nothing but a good time
Motley Crue & Poison ruled Hair metal era
OK.Some people hates Poison But It's just because their girly look in ther album cover.They not acted like girls in their live shows or in real life.They should not be underrated.Because they made good songsV 11 Comments
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!
Best band ever. Why isn't it higher? And VH isn't glam, they're rock.V 1 Comment
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.V 3 Comments
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!
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.V 5 Comments
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!
Scorpions is classic hard rock!
Are they really hair metal?! - Singer4Freedom
Not really. - zxm
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!
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.
Way too underrated
Deserves top 5 - EddieVanHalen2001V 1 Comment
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.
Motorhead isn't glam metal/hair metal, they are just flat out heavy metal. - HardRockSam
An amazing jazz band
Not Glam Metal - christangrant
*spits coffee everywhere*
...I've been so blind... - EliHbk
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
The best Glam Metal band,in my opinion.
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.
Should Be in the Top 3 Their Glam Metal songs are some of the best - christangrant
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 - SoldierOfFortune
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
Great! - DaringXxV 2 Comments
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! - rockerchic18
Why he is on 18 place?!
He needs to be higher:/
HEY STOOPID WHADDYA THINK YOU'RE DOINg
They don't take themselves super seriously, which automatically makes them better. They seem like they're actually having fun. - Pagepage21
LOL WHY ARE THEY HERE - Gruunge
By far the most underrated heavy metal band to date
Back in the day, just as the party was going to get out of hand we'd play this and turn it up each time the band sang "Turn Up, the Radio! " That's when it would get out of hand.
I still hum send her to me, Night Teen, and of course Turn up the radio
NO NO NO THIS SHOULD BE IN 100S
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.
They're the best because they mock other glam metal bands and are satire and funny. - SoldierOfFortune
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
Winger should be in the top 3 along with Ratt and Cinderella, in my opinion. No other band had the groove they did.
This band is awesome especially with Vinnie Vincent's guitar playing
This is a kick-ass band
May not be in the top tens here, but they definitely are in my list. I love Jack Russel and Mark Kendall.
