Top 10 Glam / Hair Metal BandsOzzyVanHalen
The Top Ten
Easily the best hair metal band.
Easily the best hair metal band. Guns N' Roses and Van Halen don't count; they're hard rock/heavy metal, not hair metal.

Defined a generation.
Was the poster boy for 80s hard rock
Definitely Leppard are classic hard rock!
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
What Glam Metal band is still producing and selling records to this day like Bon Jovi? Get them up the list pronto
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.
If I'm feeling gay enough to listen to hair I might as well be gay enough to listen to bon joviV 3 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!
All with the knack get to run with the pack.V 1 Comment
One of the best hair metal bands ever
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!
Best Glam Metal Band of All TimeV 5 Comments
The band that wanted nothing but a good time
Motley Crue & Poison ruled Hair metal era
Poison is the best glam metal band
Why aren't they #1 - kolithahV 11 Comments
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.
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!
Mötley crüe is really good! But when you think of kickass glam rock stars you think of KISS
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.
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.
Way too underrated
Deserves top 5 - EddieVanHalen2001
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.V 1 Comment
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"
An amazing jazz band
Motorhead isn't glam metal/hair metal, they are just flat out heavy metal. - HardRockSam
Not Glam Metal - christangrantV 2 Comments
Scorpions is classic hard rock!
Are they really hair metal?! - Singer4Freedom
Not really. - zxm
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
Great! - DaringXx
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 - Singer4FreedomV 2 Comments
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.
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 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
The best Glam Metal band,in my opinion.
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
LOL WHY ARE THEY HERE - Gruunge
They don't take themselves super seriously, which automatically makes them better. They seem like they're actually having fun. - Pagepage21
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.
NO NO NO THIS SHOULD BE IN 100S
Winger should be in the top 3 along with Ratt and Cinderella, in my opinion. No other band had the groove they did.
By far the most underrated heavy metal band to date
This is a kick-ass band
This band is awesome especially with Vinnie Vincent's guitar playing
White lion is a better hard rock band than other that I see in best positions
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
May not be in the top tens here, but they definitely are in my list. I love Jack Russel and Mark Kendall.
The BEST BAND EVER!
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
