29 Dokken Dokken Dokken are an American metal band formed in 1979. They split up in 1989 and reformed four years later.

The unique voices of Don Dokken combined with the nifty guitar work of George Lynch brings out a classic glam/hair metal line up, that works well considering they were around the time that hair metal was roaring, oh and DragonForce, albeit a fantastic band, I mean the guitarists, come on, they are not a hair metal band and Guns n' Roses are one of the bands that truly shaped the concept of hair metal, that went on to influence many other bands, including Dokken, so many consider them to be awesome
