22 Skid Row Skid Row Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. They were very successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their first two albums certified multi-platinum.

Totally my favorite. Even after Bach left the band they were still good. With Bach I have to say my favorites are Sweet Little Sister, 18 and Life and Monkey Business. Without Bach Ghost is probably my favorite but old school Skid Row was the best.

28 Alice Cooper Alice Cooper Alice Cooper was an American rock band formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1964. The band consisted of lead singer Vince Furnier, Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith.
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
