Worst Hair Metal Bands

Hair metal is a disaster, counting down the worst. Btw, Van Halen doesn't count considering they're not hair metal.

The Top Ten

1 Poison Poison Poison is an American glam and hard rock band that achieved great commercial success in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.

They have one good song. THe rest is absolute garbage, worst "metal" (not really) out there, even worst than some really bad core bands. - SoldierOfFortune

They have a few good songs, though not that many... - Element119

Though poison is very famous, But their 'latest' songs which they produced aren't good at all, but yes - their starting ones were (some) good and the leading reasons for their fame - Ananya

2 Warrant Warrant Warrant is an American glam metal band formed in 1984 in Hollywood, California, that experienced success from 1989 to 1996 with five albums reaching international sales of over 10 million.

Cherry Pie is one of the worst songs I've ever heard...

There is not a more annoying song than Cherry Pie with the possible exception of George Harrison’s Got My Mind Set on You!

Warrant has some pop influences, but when you put that aside the music that they make is by no means bad. - Pagepage21

Can you not stand the fact that metal has even the slightest interaction with pop music? - ProPanda

Bon Jovi isn't metal however, they certainly contributed to the decline of modern music...

Don't think that they try to be metal like other hm bands. - SoldierOfFortune

7 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.

Actually, from my point of view, glam metal is an annoying genre. But glam metal artists are talented though. Axl Rose, Slash, Sebastian Bach etc. - zxm

Good band but quite overrated...Their recent songs weren't good at all either - Ananya

8 Stryper Stryper Stryper is an American Christian metal band from Orange County, California. The group's lineup consists of Michael Sweet, Oz Fox, Perry Richardson, and Robert Sweet.

10 FireHouse

The Contenders

11 W.A.S.P. W.A.S.P. W.A.S.P. is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 by Blackie Lawless, who is the only remaining original member of the band.
12 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

Every time I hear one of their songs play, I am glad this era in music is over. Goofy...

Tommy is an overrated, gimmick drummer compared to most other serious metal drummers. Vince’s voice is annoying at many points in their songs. MM is talented, but the combination of everything just screams cheese and lacks any depth.

Motley crue was a really good metal band shouldn't be on this list I don't consider them hair metal there just straight heavy metal

This is the best Hair Metal Band - christangrant

Well actually Pantera is the best Glam Metal Band because they used to be one - christangrant
