Loudwire Picks Best Hair Metal Bands

Loudwire does a lot of lists. They just put up their "10 best hair metal bands" list. Number 10 is Dokken and number 1 is Motley Crue. Along the way, Def Leppard, Poison and Cinderella make the list too. What do you think?

This "article" was doomed from the beginning!
"Hair" is a complete insult used by douche bags who hate glam metal!
All I got from this was that some idiot millennial who thinks "hair" is somehow a genre of music...
...Just half assed used Wikipedia & made a "stupid/cheesy (not to be respected)" list of bands they hate but pretend to feel like they had a good song or 2...

No thanks, I'll easily pass!

Michael Monroe - The Best was released on CD on July 7 (my birthday actually, which was pretty sweet)
It's obviously amazing & filled with badass glam metal!

I agree with Jakki. Horrible list. And WASP isn't Hair Metal either.

What 21 year old made that list. Terrible. Agreed guys W.A.S.P. was not hair metal. Not in any order but Ratt, Cinderella, Warrant, Crue, WhiteSnake, Poison, Skid Row, Def Lep for sure. It would be tough for me to narrow it down too two more bands.

Touchy, touchy!

As most of you are fairly aware, I don't view the term "Hair Metal" in a derogatory manor.

It allows for including WASP on the list ...

But Loudeore's list is off ...

Here are "The Tip Ten Greatest Hair Metal Bands of All Time"! ...

1) Mötley Crüe
3) Cinderella
4) Poison
5) L.A. Guns
6) Whitesnake
7) Warrant
8) Faster Pussycat
9) Roxx Gang

Granted, the last two, though great, aren't nearly as popular as the previous eight, I just couldn't think of anybody else so somebody help me out -- just don't be p*ssed about me calling the genre "Hair Metal", haha!!
