    Oh, I don't think you are alone there! I think quite a few of us shared that experience. A few more I can add:

    White lion
    Cinderella
    Winger
    Dokken
    Ratt
    Britny Fox
    Kix
    Enuff Z'Nuff
    Slaughter


    Scarier then that? I will still pop in a mixed tape of this stuff or a CD compilation now and again.

    Poison, an admitted guilty pleasure. "Unskinny Bop" rocks!!! Also, The Crue, even though I don't really consider "Too Fast For Love" or "Shout at the Devil" to be hair metal.

    WINGER RULES!!!!!!!!!
    Damn, couldn't even type that with a straight face. Does anybody actually like Winger?
    The only hair bands I kinda liked were Quiet Riot and Twisted Sister. BTW, does anybody else think that Quiet Riot is one of the coolest band names ever.

    About three years ago I was in my parents garage and came across a old cassett case that was mine during high school (87) it had some great old tapes in there. Had to wait till I got home to listen to them and dig up a old walkman - CD age and all.
    Some of these tapes were in pretty sad shape but still a great walk down memeory lane.

    Of course VH was in there.

    5Poison

    I still love the Scorps! Love their sound! Love Klaus Meine's voice. In fact, my Fiancee and I went to see the Scorpions and Motley Crue last summer. ( I had to talk her in to going with me. She said she outgrew this stuff . . .although she did ask me to try and get Def Leppard tickets for this summer.) We LOVED the Scorps! Their show was great! Thumbs down to crue though. No Tommy Lee and Vince sounded like a cat in the vacuum. I used to like Crue but no after that concert.

    Balance- Funny thing about Winger. I remember back in the day when Metal Heads, ESPECIALLY Metallica fans, were always ripping on them and saying they had no talent. I don't think they ever forgot me telling them that Reb Beach could smoke Kirk Hammet and James Hetfield on guitar.

    In fact, one night about a year ago, my old friend Danny bought me a drink at a bar while Winger's "Seventeen" played on a jukebox. ( It was like an 80's theme that night in case you are wondering.) (Very rare he ever buys drinks!) He told me it was for being right about Reb Beach many years ago. We laughed and toasted. Then Danny said, " I also bought you a beer because I feel sorry for you." I asked why is that? Danny said, " Because you wake up every morning not knowing if Van Halen have a singer."

    . . .I drank to that!

    I remember Faster Pussycat was opening up for Whitesnake and they stunk reeeaaaaalll bad.

    The highlight of their set was when the guitar player got on his knees to play one of his God awful solos and some guy horcked on him, Yuck! Needless to say the set ended promptly. It was terrible but I laughed so hard, I almost passed out!

    I'm not saying that they are a terrible band, I've never heard a tune from them, (other then at the concert), but if they are good, they were having an off off night

    I'll admit it I'm a Warrant fan. Some of the 80's stuff was OK but most was pretty forgettable. Warrant's released a couple of cool new albums on CMC records. Ultraphobic in 1995 and Belly to Belly in 1996. Pretty good stuff, definately a lot different than what they used to sound like.
