    Yeah, I think Motley Crue or maybe Bon Jovi set the border of “hair metal” - anyone that was around before them is not “hair metal”

    even Motley Crue was originally Shock Rock, not glam. They did kind of pave the way for hair metal with the Theater of Pain album. Very experimental record for them, but their look definitely pioneered hair metal (though bands like the New York Dolls, David Bowie, Angel, Starz, etc. were all doing it first).

    As bklyn said, Scorps came out way too early to be defined as hair metal. I mean, if we're counting them, let's throw Ozzy into that mix because of the look he had going around the Ultimate Sin record. We're going to call one of the godfathers of metal, glam? That dog don't hunt. That bell don't chime.

    The LA Strip was the foundation of 80's hair metal. Coming from what the girls were doing with their hair at the time. I'd go Motley and Dokken. They had the earliest success.

    not wrong. But the KISS that became Bon Jovi wannabes was not the same KISS that made those great records in the '70s

    The Scorps are not hair metal but they definitely attempted to ride the gravy train with hair metal. The hair and outifits were not present during their earlier years. They jumped on the fashion band wagon. Matthias is rocking out the Phil Collin bare chest look. Just like Heart. Heart isn't hair metal but they sure altered their look for MTV and the style of the day.
