    The first two Def Leppard records are the best, especially High 'n' Dry. The blend of melody and aggression on that album is unbeatable, and while I like Pyromania and Hysteria quite a bit, they never got better than High 'n' Dry.

    I agree with that. We did a lot of hearty partying with that one blaring.

    #103 7 months ago

    David Bowie the original

    David Bowie the original

    And his buddy Mick Ronson. A way underrated guitar player who was light years ahead of his time.

    Yes!! One of my favorite albums to play in it's entirety every time. I got to see them when i was 15 on the Pyromania tour. Wish I still had the T-shirt

    #106 7 months ago

    Did anyone mention Hanoi Rocks?


    Edit: R.I.P. Razzle

    #107 7 months ago

    Warlock - All we are

    #108 7 months ago

    Here are some of my favorite songs that weren't mentioned:

    Tora Tora - Guilty
    Every Mother's Nightmare - Walls Come Down
    Love/Hate - Black Out In the Red Room
    Electric Boys - Lips And Hips

    Wow what kind of sheltered life did I live. I’ve never even heard of any of them.

    KEEL had a little success.

    I’m sure you would of enjoyed one of our Canadian bush parties back in the day.., long hair, Jean jacket Filled with batteries Smokes and weed. Couple pleasure packs.. (fellow Canadians remember those beer cases). A Big roaring fire, 80s rock cranked ..good ol days.

    #113 7 months ago

    Don't forget these guys....

    #114 7 months ago

    Would the four horseman qualify? ..mabey a little too recent

    #115 7 months ago

    Technically not hair metal or glam rock but near enough , a fucken' great song most of you guys probably have never heard .

    #116 7 months ago

    Really good song Man thanks for sharing...ironically Lead singer sounds a bit like Frank Starr (four Horseman) R.I.P Frank.

    #117 7 months ago

    Still my favorite type of music. Your list is great and I am going to have to check out some of the suggestions in this thread that i haven't heard. Just recently discovered this song from 1988. The whole album is great

    #118 7 months ago

    #119 7 months ago

    Killer Dwarfs.
    I remember this band due to my buddy in art class who painted a killer Dwarfs album but spelled it killer dwafs...he for got the R ..lol

    #120 7 months ago

    Gotta have some vocal range:

    #121 7 months ago

    And Rainbow and Elf

    #122 7 months ago

    Anyone know Lion? They're most known for their cover of the Transformers theme for the 1986 animated movie, but they had two albums and an EP as well. Doug Aldrich on guitar, later to play with Dio and Whitesnake, and vocals by Kal Swan of the NWOBHM band Tytan.

    #123 7 months ago

    Black Sabbath - Lady Evil..... that bass line pushed my bazooka subs to 11

    Ronnie James Dio rocked the shit out of those Sabbath albums. Ozzy who?

    #124 7 months ago

    This guys YouTube channel is amazing.



    #125 7 months ago

    Took me some time to figure out this not so known Swedish band, released their first album in 1989 and made a follow up album last year

    Steelwings - Stand up and shout loud

    #126 7 months ago

    Steel Panther, taking the genre to its most ridiculous logical conclusion (possibly offensive):


    (They even managed to get the “Behind the Music” treatment, with no less than Scott Ian, Dave Navarro, and Dee Snider citing them as influences.)

    #127 7 months ago
    Quoted from bssbllr:

    I’ve never even heard of any of them.

    I never missed a Headbangers Ball episode, despite Rikki Rachtman.

    Quoted from Methos:

    Don't forget these guys....

    I was going to list them, but I didn't consider them to be Hair Metal.

    Another band i forgot to list is Badlands.

    #128 7 months ago

    TEENAGE HEAD

    #129 7 months ago

    The Canadian Ramones!! More of a Pop punk band, but great! Interesting history too.

    #130 7 months ago

    A short lived project with multiple members coming and going, but the debut of John Skye's solo work is one of the best albums in the genre. If only he and Coverdale were compatible.....

    Hell yeah, was about to post a song from Blue Murder. Picked up that album about five or so years ago and was extremely surprised by how good it was. Pretty damn heavy, too.

    #132 7 months ago

    Uh oh

    #133 7 months ago

    Fantastic list! Thanks. Would you consider "I Want Out" by Helloween?

    A little more metal, but definitely have the look and feel of Hair!

    #134 7 months ago

    McQueen Street

    Wildside

    Sweet FA

    #135 7 months ago

    #136 7 months ago

    Blue Murder ..good stuff! first time hearing

    We loved John's work with Whitesnake and knew he wrote a lot of the 87 album, so when BM came out we picked it up and were lucky to see the incarnation of that line up (John, Carmine, Tony). They were incredible and for John to sing AND play those riffs...wow. Still sounds great today.

    Great White- Mista Bone
