Cheesy Hair-Metal Bands

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by DEBuckeye, Jun 10, 2004.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I saw something on VH1 the other day about 80's hair-metal, and it got me thinking (laughing, actually).

    Who else listened to these bands in the 80's? I know you're out there- admit it. What were your favorites? It's scary how many I listened to and saw live. I'd list:

    Winger (saw them at the Newport in Columbus)
    Ratt (saw 'em live)
    Whitesnake (saw 'em)
    Def Leppard (saw 'em)
    Scorpions (saw 'em)
    Night Ranger (saw 'em)
    Autograph (saw 'em)
    Quiet Riot (saw 'em)

    The real scary thing is thinking back to the band I played guitar in- we played most of this stuff...

    Not me - I'm very thankful that my older brother got me listening to Bob Marley at a tender young age :wink: :pimp:

    What is wrong with you people? How is Poison not on this list? And you have Winger at the top? Everybody knows only pussies and little girls listen to Winger... :banger: :biggrin:

    Well, I gotta cop to KISS, Def Leppard and the Scorpions - I saw 'em all.

    The best concert I saw in my college days, however, was Madonna's "Like A Virgin" tour in Cincinnati. Laugh all you like - me, my buddy, and about 19,000 Madonna-wannabes. :wink:

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    I used to dig the Scorpions and Iron Maiden (saw them) the most then there was Queensryche (saw em) but I don't really consider them to be "hair bands".

    The 80's were my party years. I love watching some of those 80's shows on VH1.

    I would vote for:

    Def Leppard
    White Snake
    Night Ranger

    Not big hair bands, but I enjoyed the following 80's groups some of which still survive:

    TP and the Heartbreakers
    Van Halen
    Billy Idol
    Eddie Money

    To name just a few.....

    stxbuck Woody wore Sambas

    Iron Maiden is one the best bands ever-period!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hysteria is one of my 5 all time favorite albums.
    I saw Poison, Warrant, Enuff Z Nuff (just plain horrible.....) and Quiet Riot a few years ago at Polaris. Warrant kinda sucked, but Bret Michaels and Kevin DeBrow both put on a hell of a show.
  10. LoKyBuckeye

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.


    I used to listen to almost all those bands. Def Leppard and Poison were my favorites. Watching all those Remember the 80's type shows really brings back memories.

    Here's a really bad joke my brother told me....

    What has 9 arms and sucks???

    Def Leppard

    Ahhh.. Skid Row. 18 and Life, I Remember You, Youth Gone Wild. I used to listen to them all the time.

    Def Leppard still rocks.

    I admit, I listened to some of them but I have a friend who is a huge hairband fan. He gets pumped anytime one of them releases a new album (Yep, some of them still record). He rattles off names of bands I have never heard of and looks at me like I am some kind of moron because I never heard of a band whose one hit was all the rage in one small section of the country for two weeks in 1985. He always jokes that he still has buttless pants he wears to these reunion concerts.

    All in all, I hope that era of music never returns.

    buckeyebri 40 Days in the Hole

    LJB: I forgot about Motley Crue good catch.....

    Did Ratt ever do anything more than go round and round.....

    What we really need is to know what happened to some of these bands like:

    The Michael Stanley Band
    Donnie Iris
    Gary Myrick and the Playboys

    Hey Joan Jett is touring does she count as big hair?????
