They were just plain hard rock/arena metal but no way were they into that hair stuff.Maybe they've influenced,but Van Halen was not a hair band. Hair metal was Motley Crue and Ratt NOT Van Halen. That's like calling the Scorpions or Led Zeppelin hair metal.

Anyways I like very little of hair metal. Dokken and Kick Axe are the few hair metal bands I can get into. Actually the first Ratt album isn't bad either. Like rap music,I only listen to hair metal on a rare occasion. I never really liked what they stood for and was so glad when Nirvana came around.
Yeh and I wouldn't put GNR in that Category either. Like them or hate them I don't care. I think they were more what people called sleaze rock,either that or Glam punk just like Hanoi Rocks (Who they admit inspired them a lot) or maybe they were a bit of both i dunno. but they were quite different from what became the generic 80's glam metal band and Glam metal did get quite generic after awhile

I'd never seen this before, and it interested me enough to share. Chris Cornell discussing the difference between the LA bands and Seattle bands.
I miss the comfort in being sad.
