I might have misinterpreted messages on previous pages, is glam metal = hair metal?
Talk about non grunge music and music in general in here. Don't be shy, we don't bite.

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 awhileSweet69 wrote::weird: Don't think I would ever call Van Halen a "hair metal" band, no way!!!! 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.
