This Week's Question: Best Hair Metal Bands?
Hair metal (otherwise known as Glam Metal) is possibly the only genre to be better known for its appearance than its history. Forged as much from pop and punk as heavy metal, it amplified everything flamboyant about the 70s and multiplied it with the plastic excess of the '80s.

Hair metal might look like a joke to younger rock listeners, but for a time before Nirvana helped grunge explode onto the mainstream in 1992, hair metal ruled the world.

This week's question is:

Who is the best hair metal band of all time?

You could pick an authentic '80s staple like Motley Crue, or a modern tribute like Steel Panther. Whoever it is, let us know in the comments and we'll put them into a head banging top 10 for you this week.

Post one nomination per comment and up vote others you agree with. Thanks!
