One of the songs alternated between Am and this chord, not quite the same situation, so would be Fmaj7/A.
However it's interesting what you say, so a song like this for instance which is basically Gm with the 5th raised to b6, to maj6, and back down again (also with the 2nd and 4th as melody notes, plus the 5th in the higher octave against the b6) ... Could/would you call that progression Gm, Gm(b6), Gm6, Gm(b6), etc?

It's Eb/G. I just can't hear the G as the root of that chord.

Regarding 80s music, I think this is a good example of what I would call a mb6 chord (not a maj7 in its first inversion).

Though it sounds like the Rhodes in the background is playing a Bm7 chord, so that would make it Bm7b13 I guess.

I can't hear the b6 as a chord tone

Whitesnake: G over Bm7 as a pedal from the Em7 preceding
Vixen: D-C-Bb-A-Bb-Bb descending melody over G-Eb-G, strong notes D and Bb in melody. G-Eb-Bb = Eb/G

^Yeah.

You only every really hear the minor chord with (b6) as part of an ascending line cliche like that. It's not really a standalone harmony per se, just an eleaboration of the regular minor chord.

Yeah, makes sense, and that's also what I thought. Kind of similar to x 5 4 0 3 0 - I wouldn't analyze the open strings as actual chord tones.

In the Whitesnake song the G could also be kind of an "anticipation" for the C chord because it's played just before the chord changes.

I just thought that was a good example of something that actually sounds like a minor chord and not like a maj7 chord in its first inversion.

The song only has four chords in it (if we forget about extensions and different voicings), D, G, A in the verse and D, G, E and A in the chorus.

The bass plays a G over that chord. I would call it a G6.
