Did you know that Pantera was a poofy haired metal band like Poison and Pretty Boy Floyd?

Pantera in 1985. Far Beyond Glam!
Diamond Darrell, singer Terrance Lee, Rex Rocker, and Vinnie Paul



It's not Dimebag Darrell, but "Diamond Darrell Lance!"


Rex Rocker and Vinnie Paul


Phil Anselmo and his Vulgar Display Of Hairspray



Pantera in 1988 striking their metal poses. This was only 2 years before "Cowboys From Hell" came out.



Holding a beer while having big hair shows people that you're still a tough guy, right?



Phil while Rex Rocker rocks out!



Notice Phil, on your left, has a bandanna tied around his leg. This is from 1988.

Personally, I think Pantera should have been true to their roots instead of selling out. If they had integrity they would have done like Jetboy and Poison and would now be playing big shows.

I love hair metal and it's a shame these guys could have done that.

You spelt Pantera wrong..that's a sure sign for a success.


Shows what you know. They were originally "Pantara" as the original singer was named Tara Rock

Actually I did, and with me apparently most of these guys. And to be frank I quite liked the music.

Not a troll. I love hair metal and all the glam bands.

Tough, Helix, Enough Z Nuff, Nelson, LA Guns, Cinderella, Bullit Boys, etc...

I like bands with integrity that stick with what they do and don't sell out for the allmighty dollar.

If the amps were tube they were.

I am just sick of poser bands. I would rather hear Pantera doing Poison style rock and being true to themselves then pretending to be something they're not.

And some people like bands who have the testicles to change their musical style to something that they enjoy playing instead of what they thought would bring them success.

It was the 80s, hair metal was big, they thought they could ride that wave. Then they said "You know what, lets play something original that we actually like". And it just happened to bring them more success than ripping off Motley Crue did.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Um, to be fair Glam Metal bands were where the money was in the 80's. People were more interested in seeing guys dress up like girls than enjoying that new fangled 'Thrash Metal'.

Oh, you were saying they used to be called Pantara? Every picture you posted has Pantera on it

No, the opposite. In the early 90s they saw the writing on the wall and jumped ship instead of dying with dignity on a sequened and feather boa'd ship they abandoned their roots.

It's like if Led Zep made a disco record to stay current

What, you expect people who make a living from the music they produce and perform, to just give up their careers and work in McDonald's because some teenager thinks they have some sort of artistic integrity?
