Break out the spandex and Aquanet! You wanted the best, you got the best, it's THE OFFICIAL HAIR METAL THREAD!!!
On a side note, does this belong in the Metal, or Rock & Indie subcategory of the Bands & Artists forum? I'm not sure.
Never liked the term hair metal, is it an American thing as it's only recently I've heard it used over here.
And it was shockwaves hard rock hairspray here rather than aquanet - really miss the smell of that stuff.
Also, Mötley Crüe and GNR. Not exactly the same, but people mix them in the genre often, so, we can talk about them here too.
