Is Hair Metal metal? I got into a debate with someone about this and thought I'd ask the metal forum. Thoughts?
Not Metal imo. Their may be a small amount of Heavy Metal influence. But i would classify it as closer to rock then metal.

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

no, it's not. it's WAY closer to rock than metal. while there is a very small amount of it that is on the metal-er side of the equation it still isn't metal and the vast majority isn't even particularly related to Metal.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

I would classify some glam bands as metal like old Motley Crue or Twisted Sister. Bands like Poison or Cinderella are more hard rock (at least to my ears).
