    Wrong, there are plenty of cool hair metal bands, its just that its out of fashion to like hair metal bands.

    Just because Candlemass is considered "cool", does not make them any better than, for example Ratt, Icon, or Black and Blue.

    I posted the Vinnie Vincent invasion which is the same band but with a different guitarist.

    I would agree. I pretty much detested all the hair, glam metal when it had it's run but I was a huge fan of Ratt. Also loved the pre 1985 Motley Crue releases.

    And let us not forget, another band that may be considered cool, Pantera, started as a hair metal band.

    Some people say that Iron maiden is a hair metal band.

    WHICH THEY ARE NOT!

    Yes, there's the Spandex and yes there's the big hair but you will NEVER hear Maiden do a Power ballad and they never wore girl-type make up.

    They are one of the bands I clung to during the hair metal onslaught.
    I noticed some one posted an Accept video here. I think people are getting confused thinking that any metal band in the 80's would be considered hair metal.

    Ratt was great, so was Motleys 2 first albums, after that it went downhill fast

    yes, even though they played metal in the 80's and most of them still had hair, they would not be a part of the typical hair metal band category.

    Accepts Restless and wild is awesome, their best album!!

    yes, loggerboots, you DO win. that was hysterical. I especially like the completely incongrous shred solo on the pointy quad neck. and that's the biggest hair I've ever seen.

    I never heard of these guys but they are horrible.
    On a side note, I had the guitar that matched the bass, Aria Pro II. I thought it was cool, but then again, I was 18 and it was 1985.
