Anytime that I think of WASP I remember the infamous Chris Holmes interview from The Decline of Western Civilization Pt II:The Metal Years.He's in a floating lounge chair in a swimming pool drunk off his ass from Smirnoff vodka with his mom sitting poolside for the interview.

Re: 80's Hair Bands...

I found out something interesting about the Sea Hags.Apparently Kirk Hammett like their sound and produced some of their demo tracks when they were trying to land a record contract.

Don't forget that Pantera started out as a hair metal band. lol As for Kiss,they "jumped the shark" with the release of Dynasty,which was their disco album. roll Once that album came out,I quit listening to KISS and started listening to Van Halen.

Re: 80's Hair Bands...

Man...reading all of the band names, so many memories come back. Good & bad.
There were so many good bands, but so many bad ones. At the height of it, it was so saturated that it was bound to fall to pieces.

During that time, if you wrote a kickass ballad, had long hair & wore tight-ass pants, you would have chicks all over you. Perfect example...Warrant. They knew how to do it. Jani Lane was actually a very good song writer/musician.

My ipod has a lot of many glam/metal bands on it. Because it's usually on shuffle, I crack up when a song from that genre/time period plays, especially White Lion or Slaughter. But you know I'm still singing along. lol

Re: 80's Hair Bands...

I still can't figure out why a whole generation of guys wore tight clothes (often with sequins, leopard prints, etc.), as well as dangley earrings and make-up, did up their hair like chicks, sucked in their cheeks for pictures, and we all somehow thought they were cool.  And then, of all guys, Rob Halford turns out to be gay.  The '80s, man.  Even as a kid I would sometimes ask myself, "WTF are we doing?'

I wore out the first LA Guns tape riding in the garage BITD.  Anybody ever get into the London Quireboys?  I just recently started listening to them thanks to Hair Nation.

Thank goodness for speed metal! For me in the '80s my metal preferences were either something loud and evil,or some band whose lead guitarist is a wicked shredder. cool

You're right. Thrash/speed medal had tight pants just like the hair/glam metal bands.

I never understood why it was such a big deal to like different genres of metal. Hell...to like ALL different genres of music. BITD I listened to all types of music...from Cinderella (under-rated IMO) to Metallica to RUN-DMC to Michael Jackson (He was a bad MFer.).

To this day I have the craziest mix of music in my iPod. One minute you'll be listening to Anthrax or Death Angel. The next minute Kelly Clarkson or Beyonce will be on. For the most part, I like it all. Still trying to stomach some country though. hmm

Re: 80's Hair Bands...

Has anybody mentioned Stryper, the Jesus Metal crossover band?  They're apparently still touring!

Anthrax was another early favorite of mine and a bit more respectable from an Appalachian teenager's perspective than most.  Their glam phase was mercifully short, and they always had some of the best riffs in the business.

I'm an Anthrax fan. Love there stuff. I personally like what they did with John Bush more than Joey Belladonna. And that's not to say that I dislike the Joey stuff. Those albums are kickass. I just think the albums with John Bush just really took Anthrax to a different level in their playing and writing.

Stryper! Yellow & Black Attack! They're really good musicians. They never really bothered me. A lot of people talked sh!t about them being Christian, but whatever. When it comes to song writing, you write about what is in your heart & head at the time. Theirs just happened to be about Christianity.

There are so many, but I can't think of them at the moment, but who remembers:
- Trixter
- Every Mother's Nightmare
- Faster Pussycat
- Bang Tango
- Enuff Z Nuff

I'd say the Bush albums have a sort of rough-hewn maturity about them, but I gotta say that the first two minutes of "Among the Living" epitomizes the Anthrax sound for me and all that is awesome about '80s metal.  They were just going for it.

I was talking with one of my buddies a couple of weeks ago about Queensryche and he told me that their new singer Todd La Torre is actually Geoff Tate's son in-law.

I saw an interview with Jani Lane where he said that he wished that he never wrote the song,"Cherry Pie." He said that the "Cherry Pie" album was originally going to be called,"Uncle Tom's Cabin" but the record label wanted one more track for the album so he wrote the song "Cherry Pie" in about five minutes,they recorded it,and the record label renamed the album,"Cherry Pie."

Winger was another one of those bands that I thought was seriously overrated. roll I mentioned Seduce in an earlier posting here,now there's a band that should have gotten some serious attention but didn't. Seduce was one of the few hair metal bands that my friends who were into thrash/speed metal liked because of their edgy sound.I always thought that Seduce was way better than Poison,Ratt,Winger,Bon Jovi,and most of the other hair metal bands from that era.I totally agreed with a fellow Seduce fan when he posted on their Facebook page that comparing Poison to Seduce is like comparing Sesame Street to Pulp Fiction. cool
