Never considered those "Hair Bands" of the 80s to be Metal although it was
tagged as Metal by most of the entertainment world back then. I always
thought of it as Glam Rock on Steroids. It was an offshoot of Rock that got
overnight success and spread like Disco in the 70s and finally burned out just
like Disco did. ... overkill due to overplayed and way too much emphasis put
on making videos around it that would get ratings on MTV.

What I considered True Metal took turn for the worse about that same time.
There's a group that loved to follow that kind of music, but after a certain point
it got unlistenable for me personally. Of what I called "Metal":

What I consider Metal OLD SCHOOL



(NSFW Lyrics)



CLASSIC METAL

Though not quite on the level of these mega bands, I figured I'd throw in a plug for some good ole SC hardcore/punk.

Anybody else part of this scene during late 90's - mid 2000's?

Well since this is a hard rock thread as well, I would think the hair bands qualify. They definitely aren't metal but are hard rock.

Yeah, just stating a personal opinion. Not that I didn't like some of those bands.
Like Disco, when it was pretty much all you heard on the radio in the Early
70s, there were a couple of artists especially early in it's emergence that I liked
(The Bee Gees re tooling to Disco), KC and the Sunshine Band, MFSB to name
a few. It just got old after a couple of years with all the cookie cutter stuff, and
eventually Older acts tried to cash in on it and that's when it got UGLY. KISS,
Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder ................

I really liked some of the early acts in that wave of Glam Rock / Hair Metal
(Whatever). Dokken, Cinderella, Motley Crue, Skid Row. It was good stuff early
on. I just didn't consider that "Heavy Metal".

Agreed. I was always a big fan of hair bands. I think they became their own genre for that reason. Love the guitar sound. I was a big fan of Cinderella. Hair bands definitely weren't metal and I don't think anyone would have considered them metal. Out of metal rose hair bands - a hard rock sound with pop friendly melodic guitars. It's unfortunate that some hair bands became more popular for their style rather than substance. However, there were some really good hair bands and musicians out there.

So hair bands weren't metal but there were definitely hair bands out there that put out good music and deserve to be mentioned in a hard rock category.
