p.s. my fav 60's and 70's bands had hair too! In fact I saw Black Sabbath, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Jefferson Starship, Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa in concert, plus some lesser known ones too, like Mountain, Traffic, Jethro Tull, Cat Stevens, and most had LOTS of hair!

Kurt was only a couple of years younger than me. If he were still alive today he would be middle aged. The one good thing about dying young is that is how people will remember you.

60's and 70's are and will forever be my favorite music decades. I also wish I could bring Kurt cobain back from the dead, marry him and then force him to make music again ;)
Kinda depressing that all my favorite artists are gone :(

If you look through my iPod you would see that music from the 80's is considerably less than any other decade.

I HATED Poison, Whitesnake! Warrant! W.A.S.P, and I wasn't a big Motley Crue fan. But I did like Queensryche, Ratt, Extreme and Cinderella

uh, Aerosmiths first album came out in the mid 70's and Van Halens first came out in 78, 79..and I think A.C./DC came out in the 70s also.. so I don't think they qualify as "hair bands"

about half of what I listed was "older". my point being - you can't sit back and bitch and say "oh this music these says - back in my day...". music is more spontaneous and more creative than ever...with more accessibility. and easier to find! you can't find anything, that's your fault.

A lot of those bands you listed have been around for over a decade. They have staying power because they are good musicians. A lot of newer musicians nowadays are the ones who are truly lackluster.

Today's artists are just not very creative. I'll give you that there are a handful of good artists, but again most are repetitive and blah.

Does he count as a hair band? I thought hair band was heavy metal.

if you think today is bad, you're not looking hard enough. there are SO many more outlets for music now...and some great groups out there...more so than even with the Internet making major labels and "A&R" pointless. the 80's was the lowest of the low.

Or two decades and you have The Beatles, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, The Doors, etc.

more variety now, more musicians able to self promote without the major label's A&R debacle...less mainstream shoving it down your throat (you think it's bad now). if you see that schlock that you don't like now, it's your own fault. there are way too many other venues to get good music.

Hair bands? Just thinking about that music puts me in a bad mood.

I was super excited when Rock of Ages came out on Broadway. If you ever get a chance, see the live show drunk or high and you'll relive your love of hair bands.

Is that sarcasm?? I really hope so. There is so much better music out there. Just go back one decade and you have Led Zep, the Who, Aerosmith, when they were good. I'm just saying that there was so much more out there.

Thank God Nirvana ushered in the "Grunge" era, and killed the popularity of "hair bands"!!!! I graduated in 87, and just to spite me my class voted a Bon Jovi song as our class song!!! I don't know the name because I hate that music!
