hair metal votes; ball of confusion [updated]
I've been told I need to make the guidelines for voting on the new entry to the HoF clearer.
Not looking for the greatest hair or biggest hair, per se, but the best band that had big hair.
Yes, I know it sounds like an oxymoron, but we are nomingating in the category of BEST HAIR METAL BAND.
Leave your nominations here instead of there, and don't forget a testimonial.
Update: To further define hair metal:Wikipedia -
Hair metal is a type of hard rock that arose in the late 1970s, in the United States, and was a strong force in popular music throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Such bands are frequently called hair bands. Pejorative terms for hair metal include poodle rock, due to the teased, bushy hair of many performers, or other derogatory terms, such as cock rock reflect a fixation on sexual lyrics and deeds and the lack of respect afforded by some music critics.
Though hair metal started in the 70's, techinically, we are going to stay on course here with 80's hair metal. For specifics, see the list here, the requirements for hair metal bands here, another list here, a hair metal playlist here.
I wish my old friend Brandy was around; she's the hair metal expert. And where's Mikey when you need him?
Ok, read those links. You'll understand what hair metal is. Though some of you, I suspect, need no reminding.
