    The Extreme Hair Metal Song Countdown

    I work very early in the morning and have a couple of hours to myself before anyone else comes into my office. I've been listening to the Slippery When Wet station on IHeart Radio at 11 and it just makes me smile. Such cheesy, fun goodness in the early morning. So, this got me to thinking as to what are the most fun, personal favorite, great songs of this time? Let's find out...let's have a countdown...I'd like to get at least 100 songs on it. Do you need to list 100 songs? Well, if you'd like to, by all means, but no...you need to list at least 25 and hopefully more. Rank them however makes you happy...it's all just for fun.

    The Strict Rules:

    1. At least 25 Songs...100 cap

    2. All songs nominated will make the list somewhere...meaning, there are no "bad" songs. Whatever the number of songs, will be the countdown. If we get more than 100, those outside the 100 will still get listed, but maybe listed as just "missing the list," we'll see if we can get that many.

    3. You have the rest of the month to get me a list. Two weeks should be long enough, it's not rocket surgery. Lists due by Jan. 31st

    4. What's Hair/Glam Metal? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glam_metal

    5. List of bands: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ds_and_artists. Predecessors like Alice Cooper/Hanoi Rocks...etc...count, as do revival bands like Steel Panther, etc. Let's use some common sense however...

    Any questions...please ask...

    I knew a couple would be in right off the bat, now we just need the others to get in.

    Flock also sent me an interesting question that I'll also address here.

    He asked if it mattered when the song came out. Bon Jovi and Ratt being the two bands he asked about, since they're still around and active. Year of the release does not matter, just that they are a Certified G(lam)/Hair Band. Plus, you have bands like Alice Cooper/KISS being mainly 70's acts and Steel Panther being more current, but still carrying the mantle...so, year doesn't matter...just stylistically...I know Bon Jovi isn't nearly as hair metal as they were, but that's splitting hairs as well...they're still a card carrying member of the acid washed, Aqua Net and guyliner crew...in my book at least.

    As hair/glam metal? Never in my book do they come close, but used the wikipedia list for a reason. Heart/Journey are just rock bands.

    You still have time to amend your list, but that's up to you...

    list sent and it's amazing


    i stayed away from ballads because it would have added to much of a challenge to narrow it down

    Even though I didn't use any of their songs I WOULD include Heart as a Hair Band if you go by the way they changed their Look and especially the sound of their records from the self titled heart album all the way up to Brigade they definately fit in.

    Re: The Extreme Hair Metal Song Countdown

    Alright folks...apparently going by what Wikipedia has categorized as Glam/Hair Metal isn't going over well. So, I'm not going to ask you to edit your lists anymore even if there is a glaring addition. Mikk, if you want to say Pop-era Heart and Journey is hair metal..fine, I don't care. I'll post everything and let you guys judge from there.

    3 lists are in
