Who in their right mind could consider themselves "vain" when they look like that?  Why Davy Vain of course, the guy who founded this San Francisco, CA band back in 1986.  Davy Vain, who was actually a record producer, created a demo with Kirk Hammett's (of Metallica) help, and soon after decided to form a band.  In their early days, Vain was a regular on the band circuit in both the Bay area and Los Angeles, even opening up for Guns N Roses. 

By 1988, Vain had signed with Island Records, and their debut album, No Respect, hit shelves in 1989.  Many of you will remember the cool song "Beat the Bullet" from this album.  The album actually peaked at 154 on the Billboard Top 200.  Vain toured with Skid Row in support of this album.  By 1990, Vain had started recording a second album, All Those Strangers, and by 1991, Polygram Records (had acquired Island Records) had dropped the band before it could be released (it was finally released in 2010).  After losing a couple of band members and gaining a couple of new ones, including drummer Steven Adler of Guns 'N' Roses, Vain changed their name to "Road Crew", which was Adler's old band that had featured Slash and Duff McKagan of Guns 'N' Roses.   

Road Crew didn't last long due to Adler's drug problems, so Vain was reformed in 1993.  Like many metal bands in the early 1990's, it was hard to make a go of it.  However, as the years have gone by, Vain could be found both in the studio and on tour (think Rocklahoma, Rock the Bayou, etc.).  Their new releases have been well received.  At the time of this writing, the Vain Discography was as follows:

  • 1989: No Respect
  • 1994: Move on It
  • 1995: Fade
  • 2005: On the Line
  • 2010: All Those Strangers (from 1991)
  • 2011: Enough Rope
  • 1989
