Hair Metal

The 1970's metal movement in Great Britain had a major influence on the heavy metal music of the USA. The metal bands of the late 1970's gave rise to the hair metal of the late 1980's, By around 1992, only a few hair bands viably remained, and everyone else had to get jobs at Wal-mart. Although the guitar solo may be a thing of the past, we haven't forgotten about it on this site. Not only do we feature mainstream bands like AC/DC, Warrant, Poison, and Van Halen, but we also head down the more obscure road, with metal bands like Orion the Hunter, GTR, and Kick Axe.
