"Hair" metal is subjective, obviously. †Every city had 'em. †What are yours?

A few from the Twin Towns [will not include the killer Slave Raider]:


[Including a young Lance King]


[yes - same band that had to change their name to Hericane Alice]

Lol I was going to post them, but figured they were pretty well known, so didn't think they would fit the category. Plus I don't wanna claim them as fellow Vegas natives. lol!

My neck o' the woods (Northern NJ) had Trixter, who of course were fairly well known. We also had American Angel and Danger Danger.

Nada, that I know of at least. All Fresno ever had was Stavesacre (gross) and The Crucified (right on). Pretty mediocre slice of California livin' haha.

I used to love that Black N Blue album. Still like a few songs on it, but it's pretty bad mostly. At least to me it is.

I was living in Jackson, TN when hair metal was in full bloom and we had Blue Tears:



And Memphis was only about 60 miles away and they had Tora Tora who often get lumped in with hair metal bands but to me they're more sleaze:

Santa Cruz

Obviously Hanoi Rocks, too, but I wouldn't call them unknown.

Roughhouse from the Philly suburbs...



They originally were known as Teeze and played all the local Philly clubs back in the day. They would eventually change their name to Roughhouse and release one s/t album, then fade into obscurity.

Fun Fact: Nu-metal guitarist and convicted pedophile Tripp Eisen started out in this glam outfit, then know as "Rex" Eisen.

EDIT: Thanks to the power of the internet, you can hear the only Teeze album in all their glammy glory...


And watch a reunion gig from 2016...

Firehouse and Animal Bag are from my neck of the woods. I know Firehouse got pretty popular. Animal Bag played all the clubs but decided to move to LA. Where they eventually ended up with a record deal.

Sure did! †At the New Daisy on Beale Street. Also saw Rock City Angels and Eric Gale there.

Roxx Gang, which got signed to a major label and even had Ratt producer Beau Hill behind the knobs on their ' Things You've Never Done Before', by the time the album was released, the pop/hair metal party was over.

I actually found that album on CD a while back. I had a vinyl copy and was shocked to find it on CD.

I had it on vinyl and found it on CD, dirt cheap years ago.

I went to high school with these guys (SAGE from Knoxville, TN), not really a hair band but more like a Van Halen type band. The guitarist, Travis Wyrick went on to produce P.O.D., Disciple and many other bands. I bought the tape of Sage from Travis in the cafeteria.



Most of their stuff is not on YouTube. I have it the albums as downloads tho. Play them from time to time.

Used to go see them all the time playing the clubs. Saw them open for Bad Company as well.

Not exactly hair metal per se, but close. This is actually very early incarnation of Rellik, before Mike Moore joined on vocals.



Another not-really-hair-metal-but-close band from Sharks town. RAPIDFIRE, which rose out of the ashes of seminal Bay Area thrash legends HELLHOUND
