    I am putting together a 2-3 disc set of the best hair bands and I am looking for suggestions of bands and their most popular songs.

    One of my all-time favorite bands is Heart. I prefered their harder-edged seventies sound, but they made a big comeback in the eighties--and their hair was very big--both the Wilson sisters as well as the male band members.
    Their biggest hits during that period were What About Love, Never, These Dreams, Nothin' At All, Alone, Who Will You Run To, and There's The Girl. (All I Wanna Do was also a big hit but that was 1990.)

    I don't know if I would call them a "Hairband", but to this very day, I LOVE 'Def Leppard'!

    mmmm... hair bands
    Stryper is by far the best, black and gold tights with giant salads and God rock to boost.
    [​IMG]
    and honorable mention goes to:
    Petra
    White Lion
    Cinderella
    DISCLAIMER:
    a hobby of mine is doing jigsaw puzzles of old hair bands and my choices have no basis on musical ability but how cool their puzzles are.

    I pretty much HATED all of the hair bands of the 80's, but if I had to pick one as a "least hated" it would be Motley Crue.

    Thanks for the responses, but I still need some more
    I remember seeing a 100 Greatest Hair Bands special on VH1 but I can't find the list on their web site, do any of you know where I can get this list?

    My wife and I are 80's rockers ourselves (Heavy Metal) and we're not sure VH-1 had a 100 greatest "HAIR" bands special, heck we've heard of most 80's bands and it is hard to believe there are 100 hair bands worthy to make a 100 greatest hair band special.But we most certainly could be wrong on this.
    But we did watch a greatest "Rock" bands of the 80's special, which did feature many good Hair bands.
    Remember "MY" definition of a "HAIR" band is a band like Poison(Glam, girly, flash in the pans). For example Iron Maiden had lots of hair, but are not considered a "HAIR" band.
    I'm sorry I cannot direct you to a list.
    But I can name you 100 great rock bands from the 80's if you like.
