Top 50 Hair/glam Metal Albums

Hair Metal. Arguably the most reviled genre in music. Although this reputation is well deserved in some places, there were actually quite a few gems released in this era of excess. Granted, there is no depth in hair metal, nor was it ever intended to be there in the first place. All of these records can be enjoyed if the listener takes it for what it was intended for: good time rock n roll. To ride a massive cliche, if you find yourself in the need to crush beers, drive fast, and bang chicks on hot summer nights in the city, this is the shit to do it to. Note: I did not include Guns n Roses as I consider them apart from these bands, more of a true hard rock band like AC/DC. I did not include Kiss because I consider them a Classic Rock band. Let the flaming begin!
