Hair Metal That Doesn't Suck

As a whole, the hair metal genre is pretty lame and dated, but here's 10 records that still hold up well today.
1Cinderella
Night Songs


Probably Cinderella's heaviest record, and by far their best.
2Dokken
Under Lock and Key


Dokken might have the hair metal image, but their music has always been a step above their contemporaries. 1980's George Lynch was a guitar genius.
3Tesla
Mechanical Resonance


Cut past the acoustic ballads, and Tesla was a hard rock powerhouse in the late 80's and early 90's.
4Motley Crue
Shout at the Devil


Album kicks just as much ass today as it did back in 83.
5Krokus
Headhunter


Are these guys hair metal? They get lumped together with bands like Poison and Quiet Riot, so I'm gonna add them regardless.
6Scorpions
Blackout


Klaus Meine has one of the greatest voices rock, and this album is riff city.
7Whitesnake
Whitesnake


Kinda wish this was their breakout record was "Slide It In", but this record is no slouch either.
8Def Leppard
Pyromania


It was a tough call between this and "Hysteria", but this one has a harder edge with songs like 'Die Hard the Hunter' and 'Billy's Got a Gun'.
9W.A.S.P.
W.A.S.P.


"The Headless Children" is their best work, but that one really isn't a hair metal record.
10Ratt
Invasion of Your Privacy


'Lay it Down's" opening riff might just be my favorite of all time.
