The Hair Metal 100: Ranking the ’80s Greatest Glam Bands—The Final 20!

Counting down from #20 to #1: who's the hardest and heaviest haired of all?

At last, we approach the apex of flared-up follicle and shredding Flying V resplendence. The Hair Metal 100 has run the gamut from the ridiculous (Nelson) to the sublime (Warlock) to the ridiculously sublime (Love/Hate) to the sublimely ridiculous (Odin).

And isn’t that the very spirit of hair metal itself?

With #1 in sight, let’s all tease up our epic tresses, coat our kissers in candy-colored cosmetics, slip into the gaudiest spandex and/or most lascivious lace-up leather the world’s trashiest lingerie shops can provide, and storm the stage of unbridled rock-and-roll overwhelm along with our glamtastic heroes.

If you’re ready to rock in that fully, insanely committed manner, here now are numbers 20 to number one.
