Looks very '86 that photo. Could almost be Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Cinderella from that time. I guess '86-'87 was peak hair metal. I'm not really a fan of most of this era, though a couple of the big hair metal bands did have good early albums that I'm a fan of. Whether they are classed as hair metal, I don't know.

High 'n' Dry by Def Leppard

Too Fast For Love by Mötley Crüe

The closest thing I think we ever got to a hair metal / alt country album:


Heartbreak Station by Cinderella

And these guys were pretty great, especially live:


Wake Me When It's Over by Faster Pussycat

That's the Jake E. Lee, Ultimate Sin-era Ozzy band, so about 1986ish

Thanks everyone for your input to this thread, and particularly Rocky for your top 100 (I think I listened to all of them). I’ve enjoyed my tour through Hair Metal, ironically at an age when I’m losing my hair.

I’ve come up with a chronological list of 30 albums that I like from the era, and there are many isolated songs that I appreciate. It’s probably fair to say that hair metal isn’t my thing, as I don’t really like Motley Crüe and only truly like one Guns ‘n’ Roses song.

If anyone is interested, here is my list. I still like Van Halen, have an increased admiration and genuine like for Dokken and Stryper, a new found appreciation of Mr. Big, and concede reluctantly that Def Leppard and Whitesnake are really pretty great, maybe not in spite of their kitsch factor, but because of it.

The guitarists of the era were really pretty amazing.
