    where to start? So many to choose from....so many wigs, and so much spandex. Cinderalla, Poison, Nelson, White Snake.


    My personal favorite, for the sheer hilarity, was Winger.

    First off, that lead singer. Kip. Kip? Who the fuck is really named Kip?

    Then, there's his 500 dollar hairdo. Or wig. Never could figure that which it was.

    then there were the videos. What the hell was that little ballarina twirl, Kip was always doing? That little piroette with his bass, twirling around like he was gayer than Larry Craig?

    I'll give you Nelson and Winger, but the other three all had a few good tunes that still hold up IMO.

    yea, i dont care what people say Cinderella was a damn good bluesy rock band.


    Winger though... sheesh.. I kid you not, I picked up 2 winger vhs tapes for pure cheese enjoyment about 10 years ago. That was some of the funniest shit i've seen in a long time. After, I had to go watch Pantera's Vulgar videos just to wash out my mind.


    1. left handed drummer freak me out a little.

    2. metal and pirouette "spin and drop" dancing should never have been as closely associated.

    3. although Winger didn't start the practice of matching amazing guitar players with shitty bands during the glam metal years they sure as hell perfected the art of making that combination a failing venture.


    I submit almost everyone interviewed in the Decline of Western Civilization: The Metal Years who was not already in a signed band.

    ok. I admit it. I rocked out to the first Slaughter tape in 6th grade.

    I had the tape around the same time. I actually bought the CD around 5 years ago, and it is still in my truck today. Sometimes I'll listen to it.

    Does that make me a queefbag?

    no, it makes you the byproduct of the almost decade long disposable nature of our culture that loves to find something to identify with only to discard after we emulate the shit out of the innovators and move onto the next big thing to fall into. Good music can be found in almost any genre regardless of how fashionably dead the style might become. yet, the same thing happened with glam metal just as it did with grunge just as it did with punk just as it did with...

    don't forget all the prog rock wannabes that blow chunks.

    Although for me the jury is still out on Dream Theater. I just can't decide if they're really really good, or totally fucking lame. It's the most perplexing thing.
