Note: A few bands on their may not be pure hair/glam metal (Tesla, GNR, Aerosmith), but they share a lot of characteristics of hair/glam metal. Their hairstyle and image was more or less the same. Their music was standard hair metal, although they were more sleazier, edgier, bluesier than most hair metal bands, they had the pop hooks, shout along gang choruses, and killer heavy guitar riffs. Plus their music was catchy and memorable too. So, if they don’t fit into hair metal, they surely fit into hair/glam metal, which is why they are included on this list.
