I was having a little friendly 'comment war' with a MySpace friend of mine. We started off trying to 'out gay' each other with band photos, and then I ended up going back to funny looking 'cock rock' band pics... Such as THIS one!
These guys were a band called "Nitro", which I think was a little less known. It was at this point I won the comment war. lmao! :)

Was this the classic "Hair Band Pose" for all hair bands of the 80s? The two guys on each end always turned and holding their arms up like they're going to kick someone's ass, or as if they are having to "protect" the "pretty" ones in the middle so aren't attacked by the bad man? lol

I just got a kick out of that, and it crossed my mind.

This site listed their idea of the "Top Ten Greatest Hair Metal Bands" as follows:

1. Poison
2. Mötley Crüe
3. Bon Jovi
4. Warrant
5. Whitesnake
6. Twisted Sister
7. Skid Row
8. Cinderella
9. Ratt
10. Dokken

I'm inclined to disagree... I never really liked Dokken at all, so I would rip them off the list. Ratt would move down closer to the bottom, as would Cinderella, and hey, where are the "Bullet Boys" and "Faster Pussycat"? I'm going to have to throw my own list together here. I have to think on it though.

How about you guys, did you get into hair metal? If so, what were your favorite hair bands or songs??

Anyways, I will be putting in a new Audio Podcast tonight, and was thinking about putting in more "Teen Journal". The other day when I was reviewing it, I discovered the section on Larry R. (My First Real Kiss). I thought about giving you a front row seat to that. It was pretty exciting for me being my first real kiss from a guy, as mentioned in my wedding anniversary post, "On Kissing Frogs" from back in December. As I looked back through the journal entries, however, there are more details that I had forgotten.

In retrospect, I always wonder what might have happened if I had actually gone all the way with Larry R. He wasn't good news in the least, he was older, I probably would've ended up getting pregnant or something. However it has to be better than my real first time with Larry B (who was a total dud). (Geez, what was with me and the Larry's??).

My thoughts as you can see are scattered some today as I have combined thoughts of sex with hair bands, which I know always went well together but now, looking back are quite comical.

I think it's time to crank it up, hair band lovers, here is "Smooth Up In Ya" by The Bullet Boys... go on, sing along!! lol Then I'll be back in a bit with a podcast from the Boy Crazy Teen Jackie. [That's pretty good for Hump Day, right?]

I pretty much listened to all those bands back in the day. When I was in high school it was all metal baby! ;-)

Well Whitesnake yes but I never really thought of them as true hair metal... 1. because they were a kick arse blues rock band before the 1987 hair look and 2. they played much better stuff than others.

So no I never was into it - I went from Purple, Zep, Sabbath to the Maiden, Saxon, Judas Priest era then straight to Metallica, Megadeth etc.

I've never heard of a hair metal band, or what ever in the hell they are. I'm just an old country shit kicker and proud of it.

Love Elvis also, even he didn't do much 'country'.

I think brushing hair and sex go great together. But what in the hell do I know, chicks and I just drive each other more nuts so I pretty much avoid them anymore.

Other than cyber sex sometimes. LOL
