Yahoo Names Best and Worst Hair Bands

05/02/2008
.
(antiMusic) Yahoo's Top List blogger Rob O'Connor took on "hair metal" this week, though his use the term is pretty loose. In two separate lists, he gave us his picks for the top 25 best and the 25 worst. Somehow My Chemical Romance didn't make either list. Here are the no. 1 picks from both lists:

Best: Guns n' Roses - Appetite For Destruction ensured this volatile bunch of ne'er-do-wells their place in hair-metal history. (And Axl was pretty quick to tone down the aqua-net.) Combining punk, metal and pop in one slamming freight train, Guns n' Roses in one brief flicker of tension jumped to the head of the class and apparently will spend the rest of their days doing other things. Even if Chinese Democracy ever does surface, who will really think of it as the work of Guns n' Roses? Without Slash? Without Izzy? Without Duff? It's like getting a peanut-butter cup with no chocolate, no peanut butter and only an oily rapper.

Worst: Poison - Why? Do you have to ask? For "Unskinny Bop." For "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." For "Nothin' But a Good Time." For a cover of "Your Mama Don't Dance," already one of the worst songs of all time, even before Poison touched it. Have you ever heard Rikki Rockett or C.C. DeVille speak? Have you listened to these albums? They've sold over 25 million albums? And Bret Michaels still needs to do a reality TV show? Great, he's no longer the singer of a band but an understudy for Flavor Flav.

Don't get mad at us, the lists were made by - this guy.. so go read the full lists here.
