Yeah you're right about that. Ultimately, staying power is the most important thing.
I wouldn't consider half of those bands to be "hair bands". I don't have a problem with that title, but I just wouldn't classify them that way. AK brought up Tesla... and I feel the same way about them. They were a straight up rock and roll band, not what I'd call Hair Band at all, and I LOVE Tesla as much as anyone on earth, as well as most of the bands on the list.
No KISS on the list either or Scorpions or Twisted Sister. This really surprises me!
I would have put Motley Crue as #1, most definitely.
Agreed...I think if there was a king of the genre, it would have to go to Quiet Riot or Crue..and IMO CRUE edges them out a bit on the strength of their hair, tunes, attitude, make up, album art, stage shows...ect.
