Hair Metal Hits: Match the song to the band

A glamorous journey through hair metal history!


It's time to break out the Aqua Net and crank up the ol' cassette player! We're celebrating hair metal in all its ridiculousness. 

The genre is often parodied and frequently looked back on with ridicule, but we say there were some worthwhile songs! So let's see whether you remember those songs, and, crucially, whether you remember who sang them! 

Good luck, have fun, and rock on! Be sure to share your thoughts and score in the comments section below.

  1. "Welcome to the Jungle"
  2. "Pour Some Sugar on Me"
  3. "Every Rose Has its Thorn"
  4. "Cherry Pie"
  5. "We're Not Gonna Take It"
  6. "Here I Go Again"
  7. "Kickstart My Heart"
  8. "Come On Feel the Noize"
  9. "Rock 'n Roll All Nite"
  10. "Panama"

You got 10 out of 10
Rock on! You nailed it!
Too Easy, should have put some more obscure songs in there. And I had to laugh when they listed STYX as a hair band choice...

Maybe I'm alone but I absolutely hated music in the 1980s. Give me some hard rock or some grunge. Even disco. Or jazz. Or classical. Anything but hair bands and synthesizers from London

When did KISS and Van Halen become hair bands?

Van Halen maybe, but Kiss and Styx, nope.

10/10; I got a perfect score even though I am not a heavy metal fan.

I just thought of another band. Kingdom Come. They had a hit with "Get It On". When that song first came out radio DJ's thought it was a new Led Zeppelin song.

Fun fact: "Cum On Feel the Noize" was a cover. It was written by Nigel "Noddy" Holder and originally recorded by Holder's band, Slade. Slade had hits with "Run Runaway" and "My Oh My."
