    Sometimes I wonder if "Hair Metal" isn't just a question of time until teens start making Bands and playing it and girls totally going for it again. If you asked me this 10-15 years ago I would say nope, not a chance, but after watching what most new "metal bands" and their shitty super violent 10-20 guys kicking around audiences have become, im certain there where will be some sort of going back to it. I'm also pretty sure girls will driving the style come back.

    Just this past Sunday, I overheard my 16-year old nephew say to someone on video game chat (whatever the fuck it is) "no dude, that shit isn't rock. This is fucking rock" and proceeded to put on Appetite. Maybe things are turning around? After all, he did select GnR's one good album.

    Hair Metal worship comes in cycles, just like 60s and garage rock revival. I was totally into 80s music and I graduated in 2004 at the height of nu-metal. You could argue bands like Falling in Reverse and that one A7X album were some kind of attempt at Hair Metal worship as well. So it's out there, just not enough and not done well enough but it's out there.

    This song always used to fuck with me because, if memory serves, it's by "one hit wonder" Roxette but it sounds like "one hit wonder" Savage Garden.

    Roxette a one hit wonder? They've sold like 60 million albums with 4 albums selling over 5 million copies. By these standards there are like a handful of artists that aren't one hit wonders (or that are even one hit wonders).

    That singer's got some pipes. It's refreshing to hear good vocals in metal as the growling, angsty, fake tough-guy bullshit gets old for me.

    Does this suggest we'll start hearing guitar solos on the radio again?
    We're all musicians, still searching for our roots.
