Top 20 Hair Metal Albums of the Eighties

Recommended Posts

Yeah, they dressed funny and their lyrics often lacked the angst and agonized self-awareness that we’ve come to expect in this decade of the rock and roll sissy-band, but the pop metal acts of the Eighties produced some top-shelf albums and some first class musicians during their short reign. In chronological order, these are the 20 best records woven, steamed and blow-dried by the most esteemed members of rock and roll’s Hair Club for Men before they were abruptly given the hook.

One of the main features of metal guitar technique that developed during the `80`s/hair period was guitar " Shredding"....Shred guitar or "Shred" refers to lead electric guitar playing that relies heavily on fast passages....the act of playing fast passages on an electric guitar is termed ‘shredding’....

In fact in 1974 the German band Scorpions used their new guitarist Ulrich Roth for their album "Fly to the Rainbow", for which the title track features Roth performing "..."one of the most menacing and powerful whammy-bar dive bombs ever recorded". A year later, Roth's solo guitar playing for the album "In Trance "...would become the prototype for shred guitar...

In 1978 Van Halen" released "Eruption"... a blistering aural assault of solo electric guitar from axe wizard Eddie Van Halen which featured rapid "tapping", which "had rarely been heard in a rock context before." It has been argued that it is this "...record...above any other, that spawned the genre of Shred."

`80`s players like Yngwie Malmsteen, George Lynch, and Randy Rhoads...and contemporary guitarists like the late Dimebag Darrell further refined the "shredding" style...

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
