Hair metal

Hair metal is a term used to describe a type of heavy metal music, and its associated fashion, that arose in the late 1970s in the United States. It was a strong force in popular music throughout the 1980s and very early 1990s. Such bands are frequently called hair bands. Pejorative terms for hair metal include poodle rock, due to the teased, bushy hair of many performers, butt rock, or other derogatory terms, such as cock rock reflect the fact that many hair metal lyrics focus on womanizing, sexual deeds and a lack of respect for women

Fans of the genre usually refer to it as glam metal, referencing the earlier British glam rock movement, and consider hair metal to be a borderline insult. During its heyday the genre was generally referred to as heavy metal or simply metal; the fixation on the outrageous clothing and hairstyles of its most popular bands arose during the 1990s, after hair metal had been overshadowed by the simpler, back-to-basics appeal of grunge.
