Poll: Hair Metal during/after "Grunge" takeover - who still carried the flame?

  1. Winger's "Pull" is a Helluva album - Junkyard Dog is up there with anything Soundgarden did (for the most part)

    If I could jump in: I grew up on hair metal and arena rock, and I was bitter about grunge. (I especially hated Pearl Jam, foolishly.)

    I started college in Texas in 1992, when GnR were the kings and Dr Feelgood singles were still getting good airplay. But dyed in the wool as I was, I still could recognize that "Come as You Are" and "Lithium" and "Hunger Strike" were a lot more interesting than what I had been playing all those years. By the end of 1992, I was already listening to hair metal as nostalgia and listening to Temple of the Dog nonstop in my dormroom.

    It all happened fast.

  4. got into HS in 1989, graduated (1 year late) in 1994.

    The sea change than happened in those years floors me to this date - not sure if any other sub-generation went through such a significant shift.

    Perhaps the kids who started HS in 2001 (Nu-Metal craze) and graduated in 2005 (garage band craze) felt something similar?

    Adrenalize was the last across-the-board number one glam metal album; US, UK, Canada, Australia.
