A large segment of music fans used to dump on hair bands, but by the mid-90's, many of those same fans had grown tired of "mopey" grunge and were clamoring for the return of feel-good hair metal.
Yeah I liked Cinderella quite a bit. Nobody's Fool was my favorite, I also liked Shake Me. Seems to me i'm missing one of theirs off the top of my head but can't recall which one.
Also liked in particular order - Whitesnake, Dokken, G'N'R, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Poison
I guess you could sorta lump these guys in with them a bit also but they were more metal. Metallica, Megadeath, AC/DC, Motley Crue
I hated Winger, absolutely hated them.
