Were they not an eighties band? Did they not have long hair? Did they not have a lead singer who jumped around the stage like a monkey? Case closed.

I voted VH. But I agree with HRJ, I never ever thought of Van Halen as a "Hairband".

Do you consider Iron Maiden a "Hairband"? They were big in the 80s, They had long hair, and when I saw them Bruce Dickinson jumped around on stage....well like a monkey I guess. Just wonderin'

Yes, albeit an unusually ugly looking one.

Except the bass player for Bon Jovi isn't a member of the band, just a hired gun.

Their two best albums came out in 1978 and 1979

Exclamation Re: Van Halen vs. Bon Jovi - the battle of the hair bands!

Yes. Perhaps you're right. There was actually no need for them to struggle on and inflict themselves on so many unlucky radio listeners in the eighties.

Van Halen, because unlike Bon Jovi, they didn't repackage the same three songs into half of their albums.

Well I guess the WHO were a hair band cause they had long hair and three of them jumped around the stage like monkey's too.
The meat of the Who's career was in the sixties though.

Quote:
A band with long hair doesn't make it a typical "hairband".
I've provided an objective definition. If you don't like mine, you must have a better definition of your own. It must, however, be objective and thus universally applicable meaning it cannot reference certain bands as examples. The ball is in your court.
