Which 80's Hair-Metal Band Should You Be In?

Beneath your makeup, perm, and leather pants, who are you REALLY?

Pick a covering for your head:

A good band name should feature:

How good-looking are you? (Be honest; we're all friends here.)

When choosing a drummer, you would look for someone...

Guitar solos should be...

How much of a party animal are you?

The best date night involves...

Which pants would really complete an outfit?

Which of these lyrics strikes you as a piece of pure poetry?

After your musical heyday is over, what are your plans?

Motley Crue

Motley Crue

You're very conscious of your image. You can pull off the "are they Satanic or not?" rocker look, and you can also pull off the "are they girls or not?" perm-and-makeup look. That makes up for what some would call a lack of musical talent. And even though you can't wail like Coverdale or shred like Slash, you've still got a long list of hits to be proud of. The downside is that you don't know when to quit, and everything after Dr. Feelgood is pretty lame.

Poison

Poison

Oh my goodness, look what the cat dragged in! You love to party and you love to look your best. In fact, looking good is more important to you than sounding good. You live hard and live for the now, but you're not afraid to change a bit to keep with the times. That's how you, unlike your contemporaries, managed to actually have hit songs in the 90s.

Guns 'n' Roses

You're not really into the whole makeup-and-perm thing. You're more of a bad boy (or bad girl), and you tend to rock a little harder than some of your contemporaries. You also party a little harder, too, and that may adversely affect your future. But you'll always be able to look back at that moment in the November Rain video when Slash shredded while standing on a piano. Not even the nightmare of Chinese Democracy can take that away from you.

Whitesnake

Whitesnake

You're loaded with musical talent, and you have to be if you're going to keep up with Coverdale, Vandenburg, Vai, Sarzo, and Aldridge. In fact, you're so talented that the average listener can't truly appreciate all the technical subtleties of your music. That's alright, though, because even when your musical career slows down, you'll always have Tawny Kitaen to hang out with. Well, maybe not always...

Stryper

You're on a mission to rock, but on the Solid Rock. Thanks to your strong and uncompromising morals, you see the world in black and... well...yellow. Of course, some folks might find those morals questionable when it comes to your style of dress - apparently you don't feel convicted about the affect that your sensually-tight pants have on the ladies. Oh, and for some reason, you're really popular in Japan.

Def Leppard

Def Leppard

Unlike some of those "bad-boy" metal bands, you've got a real a sensitive side. Or at least, that's the image you like to portray in public. That's probably why you were popular with ladies of all ages in the 80s. Actually, it was mostly the pre-teens and the moms. That's good news now, because 30 years later, you've got a built-in fan base of eligible women who don't mind if you can't hit the high notes anymore.

Nelson

You've got plenty of talent, and you're pretty good-looking, but unfortunately, you achieved fame at a pivotal point in history - just when glamorous, leather-clad rocker gave way to dorky, tie-dye-clad pseudo-hippy/rocker. The musical world was pretty confused, too: Bands started using acoustic guitars on albums - and on more than just one song! Even worse, they stopped singing about sex and started singing about love. In short, it's not your fault that you weren't very cool. At least you had double-kick drum and pinch-harmonics on your album.

Judas Priest

Judas Priest

You rock hard, you wear studded-leather police outfits, and you can sing higher than Celine Dion. In short, you're a true 80s metal god. Granted, you have some flaws: You're not always comfortable with yourself, and you tend to hide important things from the public. You've also had some issues with addiction. That said, you're just about the only one of your contemporaries who actually rocked harder in the 90s than in the 80s... "Painkiller," anyone? Speaking of painkillers, you also learn from your mistakes - you can fight through things like overdoses and come away stronger.
