"Dude, wait'll the ladies see my new spandex!"

Today has been crazy, so I haven't had much time to work on the blog. However, while perusing today, I found something that's worth noting. The site is asking readers to pick "The ultimate 80s hair band" from a collection of candidates "sporting mile-high hairdos, outrageous spandex costumes, and a party-hearty attitude to match."

While the contest topic is certainly amusing, picking the "ultimate" hair-metal band seems a daunting task, primarily because there are so many different criteria to consider in the selection process. Best group from a musical standpoint? Probably Skid Row, possibly Poison. Most absurd high hair? Gotta be Britney Fox. Best groupies? Undoubtedly Motley Crue in their heyday. Meanest? Probably Dokken. Harshest screech? Anyone who's ever heard "Fly to the Angels" knows that's Slaughter. See, there are just too many tough decisions to make. In any case, the link is worth at least a quick glance because, if not for anything else, the photos are pretty damn funny.

Here's a shot of Ratt back in the day. I wouldn't want to meet THOSE dudes in a dark alley!
