    Nobody really ended it. The fans grew out of it and moved on with their lives, just like kids do with every music scene.

          What ended the hair band craze was hair metal turning into a caricature of itself, people being fed up with that, and the emergence of grunge which was seen as the anti hair metal music. The clearly marked turning point was nirvana coming out with teen spirit.

            btw, as for which hair metal band was responsible for the death of hair metal or at least personified what everyone started to dislike about hair metal, the band that always comes to mind for me is nitro. I've also heard other people mention pretty boy floyd as another one.

                A combination of the relatively make-up free GnR and Nirvana.

                  which is odd, because she was pissed at Prince.

                    Neither of those bands were anywhere near popular enough to have impacted Hair Metal's standing.

                      Nirvana.

                      And countless hair band guys have said that. There is story after story of hair band guys seeing the Nirvana "Smells Like Teen Spirit" getting mega-airplay on MTV and knowing it was over. All pictures of hair bands were pulled down overnight at MTV offices and up went anything from Seattle.

                      Best story regarding Nirvana killing the cash cow for hair bands comes from hair band manager Doc McGhee. He managed Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Skid Row and made a huge fortune during the hair band days. In the new "I Want My MTV" book he admits it was Nirvana that did in the hair bands and the way he tells it is funny as hell. He prefaces his story by saying that, yeah, he feels bad for guys with mental issues and is very sympathetic to suicide victims, but then he says that if Kurt had committed suicide just five years earlier he'd have about fifty million more in the bank!

                        Agree. They were barely blips on the radar screen.

                        It is hard to imagine any single band being hated and blamed for the death of hair metal than Warrant. If there is a band even more hated and to blame, I am not aware of it.

                        Nirvana and grunge had nothing to do with it.

                        They just happened to be the bands that were present NOT doing the hairband thing when people got sick of hairband music.

                        People weren't so much running TO grunge as they were running away from hair metal.

                        It could have just as easily been polka music that took it's place, but it was just natural that what took it's place was what many people considered the opposite of hair metal, but that was still rock.

                        Ok, so maybe polka is a stretch, but you get the point.

                          [For me and my friends - G n R, Metallica, Megadeth and similar bands were huge, and I listened to a lot less hair metal and lot more heavier bands as the 80s wore an and the 90s started.

                              So let me get this straight, Doc McGhee the king of hair band management says it was Nirvana that killed off the hair bands, but we should take your opinion over his (and over just about every hair metal guy interviewed).

                              Nirvana had nothing to do with it? Man, that is without a doubt the most hilarious thing I ever read.

                              And, where in hell you get this idea that people weren't running to Nirvana rather they were running away from hair bands. By saying people were running away from hair bands you are implying that EVERYONE was into hair bands. That's kind of wrong, don't you think? People flocked to Nirvana because at that time the popular music scene was hair bands and real bad hip hop. Hard core rock fans were waiting for something to grab on to. Nirvana and Seattle came along and gave music starved fans some real, gritty rock and roll. WE RAN TO NIRVANA! Simple as that. We wanted a piece of them before they disappeared or became another commercial commodity.

                              Dude, read some interviews with hair band guys. To a man they all say Nirvana put the knife in hair bands. I have no idea where you are getting your ideas.
