Not one. Not one single one. One of the worst moments in rock history.

Winger was alright. I used to like Headed For A Heartbreak, Madalaine, and Down Incognito a lot.

Agreed.

But what the hey, I'll toss a vote in for Twisted Sister.

Again, just wanted to make this clear. I want to know the Best 80s (A couple of hits) Hair Band (the ones known more for their hair than music) in the poll up above.

In the thread, I want to know your Favorite Hair Band overall.

That's the reason Poison, Mötley Crüe, Twisted Sister, etc... were not in poll. They're also known for the great 80s music they had.

Poison, known for their great music?!!! They were the epitome of everything wrong with the supposed "Big Hair Era." Concurrently, you should also consider removing Kix from that list as they truly were a band of substance (not fluff).

my vote would go to Dokken.
It's unfortunate that they focused so much attention on their looks. They were one of the few bands of the era that had quite a bit of talent.

Def Leppard
Ratt

These were good bands that were caught in the hair band era.

Out of the list Id vote Winger.

I think they were both considered legitimate bands with substance over style, although there's no doubt they both had style.

I'm glad to see several favorable mentions for Dokken. (See my username!)

They were (and still are) much too good to be labeled a "hair band", however.
