Where did 80's hair metal originate from

Or should I say who started it? Which band?

Report as

The 80s hair metal came from glam rock. This inspired the over the top looks hair bands, which they adopted including makeup and big hair. It helped hard rock bands like Aerosmith and Slade shape their musical sound too. Read more on http://heavymetal.about.com/od/heavymetal101/p/hairmetal.htm.

Look like Glam Rock from the 70s. Music like punk music and pop and metal too. I think it started as a movement with lots of bands, like any other type of music, back in the early 80s.

I think it was due to drug and alcohol abuse and poor taste.
