The 1980's gave us "candy-rock," and "hair-metal" with bands like Cinderella, Poison, Motley Crue, Kix, and yes, even Bon Jovi. It seemed like the more hair and ripped jeans, the better the band.
I've always wondered what the true heavy metal bands of that era thought about the candy-rockers - you know the bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Black Sabbath. Was this the same way that bands like U2, the Stones, and Zeppelin felt of the candy-pop artists?
