240. Poison

The last half of the 1980’s was very kind to Poison. They were one of the top Hair Metal bands selling out arenas world wide and dominating music television. Their music was fun party music mixed with some of the most successful power ballads of the era. Like many bands, drug abuse and infighting hampered their growth, but in the early 90’s “fun” music was not selling records anymore and Poison became synonymous with everything that was wrong with music from the 80’s. One of Poison’s biggest hits was preaching about having nothing but a good time, which was one of Rock and Roll’s original messages. They were not a deep band, but they never tried to be.

next to Motley Crue they were Glam Metal! Maybe not hall worthy but they stayed true and were Huge in the 80s! Not sellouts like Bon Jovi! Bret Michaels Is an Icon and the Most personable Rockstar on and off stage I ever Met Great Guy!

I'd ask if you were kidding, but since ABBA has already been voted in, I'll just take this as one more sign of the apocalypse.

Get off ur high horses. What a great band with rock attitude and the real reason anyone joins a band! To get laid! And Bret Michaels is the biggest star of his generation! That has to account for something1
