hmm, motley crue(not crew, look it up, don't correct me about the dots, i know) is indeed 80's, but it's hair metal, a specialised type of metal, akin to heavy metal.
mostly about "highschool" subjects, chicks, cars, stuff like that, very popular back then.
i hear hollywood was full of bands like that(fun fact, did you know slash from GnR/slash's snakepit/VR got his trademark tophat from nikki sixx?).
twisted sister, david lee roth, it's the stuff that got me into music in the first place.
