Hairbands embrace Rogaine

A Listmania! list by Big Hair Addict (Altoona, PA USA)
The list author says: "With the resurgence in classic rock/hairbands/melodic rock the bands of the 80's are sprouting up again like follicles on a bald head after using Rogaine. Actually, most of these guys never went away, they were just treated like bastard red-headed step children for the last 20 years. Many are now coming out with albums that try to recapture the glory days of the 80's era in an effort to please fans - with great results. Just look at the ratings. What's old is new again so enjoy.

Murder By Pride
1.  Murder By Pride by Stryper
The list author says:
  "Fantastic return to the sound that made them one of the better metal bands of their time. And IMHO the best new album by an 80's metal act. Big guitars, big vocals, and big ballads. 80's/90's Stryper fans will love it."
