an offshoot of 80s glam metal/butt rock that is more romance novel oriented than the cartoonish sleaze of bands like poison and motley crue. the biggest fabio rock band is whitesnake. lead singer david coverdale's "i really love you and need your tender lovin" lyrical style and dress shirt/long styled hairdo symbolize the fabio rock aesthetic. the name "fabio rock" comes from romance novel cover model fabio. some other fabio rock bands are steelheart,lion,and house of lords. fabio rock really doesnt exist anymore in a commercial sense,but its still a favorite among classic rock and construction rock fans.
i cant stand whitesnake and their stupid "ooh i love you baby"- all that fabio rock shit sucks!!
