Principally from the 80's.

Any one of a loose class of rock and roll bands sharing any number of similarities, but typified by long, elaborately messy, overblown hairstyles.

The implication that the hair is perhaps the most substantive thing about such a band or thier music.
See, for example: Motley Crue, Guns -n- Roses, Warrant, Stryper, etc., and to a lesser degree, Def Leppard, Bon Jovie, and so on.

Hard rock music groups, whose popularity crested in the late 80's, and whose defining look was overwhelmingly big, long, or bushy hair. Their music is sometimes referred to as monster rock. Coincides with White Trash, Monster Truck Rallys, Nascar, Midwest, Rural.

Generalized description of any of the 80's rock bands recognized for teased hair, large followings, high profile lifestyles, etc.
'Quiet Riot'? Oh my god, I can't believe you consider that a hair band.
