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.

The last of great music, ever. It's actually hair metal. The hardest rock around. The best bands in the world. These bands actually had talent and the tunes kick so much ass. After hair bands, there was a shitty trend called "grunge" which totally blows, along with all other music.
The best music is hair bands!
