Hard Rock/Heavy Metal music made during the metal explosion in the eighties. Most of it is actually pretty good if you can get over the crazy hair, makeup, and spandex.

See Hair Metal.
Iron Maiden, Mötley Crüe, Kiss, Metallica, AC/DC.

It may be cheesy, but at least it's not nu-metal.

Contrary to what the entry above says, Motley Crue and KISS are NOT metal. Motley Crue is hair metal, aka the nu metal before nu metal and KISS is just crappy soft-rock.

Iron Maiden along with Judas Priest, Megadeth, Anthrax, Overkill, Helloween, Metallica, etc are REAL Heavy Metal from the 80's, 80's Metal
