You may not like them but to label them hair metal is just down right silly.

Sure they had an Eddie Van Halen type guitarist and donned the make up for their first album, but that's were the connection with that era and metal ends. 19 years on and 10 albums of great Cheap Trick, Elvis Costello, Beatles, Raspberries Power Pop later, Enuff Z'Nuff have provided some of the most critically acclaimed power pop records of the last 15 years or so.

Apparently you missed the title of the thread and what they've been labeled as for years, so quit looking up crap and list 10.


Ignorant people label them Hair Metal. I didn't look up crap, i know since i own every album they have put out (12).

I used my ears to discern this fact of the style of music they play, you used your scant memory of seeing the "New Thing" video on Headbangers Ball or reading about them in some Metal mag back in the day to ignorantly label them. cool

I'll offer a list soon.

That's fine, i wouldn't have had an issue if you listed them in the 10 worst bands of all time. But when you label them Hair Metal or even Sleaze (Come on really? Do you disagree with me labelling them a Power Pop band?) well i had to speak up. It's just one of my pet peeves i guess. Cool

Your hilarious Sahb, but throw your 2 cents into the argument that is if your own Chimp isn't weighing you down. I know your thoughts since we discussed this topic not that long ago.

I only have Strength to quote the chimp, but he's an Animal With Human Intelligence so I respect his opinion. Based on the two albums, he thinks that they do tend toward power pop, but like any band it depends on the song. A song like Master of Pain would fit nicely into my sleaze play list; and their image at that point was glammy (if not sleazy) as well. So it depends on the song or album. How's that for a cop out? You gotta admit that they had some pretty hard edged songs here and there, far removed from Smithereens or Shoes territory. But they are filed in my power pop section, yeah.

i agree with Rattpoison on this one, & not just because of his Traci lords avatar. Enuff Z'nuff was a pop band.

i hear absolutely no sleaze or metal in their music. i still think they stink though.

No doubt about some songs (although a minority in their whole catalogue of 12 albums) were fairly hard rock.

But you would treat them as like early Cheap Trick who had those big hard rockers, some would say Enuff Z'Nuff were wholly derivative of late 70's Cheap Trick.

But basically their whole discography over the last 20 years has been very Beatlesque and unabashedly retro in their reverence to 70's Power Pop groups like Raspberries, Big Star, Badfinger, Blue Ash etc.

Their real peers at the time were groups like Redd Kross, Jellyfish etc. Groups that painted their bombastic pops songs in bright primary colours and had the odd hard rock guitar here and there.

I don't think of them as a Cheap Trick clone, but I would say they are like Cheap Trick in that they do mix a fair amount of legitimate hard rockers in with their poppy stuff. Both bands were capable of crossing over into heavy territory quite often. As far as I know bands like Big Star and Badfinger didn't do that very much. Not going by what I've heard from them anyway.

Badfinger and Big Star did, although when they rocked hard it was coming more from a really loud heavy 50's rock n' roll rather than a legitimate attempt at then modern hard rock. Although Badfinger's underrated epic classic Wish You Were Here (1974) has it's fair share of moody dark heavy/hard rock which could be compared favourably with Queen at the time. Another band Enuff Z'Nuff took their cues from, but more in the way of Enuff Z'Nuff's slower moody piano based numbers.

ENUFF Z'NUFF were in no way remotely sleaze....or glam aside from their image...they were psychedelic tinged Beatles-esque power pop....hard rock.

And if this turns into more slamming I'll sit each one of you in a corner....then a ferociou spanking...followed by being sent to bed with no dinner...you all dig!?!?!?

Of all the debates people get into on the boards, the "genre-wars" interest me the least. Sleep

I'll call them a sleeze band because that's what I think they were. If
anyone wants to call them power pop, I'll just disagree and leave it at
that.

Heck, call em a country band if you like.... either way, they were not all that great IMO.

I'm listening to Faster Pu$$ycat's debut as I type this!! Oh the memories this brings back. Many moons ago, my buddy's band, The Outlaw Pandas (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=39758862) covered "Bathroom Wall" with MetalGuy taking on lead vocals. I'm sure it was horrible to the 7 or 8 people in the club that night, but dang, it sure was fun.

Thanks for the trade Spec!! I don't know why I waited so long to replace my long-gone tape.
