Poison Still Rocks  
Despite what anyone says, I still think Poison is awesome. They might be on the 80s pop side of rock, and looking back seem a bit cheesy, but their music is fun.
Current Mood: sadsad
Current Music: I Won't Forget You - Poison

Agreed. I especially enjoy, "Nothin' But a Good Time." :D

I was into rock at the time, but not hair metal--more heavy rock plus I was influenced by to what was on MTV at the time--and I was also into U2, The Police, REM, and bands like that.

I had nothing against Poison, but didn't really know any of their music, even though I knew the band name. Then I saw some televised fan concert of Poison a year or two ago. They did an acoustic version of Every Rose Has Its Thorn (which I did not really remember, so it was like a new song to me), and I loved it. I ended up watching the whole concert, because it was good. It was a small(ish), intimate show for fans who had all won radio contests to be there.

They also seemed like a band of characters, because as I watched, I realized I knew three of the band members from other stuff--just didn't know which band they were from.

They seem like fun guys, talented musicians and songwriters, and good music is good music. If it's good, it's good.

I was a hair metal girl. Mind you, most of the 80s was all about pop for me. I was too young to listen to harder stuff. But the late 80s and early 90s was where I sort of came into my personal tastes in music and that was rock.

I listened to Guns'N'Roses, White Snake, Skidrow, Warrant, Metallica, Poison, Scorpions, Bon Jovi, and wow I am blanking on many of them now.

But I also listened to REM and U2 and other bands.

I just love music :)

hehe Yeah, I liked rock and heavy metal, but I admit that at the time? I was snobby about "hair metal." (I was young & stupid--just old enough to be stupid about something because of the somewhat cheesy presentation. *g*)

So I liked Bon Jovi (didn't consider them hair metal) and Guns'n'Roses and the Scorpions, but I mostly ignored the other bands. Oh, I liked Quiet Riot--bands like that. heh I also liked bands from the 70s who were still making music in the 80s.

I love music, too. The 90s is a lost decade for me, so I'm still discovering a lot of music that is new to me from that decade. :-)

Hahaha, I love the Poison of yore.

Bret Michaels now, though, I could take or leave. Preferably leave.
