If there’s one thing Hollywood taught us, it’s that image is [i]everything[/i]. That lesson was certainly not lost on the hair metal legions dolling up the Sunset Strip with teased coifs, lacquered lips, and an image that fit the video age like spandex. Even bands from Germany and Sweden — light-years removed from the paparazzi’s machine-gun flash — were damn ready for their close-up. “Livin’ On a Prayer” staked Bon Jovi’s claim as New Jersey’s favorite sons courtesy of a blue-collar slab of arena-filling might, its accompanying video not only dropping us in the arena itself, but also escorting us backstage during soundcheck. In “Rock You Like a Hurricane,” the Scorpions mounted rock’s first Panzer attack, their hammer-on-anvil bombardment icy, relentless, and loud — [i]German-metal loud[/i]. And perhaps nothing screamed Hollywood like starring a cross-dressing Milton Berle in your video, as did Ratt in the clip for their breakthrough — the greased-up, platinum-plated powerhouse “Round and Round.” From Warrant and Faster Pussycat’s cheesecake sleaze to Poison and Winger’s high-gloss hooks, welcome to headbanger heaven.
