Hair Metal

LA Guns

The brainchild of Tracii Guns and Rob Gardner. Guns, because LA Gardners sounds like a professional croquet team.

A history intertwined with Guns N' Roses, these Los Angeles / Sunset Strip based hard rockers burst onto radio and MTV with their 1988 self-titled debut, powered by the dual guitar assault of Tracii Guns and Mick Cripps and the raspy vocal delivery of Phil Lewis. The band's next two albums, 1989’s Cocked & Loaded and 1991’s Hollywood Vampires, both achieved gold sales status behind a string of popular singles including “Sex Action,” “Never Enough,” “Rip and Tear,” “The Ballad of Jayne” and “Kiss My Love Goodbye.”


The Hit: The Ballad of Jayne

Loved this tune growing up. The Ballad of Jayne might be one of the most simple songs ever created in the entire genre.

Plus, the acoustic bass in the video is so harsh.
