Almost posted that too, though to me "hair band" is more like a catch-all term for pop-metal - Poison, Winger, Warrant and that ilk.

Pretty sure they started out in the hair band movement. They just turned out to make way better songs.

2nd from left looks a bit like Patterson Hood. Would be hilarious if Drive By Truckers started out as hair band.
