any other band right now. – I feel like there were
a lot of singers in the ’80s that had long hair

I Go Again” by Whitesnake. – Whitesnake, argh. – Oh shoot! – Yeah, I’ve never heard of Whitesnake. – (Finebros) Whitesnake is part
of a popular genre in the ’80s called “glam metal” or “hair metal.” And this is why.
