"In recent years, certain bands associated with punk rock have scored hits with tracks that seem to evoke the anthemic hair-metal sound, such as the Offspring's Gone Away (1997) and AFI's Girl's Not Grey (2003). It is hard to say whether these tracks are intended as sincere homage or as an ironic reference. The Darkness has attempted to revive the hair metal style."
I searched up hair metal in google and this was the first link that came up. I thought some people might like it here.
