While the 1980s Sunset Strip hair metal was mostly about sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, the unfortunate fact is that if you combine enough of those things for a long enough time, someone’s feelings are going to get hurt. Eventually, some of hair metal’s best and partiest felt the sad sting of heartbreak too. Compiled here are some of the saddest hair metal ballads about lost love, lost life and bad decisions to help you through that bummer that you’re in.
