The other bad thing about the alt rock explosion? There were some good (few, but still) glam metal bands that got thrown out with the bad ones. For every awful band like Slaughter, Trixter and Warrant [edited to add, RIP, Jani Lane] there were really great bands like Tesla, Faster Pussycat and L.A. Guns.

And at least these guys had penises, which is something that is still up for debate with Pearl Jam and Nirvana.
