Top Glam Metal Bands! - P. 1

Published in ROCKERIANS!

A lot of people get mixed by defining genres, such as Glam Metal. Well, when the expression comes to mind what you think is long hair, tight jeans and full makeup on boys band. Frankly, yes, it’s also called Hair Metal, 80s Metal, Pop Metal or even some call it Sleaze! As an appearance from the late 70s till the late 80s, there were many bands that look like that, however, it wasn’t necessary to be a glam band. The early 80s till the mid 90s was considered as the peak of glam metal era, so it was very normal to find a band with full makeup on albums with love themes (giving you the glam image) and next album they would have a different appearance. So, what made that different one way or another, is their music, lyrical themes and stage performance too. In some eras, GNR and KISS would be called as glam rock/metal groups, but by time the bands have changed as well as the audience, so my list will also exclude such bands! Anyhow, let’s find out the best and most influential glam rock/metal bands ever!
