Twisted Sister are cool.
Trash-era Alice Cooper blows goats, that part of his career really sucks.
I saw The Dogs D'Amour open for Alice in 2002, they sucked.
I also saw The Renegade Playboys open for Dragonforce last year, they sucked and looked like they were trying really hard to be cool.

Glam, on the most part is poo.
The more it tries to be inventive, the more it goes back on itself.
Hanoi Rocks being at least a decent Glam Rock band, and some others, Motley Crue, for example, being an absolute abysmal piece of poo.

Anyone who hasn't sung along with a certain Warrant song hasn't really lived.

Go away. :smash: Didn't you read what the threadstarter said? NO flaming. I'm surprised that it's coming from someone who's a mod too.

I'll admit that there was alot of crap around in this era, but the highlights for me were, Motley Crue (most notably the albums Shout At The Devil, Dr. Feelgood and their self titled album), Van Halen (most of their material is excellent. Yes including Hagar era), Skid Row, Warrant, Hanoi Rocks and Posion (to some extent).

You've missed out most of the orignal glam rock bands, you;v emainly only included the 80's glam rock movement..People like Queen, T-Rex, David Bowie (During the Ziggy Stardust period) were all very influentail glam rock bands during the 70's..I love Alice Cooper perosnally, one of my favorite artists of all time. Queen of course are amazing!! Mott The Hoople were also great at one point, a very underrated band...Mud, Iggy Pop, Suade are also decent bands but not my favorites!

Probably, I made a thread about them and the glitterati awhile back, and nobody seemed to care. I bought a promo version of their album, I don't think the album proper had even been released. It's a rather good album, Sex is my favourite song this year. Check out the Glitterati too, their album is due soon.

I saw the Glitterati live a while ago. I thought they were pretty good as an opening act, but no one else seemed to think so.

Is it safe to define glam rock as rock in which the musicians dress in flaming clothes? It seems that people are lumping Motley Crue with The New York Dolls, two bands who have substantially different sounds. What is glam rock exactly?

Opening for who? I bought their first single, but I've read that the album is a bit weak on the songwriting front. I hope that's not the case, it's not based on what I've heard.

Has anyone heard of Steelheart. They were a late 80's early 90's glam band that had at least one good cd which was produced by Bruce Dickinson. Their singer is great and he sang some of the tunes for Steel Dragon in rockstar. They had a ballad which is almost a ballad of all ballads called She's gone. I recommend you check them out.

Does anyone have any Loud N Nasty songs? They're not on Limewire or BT and I desperately need a few to fill out tomorrow night's playlist (I'll post it here in an hour or so)

My moms favorite band is def leppard so i heard a lot of them when i was young. In fact my parents when i was a baby, they would listen to music as i was going to sleep, and they would have the volume like all the way up, and my room was right next to the wall that the stereo was behind. Now noises don't bug me when i am trying to go to sleep because i am so used to it.

Great idea! Glam gets alot of bashing in these forums and I think if more people were educated on the genre, then the may find they like some of it. Definitely include a bit of Motley Crue in there and possible some Van Halen. They were quite glam when they were with Roth.

http://www.hanoirocks.info/aht/

Its a good enough album, more Dogs D'amour than Hanoi I feel. But the thing which made their last 'new' album (Twelve Shots on the Rocks, 2003) amazing was it could easily have been recorded in 1984. This one sounds pretty modern.

But yeah, is it just me or is it reminisent (sp) of More Unchartered Heights of Disgrace by the Dogs?

I went to the Crue gig at the NEC. It was awesome, totally worth coming up from London for.

I don't know much about the Wembley Pavillion. Its basically all the seats from the arena...in the carpark. I remember back inside the area it was all tiered, but I have no idea what it'll be like. You can usually get decent enough views from flat areas though, if in doubt wear high-heeled cowboy boots and stand on your chair.

Skid Row is really under rated. When ever anyone thinks of glam rock it always goes straight to Motley Crue. Dont get me wrong, I love Motley Crue it's just Skid Row kicks much more ***. All of their stuff seems to be alot heavier. Plus they've got kick *** guitar in every song.

Glam metal gives a metal a bad name and bands like Guns and Roses, Def Lepard and Dokken should not be called metal

spaceacefrehley
06-21-2005, 11:31 PM
Im wondering why KISS hasn't been mentioned much. They are pretty much glam rock, and being this is the glam rock thread, im still wondering why the most influential rock band of all time hasn't been brought up much. Ya there new line up is filled with a bunch of ace and peter wannabes, but they own. They have such a bombastic show, but it couldn't even be as successful without good songs to back it up.

Doesn't matter though, cause people can like who they want. As many people who love and are obssessed with KISS, despise KISS too.

But listen to Heaven's on Fire intro, and tell me Paul Stanley's voice isn't amazing.

I don't really call GNR metal, but as for glam in general, you crossed the line. I am curious to know which bands that came before glam/hair (with the exception of Sabbath) that you would call metal.

Yeah good point. Some Metal, which you (Lets Kill God) may be a fan of, evolved from Glam, you shouldn't bash it without taking that into consideration.

I have to agree with you there. Some of their music is quite dark in places, more straight up metal as you said. However, songs like 'She Goes Down' are hair metal all the way.

I love hair metal! It rocks. I'm always blasting some hair metal as I'm cruising down the street on a Friday night. :cool:

Was the Bon Jovi reference intentional, or just an unfortunate irony?

I'm a big glam rock fan.
KISS, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Poison, Bon Jovi etc etc. It's all good. I also love heavier stuff like Metallica and Pantera but I have a soft spot for the 70s and 80s glam stuff too.

Hey, it's all good !

Im wondering why KISS hasn't been mentioned much. They are pretty much glam rock, and being this is the glam rock thread, im still wondering why the most influential rock band of all time hasn't been brought up much. Ya there new line up is filled with a bunch of ace and peter wannabes, but they own. They have such a bombastic show, but it couldn't even be as successful without good songs to back it up.

Doesn't matter though, cause people can like who they want. As many people who love and are obssessed with KISS, despise KISS too.

But listen to Heaven's on Fire intro, and tell me Paul Stanley's voice isn't amazing.

kiss roks, i saw them on the rock the nation tour

holycrap thanks man, I thought I'd lost this thread to the depths of R&M forever :)

I finally downloaded Decline of Western Civilization Part II the other day. I need to track down some Seduce, London and Wet Cherri. Sleaze Roxx and Metal Sludge are of only vague use :(

However it has reaffirmed my love of Faster Pussycat, which can only be a good thing. Its also the most inspiring film I've seen, the complete opposite to how Spheeris wanted it to look and also the opposite to how its generally perceived.

Bring on the stadiums, coke, groupies and lawsuits :)

Tough one, but i'd say Skid Row win by a small margin.

Wild Side wins easily!

i LOVE the crue....but why does motley crue get SOOO much cred among the glam people? it almost seems like what metallica has goin on....lol....(ps i do like metallica)

i think bands like dokken or whitesnake were WAAAAAY more talented and inventive...

but im not trying to bash motley crue I love wild side, SOS and of course 'GLITTER' (crank the bass and its a beautiful song) ......

Pretty Boy Floyd.

Michael Monroe does the same thing, but in all fairness Hanoi were more Glam Rock than Hair Metal, they just had a pretty 80s look to them.

Motley get credit because they were awesome for what they did. As much as I love Lynch (and Dokken in general, think what they could have been like with a decent singer), the Crue epitomised S+D+R&R way, way more than Dokken ever did. They never set out to be the most talented band on the Strip (neither did Poison or Autograph for that matter), but they were great for who they were.

I discovered Pretty Boy Floyd the other day, got Size Really Does Matter, which was ok. But yesterday I got Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz. Oh dear god. Such insane amounts of awesome.

The Crue kicked some serious ***, but most fans after 1989 became fans because "The Dirt". That book was awesome, though. They were credited for hair metal because of all the hair metal bands, Motley Crue was the most notorius, wild and unpredictable.

Long live Mick Mars!

Motely Crue, Twisted Sister, poison, Kiss, DEf leppard, they are all awesome. I think the period of hair/glam metal was awesome.
Would AeroSmith be hair/glam metal?
oh, and another hair and glam metal, Whitesnake, and Ufo. They were the best there was at that time.
