Top 5 Glam Metal/Rock Albums

Big hair, spandex, guyliner, and hooks. The top 5 glam metal/rock albums out there.
5Judas Priest
Turbo


You may ask, what the fuck is this doing here. And I will just say, I get it. Judas Priest are heavy metal gods not glam metal gods, but for whatever small amount of piss or salt it may be worth, they made a solid glam metal album. That counts for something. Also, hasn't Rob Halford, the metal god Himself, always been glam oriented?

God bless Johnny Thunders, man. No New York Dolls would mean no glam rock/metal. Depending on your opinion of the genre you may be glad at that, but...
3W.A.S.P.
The Last Command


Blackie Lawless is a maniac. Chris Holmes, bless his soul, is famous for drinking vodka in a pool on camera. Their lyricism is so over the top it's ludicrous. But this album has "Wild Child" on it and that is easily one of the best songs to come out of the 80's LA Metal scene. W.A.S.P., on this album especially, found the right mixture of commercial accessibility and in your face rock swagger, and that's a formula as hard to get as the Krabby Patty secret formula.
2The Stooges
Raw Power


This album is a glorious sonic mess. It sounds like it was recorded on a spoon. The album cover has a shirtless man woman with makeup on grinding a microphone stand. It's not all that musically proficient. But goodness is it a good album. Has balls in all the right places, and a whole lot of spunk.
1Motley Crue
Shout at the Devil


I mean. Easily. This album is the consummate glam metal record. Huge drum sound? Check. Over the top imagery? Check. A nice little touch of faux Satanism? Double check. Shout at the Devil was released in 1983, preceding the glam boom by just a hair. I mean, there was a lot of hair involved, but you get it. The songs are heavy, raw, and punchy, but still commercial and catchy. That's the ideal formula for glam metal if you ask me.
