Billie Joe is a really good guitarist, Green Day is like the best shred band around.

the only glam band that i like is van halen. motley crue and poison each have a few songs that are ok but not many. and some people consider gun n roses glam. based on their image i would agree but i dont really consider them a glam band based on the music

WASP ... I very much dislike glam "metal" like poison and such, its pop.

and its not metal, but try the New York Dolls, and I like some T Rex. From back when glam was good.

I believe that says glam ROCK and the TS asked about glam METAL... Not the Same.

EDIT: Just as so it's not spam, Motley Crue and some Early Bon Jovi are easy to get in to.

fair enough.
i was being sarcastic in the original post anyway, and once i found i had a slightly valid argument, i just went with it.

Skid Row, Dokken, Winger, and T. Rex are all excellent bands that are or at least flirt with being glam. Skid Row was really only glam for the first album, but Slave to the Grind is amazing. Dokken has George Lynch, Winger has an undeserved bad reputation but the music (regardless of your taste in lyrics) is great and they're all amazingly talented musicians. T. Rex just flat-out rocks.
EDIT: Not *technically* glam (I think), but get the Operation: Mindcrime album by Queensryche. Make sure it's the first one, though.
NOR'EDIT: ^AHAHAHAHA I'd forgotten that one. Roth's cool though, he was able to make fun of the 80's even while he was living it 110%.
And don't forget Extreme!

Cool, somebody recognized T Rex finally.

But really? Out of all the processed crap that was 80s glam metal... no body sees the diamond in the shit that is WASP?

no such thing as good glam. There were bands that got lumped in with glam but had a more rock edge to them and there are only two of those Skid Row and Tesla

The words "good" and "glam metal" don't belong in a sentence unless they come after "there is no such thing as." Only glam metal song that doesn't give me the urge to go postal is Cum On Feel The Noise by Quiet Riot.

It's so hilarious to hear Phil sing like that. I love it.

that is the most annoying song ever. There was good glam metal, very little, but some, listen to stuff that isnt played on the radio every day.


and to early pantera guy, it wasnt phil singing, they had someone else in the beginning. he can hit the notes though, listen to him squeal at the end of cemetary gates even, i wish he would have done his high notes more.

Oh man, what kind of glam metal, pop glam or real glam metal?

Difference: Pop metal is more upbeat, more fun to listen to, while glam metal is just metal with makeup.

Best Glam Metal Band: Motley Crue
Good Glam Metal Band: Quiet Riot

Best Pop Metal Band: Guns n Roses
Good Pop Metal Band: Cinderella

Not Glam: Bon Jovi, GNR, those are hair metal bands. Big difference. They don't wear makeup.

Glam = Makeup. Hair = No makeup.
Hey look, a stoner/doom album.

GENERATION 27: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.
