Why? I wasn't slamming glam bands, just stating obvious things.
You have some of the most retarded music opinions I've ever witnessed in my life.
Have you even listened to Van Halen? Do you even have any concept of how many badass, catchy riffs they wrote? Of how much fucking charisma David Lee Roth had? Of how ridiculously successful and influential the band has been? Or do you just have some silly grudge against hard rock?
Those are Hard Rock bands, not "glam". And Motley hands down.
Which one made least albums ?
no, they are glam bands. Thanks for failing.
My kind of place.
Winger, Def Leppard and Ratt. That order. But Europe and Winger joint 1st if they were there.
Whatever bands I don't like.
@ Van Halen fans:
Update: np Power Metal by Pantera... best glam band ever.
WASP is pretty debatable. They're always going to go down in history as a hair band, even though the first couple of albums are heavier than their rivals and Blackie Lawless pretty much abandoned glam altogether with The Headless Children and The Crimson Idol (both great albums, BTW)
Also, they were uglier fuckers than your usual Kip Wingers and Mark Slaughters.
Def Leppard is the only band on the list that I like. And I only like them a little.
NO, they are HARD ROCK bands, glam is David Bowie for example, some HARD ROCK bands take some visual things but that's all.
Actually, I really like Van Halen - though I prefer the Sammy Hagar stuff.
I know, heretical isn't it ?
For me best glam bands on the list are Ratt, Cinderella, Poison. I mis Europe and Hanoi Rocks.
Now I'm no expert, having never actually heard the record, but I was under the impression that the first Europe album wasn't glam/butt metal at all, but sorta proto-power metal. They then went glam/butt from there. That's what Martin Popoff tells me.
I'm only kidding about the butt metal tag. I just think it's funny. Regardless, I have honestly heard that term tossed around as synonymous with glam/hair metal.
Def Leppard weren't glam to begin with.
Van Halen were never glam (go listen to the debut and have your ass kicked), just poppy on 1984. However, if you're making the case that pop metal = glam metal, I suppose I could see that.
The only bands I really like from that list are the Crue, Van Halen, and Twisted Sister. Bands like Winger, Bon Jovi and Poison were abominations, and I don't understand how anybody can take that shit seriously.
