    Skid Row and Queensryche. But I'm a big fan of a lot of the old hair/glam metal bands - Stryper, Steelheart, Whitesake, etc. etc. etc.

    White Lion were awesome. Vito should be regarded alongside the best in the genre but is often overlooked. The guy had fantastic technique!

    FATE are excellent, specially the "trilogy": "A matter of attitude", "Cruisin´ for a bruisin´" and "Scratch and sniff". My favourite is the last one mainly due to Mattias Eklund guitar work. Not of this earth :worship:

    After their return (without Mattias who uses to play in Freak Kitchen) I´m not too much in new stuff. It´s ok but nothing special. Live they´re still good.

    I love glam metal. My favourite band is Cinderella, but I also like other bands such as Skid Row, White Lion, Tigertailz, Pretty boy floyd, Danger Danger, Lita Ford, Poison, Ratt...

    What about the new era of glam metal?I'm talking about bands as Crahsdiet, Hardcore Superstar, etc. Somebody could add more examples of new glam metal bands?

    I also forgot to mention Cinderella... They have not held up well over time on disc, but they are still in my top ten as far as live bands I have ever seen. THey were super professional and fun. The same goes for Poison. You would have to pay me to listen to Poison on disc, but I would pay to see them live.

    So cinderella is a great band for that!!!
    My fave ballad by cinderella is easily coming home, that song is so beautiful!
    But all the named bands here have so many good ballads!
    Anybody heard of saints and sinners from canada?

    Cinderella were absolutely monsters live. I am also partial to "Coming Home" as far as their ballads. I have a weakness for singer/songwriter type styff though. What little non rock/metal stuff I listen to is stuff like James Taylor, Neil Young etc. and I am far from ashamed of it. I love acoustic guitar played well with heartfelt vocals over it. That is what "Coming Home" offers.
    I have heard the name Saints and Sinners, but am not familiar with their music. Very little of the glam metal, I can enjoy on disc now. I listen to a little PC69 and White Lion now and then.

    Mmm... The term glam metal doesn´t fit, IMO, with some bands named here (Loudness, PC 69, Cinderella,...) but, well, we could say it´s a "global" definition.

    In terms of glam, I´d like some of the late 80´s bands:

    VAIN: Their first record "No respect" is a monster of album. A masterpiece of the genre.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Bv3VbsKaJI

    ROXX GANG: Not consistent with a full album but some songs are totally addictive

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7DzkHw4_xA

    PRETTY BOY FLOYD: A mess of a band, a Motley Crue wannabes but their debut, "Leather boys with electric toys" is a kind of miracle given the poor skills of their member. Saw them live in Madrid 8 years ago and it was a joke. What a disaster!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xnYstQ0f0Y

    TIGERTAILZ: One of the british answers to LA glam metal. "Berzerk" is funny and catchy. They got 5 minutes of fame and "lives" with that since (with uncountable changes of line up, drama, etc.)
