  • Guns n Roses were not glam metal, they ended glam metal.
  • And if I wanted to listen to shiat I'd put my ear on the toilet.

    Ok but one or two are actually ok.
  • Is The Darkness glam? Whatever. My answer is The Darkness.

  • Metal is not my wheelhouse at all, but I can't deny that "Round and Round" by Ratt is a fantastic farking song.

    I listened to Use Your Illusions I&II not long ago after a loooooong time and was struck by how well the music has aged. They were a really good rock and roll band.

    And then Axl starts screeching like a cat being stepped on and you're like "Holy Jesus, how was this ever popular?" and you kind of feel sad that the rest of the band's competence gets instantly overshadowed.

    Appetite is one of the best rock alums ever made. They caused everyone to take off their makeup , it wasn't Nirvana. Use Your Illusion 1& 2 had one great album in it with a lot of filler. I actually haven't paid attention to the rest.

  • I have zero Glam Metal albums. That feels like the correct number.

    Aquanet and eyeliner.

    Kinda glammy.
  • D.A.D. - No Fuel Left for the Pilgrims should be on the list. Probably the best front-to-back albums from that genre/era (if you discount Appetite).
    Also, Badlands debut album would probably be 2nd on my list from that era, but the album certainly isn't glam.

    I am not a Gunners fan but I agree Appetite for Destruction was the best mainstream music happening in the late 1980's.

    The whole era sucked in my opinion, but they were the best of a terrible bunch I'll give them that.

    I was so pleased when the 90's gave us so many new sounds which didn't include the overproduced pap which was the late 80's. Nirvana and the grunge scene were a huge (and much simpler) improvement on the million dollar sounds of 80's rock while 90's electronic music was a massive improvement over the synth sounds of 80's pop/glam bands.

    IT'S ALL SUBJECTIVE of course, many will completely disagree with me as is their right but I would genuinely rather stay home and be forced to watch Friends eps than have to go to a Motley Crue or Bon Jovi or Def Leppard or Poison or other 80's phenomenon concert, and I farking hate Friends.
  • Guns n' Roses are glam?  Is that why they toured with Metallica in '92, when Hetfield was lit on fire?  I hear Montreal was bumping' that night.

    Yeah... I had a similar experience when Chinese Democracy finally came out. Axl's vocals are so terrible on that it actually damaged my enjoyment of their other stuff (particularly Use Your Illusion.) It goes way beyond losing Izzy as their best songwriter; Axl's screeching just ruins anything else he was trying to do over 13 years with a revolving door of some of the most talented hard rock musicians around.

    While we're at it on this thread, Vince Neil is one of the worst vocalists that's ever walked the earth. He's even worse than Axl. All he's got going, ever, is that super-thin scratchy/screechy tone. (Axl at least had great lower vocals when he wasn't trying to be Steven Tyler, or whatever.) When they were in a half-punk bash-it-out attitude on Too Fast for Love and Shout at the Devil, it didn't matter and those albums are good. But everything afterward... yikes.
  • Also, here's Rob Halford rolling through pretty much every vocal trick Axl ever had, all in one song from back in 1977:
