15 Completely Ridiculous Looking Glam Metal Bands

Glam metal was a funny old phase in the annals of fashion. Boys looking as much like girls as they could whilst singing about how manly they were. Odd.

I’d like to start this piece with a disclaimer: I know a lot of people have loved glam rock in the past, and many still do. I am poking fun at them because they looked ridiculous, but I’m not saying they are/were the most ridiculous examples of fashion ever.

I just had to get that out of the way up front, I’ve experienced the rough edge of a glamster’s tongue before and I didn’t like it. There’s nothing wrong with laughing at people who look like idiots. As long as you can take a poke in the ribs yourself, crack on. And these dudes look hilarious so that’s the end of it.

Glam initially cropped up in the late 70s and early 80s. It followed the likes of Sabbath and lost its following at the dawn of Nirvana and their clan. So it was a short-lived portion of ultra-snazzy, über-preened posturing between two eras of unwashed, unkempt noise.

I hope you’re not expecting too much intellectual critique here? I’m just up for laughing at them if that’s OK? And where better to start the mirth…

These divs have toned it down a bit in recent years. They’re still divs though:
