The greatest genre of music ever! A lot of people have been giving this genre shit saying it's "not metal." Those losers are only judging a book by its cover and not listening to the music itself. Some kick ass guitarists who are heavily underrated for being part of the scene are: C.C DeVille, Vito Bratta, Richie Sambora, Tracii Guns, Joey Allen, Reb Beach, George Lynch, Nuno Bettencourt, Mick Mars, Oz Fox, Ronni Le Tekro, Vinnie Vincent, even Slash! I could go on forever. And there are some awesome vocalists like Sebastian Bach, Michael Matijevic, David Coverdale, Bret Michaels, etc.
On a side note: what the hell does everyone have against Poison? Just because they wore makeup, they are gay? Just because Bret Michaels is an amazing singer, he is effeminate? Just because they were mainstream with hits like "Nothin But a Good Time" (my favorite song), "Every Rose Has Its Thorn", "Talk Dirty to Me", "Unskinny Bop", etc, they are crap sellouts? People should just appreciate the music for the music itself. Value what a guitar legend C.C. DeVille was and still is. Maybe people are just jealous because they have never gotten laid before.
Furthermore, I think people are coming of as huge hypocrites when they say they hate glam metal but think Van Halen Guns N Roses and Def Leppard are metal gods.
Some great Glam Metal Bands: Poison, White Lion, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Winger, Warrant, Bon Jovi, Cinderella, Ratt, Dokken, Extreme Firehouse, Steelheart, Faster Pussycat, W.A.S.P., Van Halen, Scorpions, Def Leppard, Guns N Roses, Quiet Riot, LA Guns, Twisted Sister, Bulletboys, Britny Fox, Europe, Whitesnake, TNT, Vinnie Vincent Invasion, Danger Danger, Enuff Z'Nuff, Great White, Trixter, Roxx Gang, Slaughter, Pretty Boy Floyd, Kix, Tesla, Stryper, Vixen, and Autograph. Kiss, Aerosmith, and Alice Cooper are NOT glam metal.
