Glam Metal


Notes

Glam Metal (also known as hair metal and pop metal) is a subgenre of hard rock and heavy metal that arose in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the United States, particularly in the Los Angeles Sunset Strip. It was popular throughout the 1980s, combining the flamboyant look of glam rock with the musical style of heavy metal. Glam Metal appealed greatly to music television producers, like MTV, whose establishment coincided with the rise of the genre. Glam Metal artists became known for their lifestyles of debauchery and late-night parties. The genre saw a decrease in popularity due to the rise of the grunge movement, and has been experiencing a small revival.
