I need some Dio, stoic knowing I got the comfort of new made friends and this thread when the stupidity of the world pound endlessly hopeless.

It's always nice to hear about someone who enjoys Glam metal whether 80's or all these new 2000's bands who are reviving it

Default Hurricane - Over The Edge (made in 1988), Hurricane - Baby Snakes (Instrumental) and Hurricane - Dance Little Sister

6 Foot 3, are Hairbands and Glam the same thing? I've been trying to understand this and found no help searching the Forum.

I was listening to the song above, also Only Heaven and now their song Over the Edge to help me identify their trademark signature sound.

Hurricane - Over The Edge (made in 1988)

YouTube - Hurricane-Over The Edge

I tried finding a good review on this band but very few though I did locate this one.>>>>>>

Baby Snakes had a comment attached but this was the only video I
could find.

but I like their Dance Little Sister more and wish this was a college board so I could ask questions which would reflect that lifestyle and how this music affect it without risk offending gawd knows who.

Do you have any e-magazines you like to read that specialize in Glam or favor the bands you like. I'm starting to feel better talking about this band.

The album most of these songs are from is ALBUM: TAKE WHAT YOU WANT and spoken highly of in this Album Review written in 2008.

A VERY good review I think.>>>> RevelationZ Magazine >>>> http://www.revelationz.net/index.asp?ID=2512

Excerpt " Hurricane literally was the baby brother of Quiet Riot.

Hurricane guitarist Robert Sarzo and bassist Tony Cavazo are brothers to Quiet Riot guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bass player Rudy Sarzo."

I have always considered glam rock different from hair bands even though big hair is part of glam rock.

I believe glam rock/pop started in Britain in the 1970s and included Gary Glitter, David Bowie, T Rex et al.

Default Down - Bury Me in Smoke, Down - Hail the Leaf and Crowbar - Time Heals Nothing (1995) and Existence Is Punishment

Djuna, I appreciate your quick response and knowledge on this topic. New listeners like me try to take nothing for granted when exploring a new subgenre.

Do you know whether Hair Bands is then a complete separate style of musical sound or can suggest bands that would identify for the new listener a good study of this. I am willing to investigate so your time answering will not be wasted on an insincere student.

I now return to a dark style of music because I always feel better after
playing it and many are like me.

Down - Bury Me in Smoke

YouTube - DOWN - BURY ME IN SMOKE


For my friend Jim, who I can feel smile through wires and hookups. Don't run unless there is a car waiting for you Kindred. This country's crazy laws about Mary is insane. One dude in Tenn got 10 years for a gram... He forgot each state has its own laws.

Down - Hail the Leaf

YouTube - Down - Hail the Leaf


and this next song is for that gay kid who jumped that was a topic "discussed" in class... how do you discuss something like that without thinking about all the other kids who do it and the pain left behind...

See why I take my friendship seriously and don't accept them easily online? Because friends are the family you get to choose and not have forced on you. Maybe I'm going toward the long ponderous posting and need to be quicker, and snarky. Sorry... that ain't me.

Crowbar - Time Heals Nothing (1995)

YouTube - Crowbar ~ Time Heals Nothing

I can't believe Crowbar has gotten back together and had some tours this past Oct in Austin and Houston TX and LA and are newly signed to eOne Music! these guys speak emotional truth that the young want to hear... look at the crowd, are you there or your kids... I am!

Crowbar - Existence Is Punishment

YouTube - Crowbar - Existence Is Punishment

Time to pack up. Peace... and Jim, thanks for giving me the hookup avoiding school firewalls! We should leave our schedule on the remote computer. HA!

Glam rock started out as glitter rock in the 1970s, in England. I remember as a 9 year old going to a friend's house and her older sister had posters everywhere with glitter rock bands. The defining part to me I guess was the outrageous and flamboyant costumes and make up and the androgyny of the men.

There is a crossover between glam rock and hair bands but not all hair bands were considered glam, for example Cinderella, Skid Row, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi. Hair bands were more 1980s and their sound was more American in my opinion. I distinctly remember the change back when I was in my late teens.

Anyway others may disagree, these are just my thoughts.

Here's a couple of my favourite hair bands;


YouTube - Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead Or Alive


YouTube - Skid Row - 18 And Life (Live)

Excerpt " Hurricane literally was the baby brother of Quiet Riot.

Glam is an umbrella category as that's why i state Glam metal as glam can be many different genres as for example New Wave bands i.e. Culture Club or heck maybe even Michael Jackson's ''Thriller'' album and music videos could be labeled Glam (IMHO) and i'd say that David Bowie is one of the founding fathers of that category although i guess you could say The Monkees were technically the first in the ''New Wave'' category that also was hugely popular during the 80's.

I think Glam metal had it's heyday from around the early 80's when Ozzy, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot and RATT first appeared on the metal scene back then however i agree with some other posters that not all 80's bands were Glam metal i.e. Def Leppard, Aldo Nova, Night Ranger and Damn Yankees comes to mind as i'd call them Top 40 metal.

As for e-magazines ... nope i don't read them however i grew up reading Circus and Metal Edge magazines during the late 70's and thru out the 80's as that's how i learned about many of the up and coming underground bands back then and of course the phenomenon known as MTV gave us all the top 40 Glam metal songs and videos that were non-existent before the summer of 1981 when it first debuted on cable tv.

I guessing here but i'll go out on a limb and state that most of the 80's Hair Bands idolised the founding father of that category going back to 1974 when KISS first appeared with their debut album ''KISS''.

The term "Hair band" was created as more of a way of mocking the late 80's Glam bands, with their "big hair" look and sappy power ballads.

It was very sad to learn about bassist Mike Alexander's death in 2009.
