Music poll sort of

Post by Helena115 » Tue Apr 19, 2011 2:54 pm

So, who in here likes sleaze/glam/"hair" metal and lives in the US?

(good grief, I went looking for a metal-sign smiley, and there are like 800 new smiles, and no metal sign? Or headbanging?? Get with the program people :cyclops: )

I like many different kinds of metal including those. Not so much on the more pop side of glam though.
:headbang:

Click "more smiles" and go to page 5. I can add it to the list that displays when I get around to it though.

Well now, don't confuse hair metal with "euro" metal (Yngwie, Helloween, Manowar, Iced Earth, Hammerfall...). :geek:

I'm talking about Motley Crue, Faster Pussycat, Sweet FA, GnR, Hardcore Superstar... :cool:

Then put me down for a "YES".

Can we throw the Ramones in there?
I just discovered them.

Kids!! You just discovered the Ramones? Now look up The Velvet Underground, MC5, New York Dolls, the Stooges and the Pretty Things.

I never became interested in the later versions of metal. But the music I listened too was mostly Glam Rock, traditional heavy metal and proto punk. Of course we didn't call it that then. There really wasn't any name for it then.

yeah, I've heard of them of course, but never appreciated them. I listen to a wide variety of stuff played on the radio :cheese:
While I've always thought of myself as a music lover, compared to many guys, I'm an amatuer.

The Ramones are punk rock. A completely different style of music. One I also like quite a lot too.

Rammstein is interesting.
Great way to promote new album with those dildos.

They're all satanists...
I apologize to everyone I've enraged. I'll try to correct myself.
