Top 10 Reasons why Glam Metal is the Greatest Music Genre of All Time

Glam Metal is the best music genre of all time, these reasons will tell you why.

The Top Ten

1 It's Fun

A lot more fun to put on nothing But a Good Time by Poison at a party than a shoddy tune by Ke$ha, Flo Rida, Pitbull and other artists like that, they'all terrible. - MetalWorldOrder

2 Awesome Solos

Preach. - RiverVibeZ

Every Glam metal solo is awesome and epic, much better than breakdowns in Metalcore and Deathcore and bass drops in dubstep or whatever, to me it sounds like a bunch o gibberish that any dumbass off the street could make just by pressing loads of buttons on a keyboard what the hell, I could do that. - MetalWorldOrder

Much better solos than in Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal or any other Metal subgenre. - Userguy44

3 It Helped Boom Metal's Popularity in the 1980s

It also helped get many people into metal. Even those who didn't like it before. - RiverVibeZ

Hate on glam metal all you want, but it helped many other metal bands achieve recognition. - yungstirjoey666

Glam Metal was many people's introduction into actual good metal bands, unlike nowadays, everyone is introduced to "metal" from Scene Kid screamo crap, and It's funny that crap on Glam Metal, the reason it's so funny is its proving how stupid they really are, they're making fun of a genre that is superior in every single way to their screamo crap, Poison will always be a better band than Bring Me The Horizon, HA more like Bring Me Better Music Than this Trite. I heard they turned into mainstream pop with their newest album, what a bunch of posers they are.

It Also did help metal more than Grunge ever did, in fact grunge tried to destroy the metal, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, They failed, as they were thrown to the ground. - MetalWorldOrder

4 It's Catchy

The songs are really catchy, I can instantly recognize each tune from each other, a lot better than what we have now, I can't even tell the difference between Trap songs today, they all sound the same. - MetalWorldOrder

5 Great Fashion

The fashion of Glam Metal is awesome, the musicians are so badass that they don't even need to look like men to do so. - MetalWorldOrder

YES! Dressing up as the opposite gender is so hot am I right? - DarkBoi-X

6 Great Vocalists

Sebastian Bach, Blackie Lawless, and Joe Elliot are all very talented and great singers. - RiverVibeZ

Every single Glam band I've ever heard has a great vocalist with tons of power, anyone who hates vocalists with power in their voice. definitely better than any pop vocalist that's for sure. The best vocalist from this genre is Bret Micheals from Poison. - MetalWorldOrder

7 Great Love Ballads

Nothing better than a awesome badass metal band making a great love ballad, these are perfect songs for weddings. - MetalWorldOrder

Whitesnake's song Is This Love is one of the greatest love songs ever. - PhoenixAura81

8 It's from the 1980s

Perhaps the 80s were the best decade for pop music but I think the 70s were maybe better for music in general.

The 1980s was the best decade for music,I find it laughable when someone says I'm a "Born in the Wrong Generation" kid, because it is a well known FACT that the 1980s was the best decade for music. It was back when Pop music actually was good. - MetalWorldOrder

9 Great Guitarists

Glam metal has some of the best guitar solos in my opinion. - RiverVibeZ

It is a fact that Glam Metal has some awesome guitarists, I can't name you a single bad one, they all make pretty cool and memorable guitar riffs. - MetalWorldOrder

10 The Best Song of All Time is a Glam Metal Song

That song my friends is "Death To All But Metal" by Steel Panther, everything about that song really hits me emotionally, it's such a beautiful work of art. - MetalWorldOrder

The Contenders

11 It's Not Cheesy

Glam metal can be cheesy at times, but power metal is far more cheesy. In fact, I like the cheesiness. - yungstirjoey666

Yup, nothing about this genre is cheesy at all, anyone who tells you otherwise needs a hearing aid because you would have to be deaf to say something that stupid. - MetalWorldOrder

This statement is factually wrong. Glam metal is very cheesy not that this is necessary a bad thing but it is.
