Glam Rock 1/3

Rock >> Glam Rock

Glam rock is a style of music that became popular in the UK in the 1970s. It is characterized by the use of elaborate costumes, flashy makeup and androgynous outfits. The music itself is mostly rock-oriented and is carried by guitars, drums and bass.

Glam rock grew out of the proto-punk movement and the glam art scene of the early 1970s. Artists such as David Bowie, T. Rex and Sweet were the pioneers of glam rock, shaping the style with their flamboyant performances and music that was inspired by pop culture.

The glam rock style was embraced primarily by teenagers and young adults who wanted to set themselves apart from traditional rock music. Glam rock artists' stage performances were often colorful and elaborate, and they used the stage to express their personalities and creativity.

The glam rock style also had a strong political dimension. Artists such as Gary Glitter and Slade used their music and stage performances to rebel against society's established norms and values and to advocate individual freedom and self-determination.

Although the glam rock style lost popularity in the 1980s, it left a lasting impact on rock music. Artists like Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson have incorporated elements of glam rock into their music, contributing to its persistence. Today, the glam rock style is still an important inspiration for many musicians and fans of rock music.

23. Booster 02:38

Rock / Pop. This down-tempo track is comparable to the Indie-Rock sound that now dominates the arena tours. Big, boomy drums and atmospheric guitars brings in a ‘swaying’ feel. The double time outro creates a more energetic ending.
