    :lmao: Its got to be the BANGLES Iggy.....they were babes!!!!
    Ahhhh the 80s glam rock produced some "pretty boy glam bands" Poison ,Tigertailz ,Pretty Boy Floyd,Stryper.....and VAIN...who probably lived up to their name. Great times...great bands...I think I dyed my hair red like Davy Vain in my day and had cowboy boots with spurs....what a poseur
    Then in contrast there was always Twisted Sister:D............

    I have heard a few of their albums, courtesy of a mate of mine who is completely obsessed with glam, but they didn't really do much for me to be honest :(

    LOU it's been a while since I've listened to glam metal. Brings back some good memories.

    Vain rocks right up there with the Crue and the L.A. Guns.:good

    I guess we go through stages....80s glam metal hasnt been on my playlists for a while...not that I ever fell out with it. There were some really great bands.I just happened to play the "No respect" VAIN album the other day and it reminded me how GOOD this band are.
    Check out these brilliant tunes done a bit more recently......hes still go it :grinthumb

    Vain

    Hello guys!
    I'm new here, I've read a lot of posts and I'm wondering why hasn't anyone mentioned Vain?
    I think is one of the most underrated bands ever!
