5 Craziest Glam Metal Videos
It was horrible difficult to choose only 5 videos. I hope that this selection will show variety of glam metal style. I guided primarily by originality and unique effects.
#1 Quiet Riot – The Wild And The Young (1986)
This is the first song which I’ve heard and since this moment I started listening glam metal music. It’s very original video, because it shows all glam metal characteristic features: long hair, strange clothes and make-up.
#2 Twisted Sister – I Wanna Rock (1984)
‘I Wanna Rock’ together with ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It‘ the greatest and most recognizable ‘Twisted Sister’ songs. Both videos are still controversial.
#3 Dokken – It’s Not Love (1985)
Song comes from my favorite Dokken album released in 1985 – ‘Under Lock and Key‘. The most interesting thing in video is that band is driving on truck trailer within city.
#4 Ratt – Wanted Man (1984)
What’s original in video? I love a combination of two themes: Wild West and Ratt band performance. It looks almost like a western 🙂
#5 Mötley Crüe – Girls, Girls, Girls (1987)
And now it’s high time for cherry pie. “The first video of “Girls, Girls, Girls” was banned from MTV due to nudity”1. I think that description of this video is needless.
