With overdriven 50's boogie riffs, bumble-gum chants, tinges of R&B mixed in, and terrible costumes Glam Rock holds a very special place in my heart. Glam rock never enjoyed much success in America except for a few imported acts from the UK. Despite a short heyday, Glam rock had a significant influence on the genres that succeeded it: punk, hard rock, heavy metal...and who could forget all those god awful hairbands?
This mix IS NOT meant to be a history lesson or all encompassing. Just like Glam it's meant to be fun and not make you think too much about hidden meanings. Play it loud and boogie hard.
