diamondrexxCall it glam, call it sleaze, tag it hair metal or cock rock, Uber Rock's resident teezin' pleezin' expert Ross Welford was so impressed by Joe Daly's recent 50 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums feature that he wanted to do a list dedicated to the trashier side of rock. Calling on the UR Massive and Uber Rock Soldiers worldwide he collected an 83 band hitlist, squeezing it down to the Top 20 albums ever. You may agree, you may not. You might think that some bands don't even belong on a glam rock list. Whichever way you swing you have to agree, there are some great albums here! Ross, pick up that guitar and talk to me!!!
