Drawing the line between punk and glam?

How do you separate the two? At the sleaziest end of glam, both the look and sound are VERY similar to punk music.

 

How do you define the difference?

 

The reason I ask, is that I'm considering adding the CD below to HH, but am wondering if it's out of bounds.

 

Would you include this CD here?

 

I've included 2 samples below. Most of the songs sound like sample #1, but then #2 is straight ahead bar rock.

 

All Night Long

 

Thank God for Jack Daniels

 

P.S. Nice album cover!

The punk influenced glam'n'sleaze sound is probably my favourite genre so i hear quite a bit of this sort of stuff.

 

Personnaly I would say that those samples seem far closer to punk than glam.

 

Actaully, in my opinion they head more in the punk'n'roll direction... dirty hard rock with the punk influence, or punk rock with the dirty hard rock influence. I don't hear much glam in there at all based on the 2 samples.

 

As you say, alot of sleazy glam can border on punk but these usually have really catch type melodies. Think of for example The Mistakes, or The Erotics... they are very punk oriented but retain really glam-like catchy melodies in their tunes. On the otherhand you can have glam bands with a punk influence such as Scarlet Violet or Hollywood Teasze.

 

That being said, I would not obejct to this style of music being on the main site.

Sleaze-rock, dirty-rock or sleazy punk rock would be the best descritions for it. Similar to backyard babies...?

I ran across this one sometime ago and grabbed it because it was very cheap. To me, this isn't really punk in the Damned, Misfits sense of the genre. Maybe Nu Punk? I really didn't care for most of the cd although "Thank God For Jack Daniel's" puts a smile on my face.

They are pretty close, I have heard a few songs so I can't really tell...

 

One way I do define the differance in the two genre's is

Guitar Solos.... the "Chuck Berry" Double stops and bends are NOT Solos IMO..

those are riffs...Punk uses those...

Glam/Sleaze Punk has more "Angus Young" styled Solos..a bit longer

More speed and more varied in and throughout the song...

but the biggest defining difference is Punk bands will NOT

confess to loving metal....

 

as far as including it on HH I'd say No...

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
