Metal music has a reputation for being hard and aggressive, a celebration of the darker side of life. Something happened in the ’80s however, with a baffling infusion of glam that spawned a big-haired, face-painted style. This bizarre mix of makeup and macho macabre left an unforgettable mark on the genre, with some attempts to nail the look coming up hilariously short.
These poses and, especially, the characteristic clothes do not refer you to the series “Xena, The Warrior Princess”? And if it had been released in the ’80s, we could easily cogitate that the photos were actually lousy cover attempts.
This band had a great prominence in rock. She was responsible for reviving British heavy metal in the 1970s and 1980s. But, as you know, the brilliance of rock does not stop such strange moments from being perpetuated.
3. Tunnel of Love
At least the group had a uniform look: apparently everyone was in the same salon. Realize the haircut of the three!
4. Motley Crue
Chains are never too much, are they? This look undoubtedly put many children to cry.
5. Crimson Glory
Speaking of children, look at this picture. What was the intention of the group when taking a photo with a baby? He is visibly terrified.
6. Pretty Boy Floyd
In the upper left corner of the image is a proud statement from the band: “We will never regret this picture.”
7. Black Death
This band was known for being the first heavy metal group that had all black members. And, of course, she did not fall behind in bizarre matters.
8. X Japan
Here’s a great idea if you have not decided on your Halloween costume yet.
9. Madam X
In the 80’s it was practically impossible to overdo hair or make-up.
10. Michael Angelo Batio
Is it Rambo?
11. Night Jamming Band
We can see a strong trend of the 80’s fashion in this image: a crazy mix of prints.
With this outfit, they could get into a horror movie set and no one would distrust the invaders among the cast.
This band took the weirdness seriously!
14. Judas Priest
While some abused makeup or chains, this band was a fan of spikes.
They were one of the best bands ever! And they loved a bizarre photo!
