Glam Rock is a genre of rock music that emerged in the early 1970s in the United Kingdom. It is characterized by an androgynous fashion style, outrageous costumes, and the use of heavy makeup. Musically, Glam Rock is characterized by a heavy guitar-driven sound, often with a strong emphasis on hooks and melodies. It is often associated with the glam metal genre, but is distinct in its own right. Glam Rock is often seen as a precursor to punk rock, and its influence can be heard in many modern rock genres.
