Glam Girls ROCKIN out on Electric Guitar and Bass

Be it written in the annals of the toilet that it was W. that brought this upon us.

Last week, two of our best pals (Nordling Rites ov Karhu and Vegglampe) tied with 8 votes. You may fight to the death or share the throne, but let it be known that there is only room for one butt on the ruling seat, which means someone must sit on someone else’s lap. Work it out.

Next week, we’re gonna do a thing that someone suggested (which one of you was it again?). We did Riff ov the Year for 2015, but we didn’t do Solo ov the Year. And now we’re gonna. Pick your favorite solo of 2015 and send it my way at toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your name, a link to the riff, the time of the riff, and an explanation. Readers, writers, lurkers, haterz — you’re all welcome to enter.

Let’s glam it up I guess.

 

Masterlord / W.

M: This shitty fucking album is pretty much the extent of my knowledge about glam. The riff at around 0:13 is lame af, but it starts with a Tom G. Warrior grunt, which makes it better than the rest of the submissions.

W: If you’re gonna go glam, go all the way. A pretty dong-expanding riff starts at 0:14.

[Note: this was not planned, but we’re both too stubborn to change our picks.]

 

Joe

3:56 *high pitched hair metal yell*

 

Stanley

Along with the Scorpions, Mötley Crüe were a gateway band that sucked me into the abyss in which I now dwell. I vividly remember my brother bringing home Shout at the Devil and being blown away by riff after riff. I could have picked any riff off this album, but here’s one of the most iconic. Riff starts at 0:00.

 

Eliza

Looking back on all the glam metal that I listened to in the past, Dokken are one of the best bands from this genre and this is quite possibly my favourite song of theirs.

 

McNulty

I’m assuming Glam Metal and Cock Rock are synonymous… so I have submitted my favorite cock rock artist of all, Akerstache. Hit play on this masterpiece (riff starts at the beginning), recorded in 1985, and experience what some might call the birth of music.

 

Zeke

Are Skid Row glam?  Since Sebastian was prettier than any of the other puffs back then, I’m going to say the answer is yes; at least their first album.   I’ll also go out on a limb and declare the riff that starts at 3:24 to be the heaviest glam riff ever written.

 

Richter

I got into music long enough ago to have succumbed to the insipid allure of glam. Most of it has not aged well–no matter what JAG will tell you. But Bang Tango is some darker-edged glam that I can still unironically jam. 0:00 (Eyeliner strongly suggested but not required.)

 

Ted Nü-Djent

In my early days, there were no better band than Mötley Crüe. Now more famous for their off stage antics it’s easy to forget (or ignore) that they wrote some very catchy songs that, for me, still hold up well to this day. Riff starts just after the drum beat intro and carries on through to the chorus.

 

Carl

Here we find Motley Crue’s absolute classic “Ten Seconds to Love,” in which Vince Neil brags about how quickly he’s able to ejaculate, for some reason. The quintessential “dumb guy riff” starts at 0:00 and gets repeated through the whole damn song. Good luck getting those six notes out of your head for the next week.

 

Waynecro

I don’t know whether this is technically glam metal, but these gals are definitely glamorous and playing some kind of metal. If it’s not glam enough for you, pretend these ladies are actually dudes performing in the late 1980s. The riff at 0:31 is pretty fucking cool, as is the riffing going on during the chorus (1:19). Look, I tried. It was either this or something from one of the first few Pantera albums.

 

KJU

I can’t fucking stand Poison, but ‘Native Tongue’ is a blues-rock-glam masterpiece. Vote for this, or you’ll forever cover your bald spot with a wig-bandana in a house full of Bachelerretes.

 

Tigeraid

I do not like Glam metal. The only Glam metal song I’ve ever liked is War Machine, because it doesn’t sound like Glam. But I’m not posting that low-hanging fruit. No fucking idea. So I asked my buddy Bob who is into Glam. He did not disappoint. This guaranteed Riff ov the Week win is dedicated to him. Main riff is gÜd.

  • Boss the Ross

    Good morning you glam metal POSERS.

    Just kidding, you guys are the best!

  • Eliza

    I’m so curious to see who’ll win this edition. By the way, I was talking about the opening riff of the song in my submission.

  • EsusMoose

    I was abnormally excited for ROTW this morning. Then I saw it was the glam edition. Life can be cruel.

  • Maik Beninton™

    JAG and JJD didn’t submit, you failed us!

    • Boss the Ross

      JJD even said he picked a “doozy of a riff” last week.

      • Maik Beninton™

        Yeah, I guess he forgot to actually send it.

        • Boss the Ross

          Haha, too busy on his jam band binge.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I did.

          • Boss the Ross

            SHAME

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I was going to use Mr. Scary off of the Dokken live album. I forgot.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        JJD says a lot of things

    • RustyShackleford

      Literally my FIRST thought when I finished reading!

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      JAG already said he wouldn’t in the FB group

  • DVRKBEVRD

    THIS WEEK, EVERYONE LOSES

    • Boss the Ross

      TOTAL DEATH

    • Eliza

      I take it that you don’t particularly like glam?

      • DVRKBEVRD

        hey, ive seen Motley Crue and WASP live. ive paid my dues

        • Eliza

          WASP is pretty cool. Motley get boring after a while.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Lucky. I’d kill to see WASP live

          • Eliza

            Even nowadays?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Yes. They have had a huge impact on me and they still do.

          • Eliza

            They’re a good metal band, I’ve liked them for a pretty long while now.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      *WINS

    • Count_Breznak

      What a strange ROTW, the only way to win is not to play.

  • Dubs

    I voted Stan as that very riff was my second choice.

    • Boss the Ross

      I can’t believe I actually voted Motley Crue for a RotW…

      • Eliza

        We’re living through some strange days.

  • RustyShackleford

    GAH! Much disappointment that there’s nothing from the FIRST Motley album. Way heavier than later stuff. I know Shout At The Devil is supposed to be their greatest or whatever but Too Fast For Love is still just more fun for me. But regardless I’m gonna vote Nu-Djent. Yup!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPJnGCV6634

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I almost submitted this

  • Pentagram Sam

    Toss up between Looks That Kill and Skid Row. Went with the Skids cos of the SOLOOOOO and the amazing prechorus. “I’m the only thing you need, upon your love I FEE-EEEED” then the weedles begin.

    Does this break the rules of the riff week by utilizing other aspects of the songs for a tiebreaker? THIS IS IMPORTANT

    • Maik Beninton™

      Sometimes I vote for the song I liked the most.

      • Zeke

        Often

    • Eliza

      I voted for Skid Row too.

    • YES IT BREAKS THE ROOOLZ.

      Or no. I don’t care.

    • Zeke

      That is a very tasty solo!

  • Sir Tapir The Based

    Boss The Ross won last week. He got 13 votes.

    • Maik Beninton™

      You know things are bad when you forget to announce the winner for 2 consecutive weeks.
      Edit: I missed that it was a tie. Ops

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        Those two tied with 8, but Ross got 13. I ain’t no mathematician, but 13 is more than 8.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          8 + 8 = 16. 16 > 13

    • Vegglampe

    • -Illuminati Toilet Plot-

      -The Truth is In There-

    • Boss the Ross

      I didn’t want to be a dick and bring it up.

    • @masterlord cmon son

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    The only good glam metal album in the history of ever.

  • ME GORAK B.C.™
    • Sir Tapir The Based

      For once I agree with you, McGorak.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      If I had to choose between Motley Crue, Poison or Bodom, I’d choose Bodom. And I fucking hate Bodom.

      • ME GORAK B.C.™
      • Eliza

        Glad to see I’m not the only one who can’t get into Bodom.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Welcome to the club.

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

            GORAK SMASH WITH CLUB!!!!!!!!!!!
            BODOM ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!

          • Eliza

            I’m honoured.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          I’m not too picky, I can usually stomach a lot. But there’s something about their sound that I just can’t stand.
          Well, that and Alexi’s nail polish. Fucking hell, fuck off with the nail polish already.

          • Eliza

            Personally, I dislike CoB because back when I gave them a listen, I felt that their everything they did had been don ebefore and better by other people.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            They are pretty good musicians, but there’s just something incredibly cheesy about their sound. I know, the cheese is part of their appeal but personally I can only take a small amount of it in order to enjoy it. There is some more or less cheesy stuff I can dig, but it’s of a different kind than the one that’s on display in COB or a lot of power metal bands.
            To each their own, but I’m just unable to get into it.

          • Eliza

            I agree.

          • Pentagram Sam

            Question, not arguing. Do you approach them as a Finnish Power Metal band with harsh vox, or as a (not) melodeathy band?

            Just curious cos I see em as basically the Finnish Power Metal sound like Strato and early Sonata but with scream vox. I know some people hate them right up front if they approach them as any kind of “death” or “black” metal cos they obviously aren’t.

            Btw my familiarity is basically up to Are You Dead Yet

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            That’s an interesting take. I don’t like them because for some reason they just rub me the wrong way.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I always kinda approached them as some Euro-power/melodeath mixture. Instrumentally they’re closer to Euro-power, but the vocals give it some of that melodeath vibe. I like some melodeath if it’s done right; I like several At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, Insomnium or (older) In Flames albums. But Euro-power is not really something I can get into. I like some of the American power stuff such as Manilla Road, Iced Earth, Cirith Ungol, Riot… But in terms of Euro-power I only like some Blind Guardian and Kamelot (who despite being American are stylistically closer to Euro-power) stuff.
            I feel COB brings the exact same cheesiness that turns me off most Euro-power bands and adds to that extremely bland and mediocre melodeathy vocs. Laiho can play the guitar for sure, but his vocals are boring and his lyrics are godawful. I think he’s an even worse lyricist than for instance Corey Taylor. And I could turn a blind eye to the terrible lyrics if the rest would be good, but it just feels way too bland for me to enjoy it.
            But this is all my personal opinion on them of course. I don’t mind others enjoying them. I mean, they have a shitload of fans so they must be doing something right for a lot of people.

          • Pentagram Sam

            Right on man, I too am down with a whole bunch of the melodeath bands you listed. Love me some Dark Tranquillity especially, all eras, and old In Flames up to and including Clayman, yeppers.

            Basically the first three Bodom I really like cos they just sound like cool ass cheesy power metal ala Finland style with harsh vox. And I like to shout along with all the “FUCKS” hahaha . Also they and early In Flames are good “gateway” bands to straight up death metal full on. Sometimes it takes alot for fans of clean metal vocals to make the transition to growls and screams. But if they can make the crossing to shit like BATHORY and DISSECTION then mission accomplished!

            Btw, hahahah again man, not arguing, more like flowing metal convo as thoughts come to me, I think Kamelot is more Euro based now than USA. Shit, I think only Thomas and Casey are still in Florida. They used to be all North American except Khan, but I think now fuckin Sean Tibbets (bass), Oliver Polotai (keys) and the singer dude Tommy are all in Europe and they do alot of shit back n forth thru ye olde interwebs.

            Of course Thomas is the main writer so maybe that overrides all. gehaaaaahhhhh I dunno how this shit works

            Btw that basically outs me as a Kamelot fan from the old days w Crimson Glory sounding singer dude to Ghost Opera before Khan became all Jesusy. Don’t have the two ones w Tommy singing tho.

          • Boogers Moshing In A Crouton

            The fact that every single one of their albums sounds the exact same, and always has that feel of them really really trying to become a top 10 bro-metal band?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I think the cheese is even worse than the bro.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I hate them too. My cousin I’d opening for them and I’m not seeing them.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Proof?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            My cousin’s band is Vision Serpent.
            http://thechancetheater.com/event/6386355

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            A split ep with Vision Serpent and Mr. In Your House 4 incoming?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Nope. Mr In Your House 4 is permanently disbanded and we play different types of music.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Why’s Mr In Your House 4 disbanded.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Because it is.

          • Eliza

            I don’t hate them. They way to bland and unoriginal to hate.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Seconded

        • ME GORAK B.C.™

          GORAK MIGHT BE ONLY 1 IN TOILET WHO ADMIT LIKING THEM!!!!!!!!!! EXCEPT MAYBE LINK, BUT NOT SURE!!!!!!!!

          • Waynecro

            I like CoB’s first few albums.

  • Maik Beninton™

    McNulty, your pick brings the lolz.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    These are all awful and I hate them. Glam/Hair metal is one of my least-favorite metal/rock genres. I don’t think Skid Row are really glam, but I only like 2 songs by them and Sebastian Bach gets on my nerves almost as much as that bandana-wearing über-douche from Poison. I like 4 songs from Motley Crüe, none of which were submitted. That Celtic Frost album is an abomination and shame on both of you (W. and Masterlord) for reminding me it exists. And shame on you as well Joe, for reminding me about Pantera’s pre-CFH output. Fuck that shit. Whose idea was it again to do a Glam ROTW? Glam is bad, and you should feel bad.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Glam is really bad, but Pantera’s post-glam stuff is worse.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY
        • Maik Beninton™

          You shouldn’t waste your time with that animal.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Ah well, Tapir actually has quite good taste. Most of the stuff he likes, is great. The thing is, he just doesn’t like a lot haha!

          • Maik Beninton™

            From what I gather he hates all of the big4 thrash bands.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That’s only scratching the surface…

          • Boogers Moshing In A Crouton

            He probably hates the top 400 most popular thrash bands.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Nope

      • ME GORAK B.C.™
        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          What is that?

          • EsusMoose

            Ace Ventura Pet Detective

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It looks awful.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            It’s not

          • ME GORAK B.C.™
          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            ..

          • Maik Beninton™

            You don’t know what a good comedy movie is JJD.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Yes I do. Good comedy is Monty Python. This idiot and his stupid hair annoy me.

          • Lacertilian

            *Ace Ventura – When Nature Calls

            Source: It was on tv last week, and I’ll be damned if I didn’t chuckle during the 15 minutes I rewatched.

          • Dubs

            Confession: I really enjoy both Ace Ventura movies.

          • Lacertilian

            I loved them as a kid. While Mrs Lizard & I were watching we discussed whether if the movie were to be released today instead the 90’s, would it be derided for having some questionable scenes that may or may not be considered culturally offensive.
            #BatsPooToo

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I find the movie Trainwreck to be more culturally offensive than anything Ace Ventura had to offer

          • Lacertilian

            Had to search that one, thought it might have been an oldie but turns out a mate brought it over for the missus to watch.
            I remember not being able to ingest enough weed to find it funny but that’s about it, was there a particular scene or something?

          • more beer

            So you and KJU probably have something in common.

          • Boogers Moshing In A Crouton

            No shame in that! Sometimes my classiness tends to rub off on others like that.

          • more beer

            You have very loose definition for classy!

            So that makes you one hell of a mommas boy.

            Well shit guess I misread the title when I saw it a few years back

          • Lacertilian

            Pet Detective is the first one.

      • This is a statement about which I would say: “There is nothing false in this statement. Carry on.”

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        NOPE

    • more beer

      Skid Row was most certainly a gam band.

      • Boss the Ross

        Quick question. Do you consider Twisted Sister Glam?

        • more beer

          In a way yes. But in a way they are there own entity. Before they hit it big they were putting out much heavier music than most of the glam bands.

          • Boss the Ross

            I like your answer. They were the band i was considering as a submission, but then that would imply that I think they are a glam band. Which i don’t.

          • more beer

            I kind of see them more like I see the NY Dolls.

          • Boss the Ross

            Yeah, definitely more of the shock rock kinda stuff with overthetop make up versus looking like a woman.

          • more beer

            Exactly.

      • Boogers Moshing In A Crouton

        They always called themselves punk back in the day though, which is laughable at best.

        • more beer

          Blink 182 is hardcore punk compared to them. I certainly don’t consider either punk.

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        I stand corrected then. “18 and Life” is their biggest hit, and the only song of theirs I remember the name of offhand. There’s one other song that I think I remember liking, but I’ll be damned if I can recall which one without a google or youtube search.

  • I wanted to submit a WASP riff but I didn’t want to listen to WASP to find one.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      Seriously, check out Crimson Idol. I dislike glam metal as much as the next person, but Crimson Idol’s actually a well composed, creative album with tons of atmosphere.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        That album has had such a massive impact on me.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          This makes me wanna stay as far away as possible from that album.

          • Dubs

            Yo, that Oranssi Pazuzu album is really, really good.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Their best so far imo.

            I still like Ihsahn.

          • My favorite song my em. That fucking groove.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            hmm, not bad. not what i was hoping for tho

          • lol

          • Boss the Ross

            No Barbarian?

          • Which one?

          • Boss the Ross
          • Yeah, that track was rad. Too many bands bro.

          • Boss the Ross

            I think its going to be a pretty killer album.
            Way too many.

      • Pentagram Sam

        I also think the reason it sounds really different is cos it was gonna be a Blackie Lawless solo album cos of the semi autobiographical subject matter. Kulick is on lead guitar too.

        I think it boiled down to the record label saying “who the fuck is gonna buy this big ass concept album of shitty childhood, drug abuse, and eventual on stage suicide if it’s a solo album?” and made him release it as WASP for name recognition. I also think that’s part of the reason why in Chainsaw Charlie he calls the label boss a “lying motherfucker”. I think WASP were dropped after that album and Still Not Black Enough was on a smaller label.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          Exactly. I perfectly understand people not liking WASP, but Crimson Idol deserves a shot just because it’s an entirely different beast. It’s a dark, haunting album with great songwriting and an outstanding vocal performance by Lawless.

      • I did. Goddamnit.

        • Stanley

          Did you get Hostium from Europe or a US Distro?

          • Hells Headbangers and NWN have it. If I were you I’d go for NWN since they are based in California.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            hey stan, i remember you and i thot highly of Antlers’ A Gaze into the Abyss. i dont know if you got a phys copy but the bandcamp has some LPs left, and ill be gettin one. just a heads up

          • Stanley

            Yeah, I love that album and I still play it all the time. The solo in Memories of the Extinct was almost my submission for next week. I actually already have the vinyl but thanks for the heads up.

      • Stanley

          can we finally put an end to repeatedly having to tell people where you went

  • CT-12

    Stoked to see all the Motley Crue love in here; Mick Mars had pretty unfuckwithable tone, and I really like the production of their first few albums. Had they not gotten so famous and been working against the thrash scene, I figure metal folks would be way more prone to namedrop them as a classic band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQEmYngYaOM

    • Boss the Ross

      I can’t deny his tone, it does sound really good.

          • Hey now! just chillin’ and livin’ dat #RoxyLife. How ya been?!!

          • DVRKBEVRD

            just livin that shitty life, chugging it hard. smoking blunts on blunts

      • Pentagram Sam

        One of the things that makes Too Fast really cool is that there is ONE guitar track recorded. When Mick goes into a solo, it’s just straight up Nikki Sixx and Tommy. I fucking love that type of raw ass live feel when it comes to studio recordings.

        • Boss the Ross

          Yeah, that is really cool

    • The first 2 albums are just fine. After that, meh.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Mick Mars is the most under rated guitarist in the game. I love Crüe , they were the first band I ever super fanned on back when Dr Feelgood dropped and it’s a love affair that continues to this day

    • Boogers Moshing In A Crouton

      Poor guy’s definitely sporting some major camel toe on that cover.

  • If I was participating, this would’ve been my pick – the whole vocal bit around 1:50 after the solo brings the laughs.

            Wasn’t it bad?

          • It certainly was.
            I’m gonna watch the latest ROH ppv tomorrow. I tried to watch SHINE Women last night, but the internet outage made me miss 1/2 of it.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            They added some more ECW TV to the WWE Network. The only reason I haven’t cancelled it is because of the older stuff.

        • Boss the Ross

          Hey buddy!

          • Hey, good to seeya!
            I would’ve shown up here yesterday but my neighborhood had a 7 hour Comcast outage.

          • more beer

            We had outages here yesterday too. Plus scattered all week. They are the worst.

          • Yesterday was the first one in a long time. The storm on Wednesday did a lot of damage.

          • more beer

            It’s been like spring here so I don’t know why ours wasn’t working.

          • It was a powerful rain/wind storm, 65F at 3AM, would’ve had my window open if not for the wind.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            stupid warm weather, i can already feel my farmers tan getting a chubby

          • I love it. We’ve got a lot of 50-55 degree days this coming week.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            its been all over the place here. higher elevations had snow of a couple inches yesterday, 65 tomorrow

          • more beer

            It’s been 65 to 70 here.

          • Boss the Ross

            Damn, that blows. How are you and Mom?

          • We’re just fine. She’s doing okay. Fortunately I had the latest Agent Carter eps for her to watch during the outage.

          • Boss the Ross

            Solid! Good to hear man.

    Don’t let the face-melting & era defining solo fool you, this is one hot track that paved the road for 80s Glam. Lucky for the likes of Lynch, Kendall , Bratta and even EVH that Malmsteen departed the Glam scene.
