Sound Smart: Hard Rock and Heavy / Glam Metal

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

HELTER SKELTER by The Beatles is considered one of the first HARD ROCK songs in history, being a brave experiment back in the 60’s when soft music and psychedelia were merging in the popular taste and culture.

It was not until the 70’s started, when in the UK, a new movement started, as a backlash to the Rock mainstream of the decade. A mostly superficial and mainly interested in the visual part of the show began with the name of GLAM ROCK.

QUEEN, DAVID BOWIE, ELTON JOHN, ALICE COOPER, KISS, BON JOVI, THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, and many more bands were the face of Glam Rock, wearing women’s make up, creating theatrical characters and presenting glamorous performances characterized by space-age futuristic themes.




Listen to different genres of music of the 70’s to realize the enormous variety of options that represent a decade.
