Friday's Playlist: Hair Farmers, Sleaze Bags and Butt Rockers

OK. I'm sorry. I've tried. Up until now I really, really tried to keep it somewhat tasteful and dignified. Well, it ends now. This is the bottom of the barrel. The ultimate guilty pleasure, emphasis on the guilt. Very few of the songs in this playlist are actually recommendable. In fact a lot of it is shit. But it's good shit. The kind of shit that makes you want to rock and roll all night and party every day. In honor of the Mötley Crüe movie being such a success, here is your playlist about the 80's Hollywood Glam Metal scene.

I cheated a little: not all of those songs are actually from the 80's, from Hollywood, Glam and very few can actually be considered Metal. Some of those songs pre-date that scene by a few years, some are extremely recent and ride the sleaze rock revival wave. But they all have that vibe. You know the one. The one that makes you want to Unchain The Night. Bang Your Head. Talk Dirty To Me. The one that makes you want to scream: I Wanna Be Somebody.

This is a massive playlist which runs over 8 hours so it can't be listened to in the embedded player below. You will have to play it in the Apple Music app on your preferred device to access all of the wonderfully cheesy songs in the selection. Click HERE to do so.
