Blank Generation 21 - Before There Was Punk Rock There Was Glam Rock
Blank Generation
Steve Green

This week’s show is a Top 40 countdown of bands and artists that preceded the 1976 Punk Rock explosion and influenced what was to come without knowing it. For me glam rock’s glory years were 1972 through to 1976 after which punk rock changed everything. Are the chosen artists all glam rock? Are there any glaring omissions? If so let me know.
