You can't go wrong with Lizzy Borden's stuff. They got a bit more poppy starting with Visual Lies which is my fav release by them.


One of the only bands that dressed glam as fuck, but were actually heavy metal as fuck!!!!! Lizzy borden is the fucking shit!

While Its obviously not the kind of stuff my band does (in fact the total opposite), I've always had a huge amount of respect for people like Mike Stock, Matt Aitken, and Pete Waterman's songwriting factory. Or the old Tin Pan Alley stuff. Or Lennon/Mcartney as a songwriting team, same goes for the Wilson brothers from the Beach Boys.

its hard as fuck to write an "earworm" song - something that will stick in your head because of the hook and chord progression. Let alone to do that and actually say something with a shred of artistic integrity.

I'm not interested in defending my cult cred enough to the point where I dont say that something like "a day in the life" is a magnificent achievement because it combines really clever chord changes, interesting and totally innovative at the time production techniques with lyrics that were totally in-and-of their time.

Paradise Lost - "Host".

Dont mean to sound like a queer or nothin, but Depesche Mode is a pretty sweet band Very Happy


That's alright, mate. Black Celebration is one of my all-time favourite albums. Brothers in false. Laughing

Pop Metal is Bon Jovi, Poison, Def Lep etc.


Back in the days we used to call this "hard rock". But I guess we had no clue at all.

Pop metal is the perfect term for this kind of thing, i.e. Poppy songs with clear, simple melody, song structures and maybe a catchphrase / chorus or two just played with "metal" instruments and sound.

You got the point. Wink
Good vodka thread! Smile

A lot of Death Metal have everything a pop song have.

Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Solo, First verse, Chorus, Chorus...

And as someone already said, Iron Maiden. Really catchy, in an amazing way.

Queen is really the ultimate answer to this thread. Killer playing, awesome vocals, really sharp songwriting and often surprisingly heavy. Really makes most other "metal" bands trying to do that style pretty redundant.

Don't think that mentioning Rock (even "Hard") stuff is suitable in context of the thread, eventhough some is definitely good... And really surprised someone here had balls to say he appreciate Queen, btw. Smile

I like Host, it's not pop metal though, it's just pop, electropop or whatever you call it

This atrocity must have been linked here previously but check it...
