Band They Most Resemble: Def Leppard

Almost everybody knows The Darkness.They had a few big hits in Europe,while having their album crack the top 40 in the U.S (not an easy thing for a glam band these days),and pretty much made the first step for glam metal's comeback.They are comedic in their songwriting, but still get serious when it's it time for it.A lot of people may hate them, but people who want this type of rock back don't, and that includes me.Musically they are a Def Leppard meets Queen meets GnR, with great classic rock riffs and huge glam choruses.The lead single "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" was the biggest success glam metal had in about a decade,and other singles "Love Is Only A Feeling" and "Growing On Me" where also really popular outside of the U.S.The only track I don't like on this album is "Stuck In A Rut", I don't know why though,but there's something about it I don't like.Anyway,glam metal fans and rock fans in general should give this album a listen,and be prepared to be blown away.

"I Believe In A Thing Called Love"
"Growing On Me"
