Metal music has a reputation for being hard and aggressive, a celebration of the darker side of life. Something happened in the '80s however, with a baffling infusion of glam that spawned a big-haired, face-painted style. This bizarre mix of makeup and macho macabre left an unforgettable mark on the genre, with some attempts to nail the look coming up hilariously short.

We here at GIGGAG have decided to celebrate this strange period in music history, with a selection of the funniest and most awkward metal band photos out there. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

X Japan

RIP Hide (guitar player. To this very day a legend in Japan. Died far too early and still noone knows what exactly happened). X Japan were one of the things that changed the Japanese youth so much back in the 80s. If you like metal and are interested, look for a band named Seikimatsu/Seikima-II/聖飢魔Ⅱ. They were founded in the same year as X Japan, they're still active and are one of the bands that still look this wild.
