This is a list of notable musical acts who pertain to the glam rock genre of music.
Glam rock bands generally featured flamboyant frontmen and outrageous, over-the-top clothes and sonically, they combined traditional rock music with the avant-garde sound of experimental rock. Most of the glam rock (or glitter rock) bands saw their popularity peak in the 1970s, which saw a number of the best glam rock bands emerge.
Glam artists drew on diverse sources across music and throwaway pop culture, ranging from bubblegum pop and 1950s rock and roll to cabaret, science fiction, and complex art rock.   The flamboyant clothing and visual styles of performers were often camp or androgynous , and have been described as playing with nontraditional gender roles . 
- T. Rex. Marc Bolan, who for all intents and purposes was T. Rex, more or less invented glam rock in 1971. Dialing back the freak-folk of his first band John's Children and the original incarnation called Tyrannosaurus Rex, and adding some electrified Chuck Berry groove to his Tolkien tales, Marc rocked glitter and boas like few other.
- David Bowie. Like Bob Marley did with reggae, Bowie embodied the genre while simultaneously rising above it, creating his "Ziggy Stardust" persona after seeing his good friend Marc Bolan's career take off with a similar concept.
- New York Dolls. The New York Dolls changed the world in about a dozen tracks — much like their predecessors who took inspiration from them, the Sex Pistols.
- Slade. The bad boys of UK glam, Slade partied and performed like the good-time hooligans they were, mastering the art of the crowd anthem with purposefully misspelled chants like "Cum On Feel the Noize" and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now."

Some artists from same time period, which were apart either group musically, like New York Dolls, still got grouped in with glam rock, thanks to their visual aesthetics. Subgenres which draw influence from glam rock include glam metal, visual key, punk rock, gothic rock and New Romantic, among others.
In the United States glam gained a harder edge with the proto-punk stylings of the New York Dolls and the glitzy hard rock of Kiss and Alice Cooper. By the 1980s glam had devolved into the heavy metal excesses of such American groups as Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe, and Poison.
