Best Answer

Rick Nielsen and Tom Petterson were watching a Slade show. The effects included lights, glitter and dancing around the stage. Tom commented that they had glitter everywhere, they must even have glitter in their teeth! They use every cheap trick in the book....and somehow the comment turned into the band's name.
