Yes, Chithra is great artist from 80's - bradman
In 80's Chithra is New face. But she capture the music world in a single song - clintenV 2 Comments
U2 made the biggest impact in the 80's and still going strong. You know this list is a joke when Bono isn't ranked higher then Heart. He is one of the greatest song writers of all time.
Presence and passion. This is not even close! Time magazines band
Of the decade.
U2 deserve number 1. Forget Michael Jackson, his contribution to music was nothing compared to U2's. - Radiosight
U2 is awesome and they keep on going! Bono is amazing!V 3 Comments

With hits such as "Don't Stop Believing," "Open Arms", "Lights" etc. how is Journey not on the list? I am guessing that every single person in the civilized world knows at least one song. Their songs have stood the test of time, and "Don't Stop Believing" has become super popular again. They are one the most distinguished bands of the 80s, and are capable of such diverse sounds. They deserve a place on the list, if only for the insane range and beauty of their lead singer's voice. Steve Perry tips the balance, making this good band incredible.
#142? Are you kidding?!?! Based on record sales, concert attendance, longevity, recurrent popularity three decades later, Santana pedigree, populizers of the power ballad, and innumerable copycat bands... This is one of the most successful and influential bands of all time. They have their haters for being too "corporate" and/or too "commercial", but Journey is clearly a top ten artist of the 1980's.
Bryan Adams, Whitney Houston, Belinda Carlisle, Depeche Mode ahead of Journey and Queen. I don't think so, take a look at the body of work.
Journey should be #1V 5 Comments
John Lennon is the best musician on this listV 1 Comment
The Clash were born out of the punk movement but were not stuck in it. They grew to make incredible music with diverse influences
London Calling is one of the greatest rock albums of all time. They inspired many bands, like U2, and we're incredibly influential.
Yes I would have ranked them higher Top Ten
How are these guys not higher? Best band in the 80's, cracked America and were the One Direction of the day, but much better. Hungry Like the Wolf, The Reflex, Rio, Is There Something I Should Know, Save a Prayer, Wild Boys, View to a Kill, Girls on Film, Ordinary World, Notorious, Planet Earth, etc, etc. All classics! DD forever guys
Great band. Most underrated musicians due to style and looks. I've seen them live 7 times and they're still going strong. How many of these bands can say that?
Duran Duran pretty much created New Wave. The original 5 members had the perfect amount of Punk and Disco to create the perfect sound. Andy is one of the greatest guitarists.
Love Duran Duran, reminds me of a dear friend that I lost to cancer. She loved this group!V 11 Comments
Love Huey Lewis and the News! Reminds me of great times with great friends!
Yes, he is one of the greatest artists from the 80s and 90s.
Singles: "Careless Whisper", "Faith", "Father Figure", "One More Try", "Monkey", "A Different Corner", "Kissing a Fool", "I Want Your Sex"
His voice has power and range wham! Was one of the biggest bands in the 80s
Should be way higher...Listen to One More Try, it is so powerful.
The Best of the Best, He should be in top 10, at least1V 3 Comments
Kiss... I honestly believe, one of the BEST Bands of the 80s... Even now, it's quite amazing! Think about it... Michael Jackson, may be good... But Kiss? Kiss... Is.. Out... STANDING! Haha... Take that MJ! Go Kiss!
There the hottest band in the world!
KISS came out with heaps and heaps of hits I was made for loving you, god gave rock and roll to you, dr love and so much more. They rocked america in the 70s and 80s and they are legendary group of players Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. Plus there funny and created a ad for dr pepper and are a amazing band
