75New Order

New Order are an incredible group; how the hell did they get left out until I added it?! When you think, hm... 80s... 80s... ; do songs like "Blue Monday", "Temptation" or "Crystal" appear in your mind?! They damn well should! So listen to them now!

78Tears for FearsTears for Fears are an English pop/rock band formed in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock more.

Soaring classic tunes bring back so many memories of the 80s. Very happy along with modern tunes on the radio even nearly 40 years on!

Absolutly the best band of all time in my eyes. But should certantly be in the top 10 especialy with the world famous hits E.G. "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" and "Shout". The world would be in a lot of anger if these songs wernt made.
