Greatest Bands from the '80sRHCPfan
The Contenders: Page 7XW
"Dreaming" is one of my favourite songs from O.M.D. it's not exactly their most popular since they have produced song after song of Top Ten hits in the British, Australian, Canadian and American Charts. One of their biggest hits, "Enola Gay" is named after the plane that dropped the Hiroshima Bomb in Japan in WWII. But I guess, O.M.D. is best remembered for that iconic "If You Leave" for the hit movie "Pretty in Pink"
Best synth pop band ever. I been hearing them since end of 70s until now. Almost 45 years active...
A great band! Can't believe it's down here!?
The best band of the techno popV3 Comments
amazing band. just give them a chance. listen to Sadistic desire. also if the intro to some of their songs are quiet and slow, wait a couple seconds and it will speed up to speed metal. like Kurenai and silent jealousy and rose of pain.
George and Andrew were two guys that were perfect together to produce timeless pop songs and image. George with an amazing voice made this group one of the best and he later became the best with his own solo career.
George Michael is a very talented singer and songwriter. Underrated and should be higher on the list.
George was the best singer and songwriter then and still is now
People from the 80s are no way voting on this - 119th come on! They were 80s LegendsV4 Comments
Do you play Dragon's Dogma?
Should be in top 10. one of the best rap/hip hop artist everV1 Comment
Best Hard Rock Group from the 80's. Unfortunately, they were pigeon holed with the Hairbands of early. Their music is straight up rocking blues - no fillers or manufactured music by the label! Long live TESLA!
Tesla is the best 80s band. That's a fact
123? Are u kidding me?! Tesla had some of the greatest lyrics, hard hitting yet lucid sounds. I was beginning to wonder if they were even on the list. Should be in the top 20.V1 Comment
And the Style Council should also be on this list.
As with all great bands time hasn't dulled their songs great writing great bass and a top drummer
By far the BEST British band.V4 Comments
.. We are all working for the weekendV2 Comments
Let's not forget their ever awesome "space age love song".
I'll admit it. I love them for their hair.V3 Comments
One of the best bands I have ever heard. That drummer was awesome
WOW... 118 really... This band is fantastic! They are the epitome of an 80's band... Great music, should be top 30 at the very least!
The Fixx is very underrated. Their songs have a lot of depth and meaning
The Fixx should be in the top 25. This band had hit after hit and were very talented musicians and song writters.
What exactly is Simply Red doing on place 100?
Loved simply red. Such memories.V1 Comment
Musically the most talented band on this list, bar none. Could have achieved greatness
Everything they did nearly 40 years ago still sounds fresh today.
A band not happy with the commercial side of the music industry but what a live act.
She loved rock and roll. She loved chicks. We had a lot in common.
The killing moon is THE song of the 80's!
A band and their drum machine take on the worldV2 Comments
Not sure whose opinion this list was... But here's mine. Pink Floyd is one of the greatest bands EVER! Lots of great bands on this list... But Pink Floyd should be #5 on any list! Thought this was an 80's list? See a lot of bands on here that came out well before the 80's?
This is a "contest" for the Eighties, not what they did in the Sixties and Seventies... This band should NEVER have reformed without Roger... Their albums without him simply were not good enough to be called PF albums! Not that they were bad, they weren't, but David was a great guitar player and vocalist, not a prolific writer!
139? Are you kidding me? Best selling album and they are 139. Who would put A ha ahead of pink Floyd? They should be top 20 at least.
Another Break On The Wall is the bestV13 Comments
Sound Garden is the best rock band till date... Experience and then you would know what they are all about.
