The Contenders: Page 8XW
Love this band. One of the greatest eighties bands. All I can say is "don't' you want me baby"
Really influential need to be top 20
How can the human league be 114th place. This is a travesty.
Best band of the 80V4 Comments
Great band, and still fun to listen to today. Just added them to my play list last week!
Lost steam without Roger Hodgson during the '80's, but without doubt one of the greatest bands of all time!
Absolutely one of the greatest of their time!V3 Comments
One of the best voices ever, much less in the 80'sV1 Comment
Relax, two tribes, the power of love. 3 great number 1s. Relax one of the biggest selling singles ever, should be at number 1, not 133
Shame on you this greatest band ever take on 127 place...
If your into the 80's this band have to be much higher in this chart.Three number ones and all the hype surrounding their classic video's.Not to be missed!
Great Songs and bandV5 Comments
An underrated but good-fun band from the 1980s. It's also what helped Norman Cook's career - pennylagwaberurier
They are better than most out thereV1 Comment
One of the greatest perfomers of the 8os! A dramatic theatrical voice,music for fewV1 Comment
Fantastic trio, should have at least made the top 30.V1 Comment
Oingo Boingo missing from this list entirely is a travesty. Best of the up tempo post punk bands, known for their awesome Halloween concerts and Danny Elfman has gone on to greater glory scoring movies for Tim Burton and creating the theme music for the Simpsons and others.
Yes, Yes, YES! I have waited so long for someone to mention Oingo Boingo in ANY list. Why must they be overlooked by everyone? Why we they so unloved?
MY FAVORITE BAND. Very much an 80s band, but mixing synth pop, ska, punk, and jazz gives them a unique style. Listen to Insanity for an absolute masterpiece.
This is one of the best bands of all time.V3 Comments
I loved this band and I can not find any of there songs to this day.V1 Comment
Slayer is a frigging classic! Should be way up higher on the last, not almost at the bottom.
Better than half the bands on this list.
Needs to be in top 30 at least! brutal, violent, heavy death/thrash metal
Should have been no1 lexicon of love what a classic album still sounds great,
This ladies were awesome in the 80's and I am still listening to their music.
Very catchy songs,should be much higher,still going strong,timeless songs.V1 Comment
Bros is definitely one of the most talented groups during the 80's. Their talent deserves mention given the song writing, singing and voice quality of the goss brothers.
One of a very very small number of the bands on this list that actually belong on this list.
Wrote one of the best punk rock albums of all time with double nickels on the dime, should be top ten for sure.
This is an amazing band. Even today their songs are extremely famous in the world. I loved 'The Actor' and 'Sleeping Child'. They bring back sweet memories for me!V1 Comment
The sexiest voice of the eighties! And hey, I bet this is an American-based list? Europe fans would have this sort of up-side down sirs:-) I haven't even seen the Style Councils yet... Without doubt one of the greatest of the Eighties!V2 Comments
Platinum Blonde continues to perform new music at every concert! They are sitting comfortably in the new music scene and THEY ROCK!V1 Comment
