Greatest Rock Bands of the '80sisoldmysoulforrocknroll
The Contenders: Page 2XW
Kiss was a solid group in the 80's. They should be rank ahead of at least 3 bands above them on this list.
Kiss was not that bad in the 80s to be no 28.
Top 70s, but still kings in 80s. Move up!
Should rank upV3 Comments
Poison is the top band and the hottest guy in the world and they are so nice and sweet that why I love them so much and there song really move me and make me think about my life as well. there is no better band as poison cause they rock.
Poison was good but a band should be voted on by quality of music, not by the way they look.
These guys fall into the pop-metal category, meaning they suck.
One of my favorite bandsV2 Comments
MTV helped blow this band up in the early 80's
Highly under rated band. For the 80's. Dokken should be a top ten
Powerful genre-defining garage punk. Ian Curtis.. tragic genius.. As tragically great as Kurt Cobain..
Doesn't get any better than this!V1 Comment
Whitesnake is the band that got me into the awesome world of hard rock and glam metal. It is definitely supposed to be in the top 3.
David Coverdale's vocals are second to none
Music videos made this group great in the late 80'sV1 Comment
The Smiths, The Cure and U2 should be top 3. Morrissey and Marr best combo ever. So many GREAT songs in a short time. Nothing compares to The Smiths.
Morrissey & Marr... TOGETHER, I rest my case... But they are not rockers
Such a huge inspiration to many other bands after themV1 Comment
Along with The Cars, The Police are arguably the best 1980's band.V2 Comments
Best solo guitar of the 80's virtuoso!V2 Comments
#1 most played rock song ever- stairway to heaven. These guys deserve to be high on the list.V2 Comments
Peaked early and faded away
Took a page out of KISS beauty book on showmanship, One great song
45th for a rock band that was constantly touring, making records, outsold concerts every year and sold millions of records during the 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's and 2010's, come on! It's not fair! And with NO WITH NO HELP FROM THE MEDIA! Let alone the musicianship in their music, this band should and must be within the top 5!
Terrific band. Geddy Lee is the BEST high-pitch rock voice. Terrific high wattage power musical scales and riffs.
30th! think about the music these guys play. there are only three musicians in this band!
Majestic musicianshipV6 Comments
