Easily the greatest "one-hit" wonder ever, they also have some really awesome songs that aren't "Take On Me", which is probably one of the greatest songs of the decade (this coming from a guy whose favorite band is either nirvana or the offspring). Their lyrics use their loose grasp in almost a cutesie way, "the sun always shines on T.V." being one of the most prevalent examples. Also, their cover of "Cryin' in the rain" took a song I didn't by a band I didn't like and made it really good. This is the defining band of synth-pop. If you want to show anyone what synth-pop is, show them some A-ha. Also, can we talk about how awesome lead singer Morten Harket's vocals are? Very few times has a singer taken a foreign accent into his voice and made it improve the awesome sound of his voice. The most recent I can think of off the top of my head is Dan Smith of Bastille. Lastly, songs that embarrass anyone who tries to do them in karaoke are almost always awesome.
Band from central Illinois that toured with Mindless Self Indulgence in 2006. No one else sounds like them, very original unique band.V 1 Comment
These girls rock. I wish it was still 2000 when they had their peak
Endlessly creative over 30 plus albums and cited by everyone as an influence. Too few people even know who they are.
I've never seen any mention of them anywhere on this site, you'll probably know them from their hit song 'Heaven is a Halfpipe'. But the few people who actually knw of this band only do so because of this song, it's really saddening.
Timeless Grit that somehow slipped through the cracks.
Should be as known as a band like the "awesome" Helmet.
Is it too late? For a taste maybe try "Omission" or "Divorce" - LostinSonics
They are even underrated on the underrated rock bands list! They are so underrated it makes me mad. No one had ever heard of them even though their electronic albums are just as good as Aphex Twin or Knife Party! - SammySpore
This 80s & 90s band based from Birmingham made fantastic songs and need listening to! Like 'rocking' Chair', Vigilante, How far Jerusalem and Only a Memory. Such a shame that many, many people do not know these. ENORMOUSLY UNDERRATED!
Great band, but unfortunately is mostly forgotten - Shake_n_Bake13
