Top 10 New Wave GroupsShinnypoo These are the best new wave groups. This is mainly soft rock with some smooth guitar and piano parts. The drummers don't go crazy they just keep the beat, which is all they are supposed to do.
The Top TenXW
Ok... besides the Killers, NONE OF THESE BANDS ARE NEW WAVE. what?!?! THE Beatles?!?!? God this is SO messed up. What about Depeche Mode? The Cure? SOMETHING ACTUALLY NEW WAVE? I feel like all of these lists are voted by people who don't know what they're talking about.
new wave has been here since the 70s... love the killers and the peppers - Flyingcobra

Wow, second place. Totally should be first, but every band on this list is really good. So much better than the music now, I can't even listen to 2000's 1st century music without the fear of my ears bleeding - invinciblemario99

New Wave would not be as well known as it is without the Talking Heads. David Byrne's antics, Tina Weymouth's solid bass playing, Chris Frantz's drumming, and Jerry Harrison's licks defined the sound of the Talking Heads. Albums like Talking Heads 77, More Songs about Buildings and Food, Fear of Music, Remain in Light, and Speaking in Tongues helped to shape New Wave like never before. The live album/movie Stop Making Sense allows the listener to give their own view on the Talking Heads' shows. - c0mf0rta61ynum6
They are so much better than The Killers! Seriously, people? - Pony
This band is like the opposite of New Wave - Erucu
The Cars are one of the grandaddys of New Wave. Why Red Hot Chili Peppers is even on here, I don't even know... They aren't even New Wave
They made "Marquee Moon". Need I say more? - Pony
They have made new wave popular in todays society and given it a name and unique identity. They are a modern day version of the kingsmen, or what I imagine the kingsmen would be like today. Their edgy style make listening to a song of their's great.
Laugh out loud why is A-ha not here? Come on guys they so many good song they have to be here!
I have been listening to The Shins since I was little, they have a song for everyone. I highly recommend you listen! They have touched me with their music unlike any other band. Love The Shins!V1 Comment
They are a soft band that is very strong as one. whatever song you like of theirs is so good that it keeps repeating in your head!
