HIDE was at his peak at the time, of course X Japan would be the best band of the 80s! Also the chemistry between the members is really strong and you as a listener get to share the same vibe with them no matter what.
X Japan's the best Japanese visual kei rock. Yoshiki's smart artist who can play a piano and a drum with together that's new change. Toshi's the best vocalist who can sing best many songs that's great.
Why does every list I see have X Japan on it? I have heard of thousands of artist/bands but had never heard of this group.V 3 Comments
Not just a perfect songwriter, Billy was a fantastic vocalist. He could easily outshine Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Prince in the "vocal" category.
Some of his brilliant 80s music: "Tell Her About It", "You May Be Right", "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me", "Uptown Girl", "An Innocent Man", "We Didn't Start the Fire", "A Matter of Trust", "Pressure", "The Longest Time", "Allentown"...
Billy Joel is one of the most talented song writters ever in my opinion, every one of his songs tells a story.
Love his work by himself and with Genesis! I love ALL Genesis, including the older stuff with Peter Gabriel and later on with Phil Collins. Phil Collins is great!
Did each song in Tarzan (1999), Brother Bear (2003) and Disney's The Legend of Tarzan. - playstationfan66
Love Phil Collins! He keeps on going and is as great as ever!V 1 Comment
Greatest Canadian band ever and where's David Bowie on the list both should make top 15

No doubt, THE BEST musicians one band has ever had - UFasten8Me

My stones roll for these guys!
One of the greatest
The best band of the 80's! Lou Gramm's voice is amazing! Look at all their hits!
Can't believe no one has mentioned them so far?
Hit "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" became one of the greatest and most memorable songs of the 80's. Belinda had a very nice voice.
Other geeat songs from that era - "Circle in the Sand", "Leave a Light On", "La Luna", "I Get Weak", "Mad About You", "Summer Rain"
I'm flabbergasted that she hasn't been put into consideration. Her perfect blend of theatre and pop music should at least be in the top 20!
Seriously talented artist great voice
She along with Peter Gabriel and few other british artists really introduced 80s characteristic sound and production (smaplers and synthetisers) that we so much love now.V 1 Comment
I love The RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS! GREATEST BAND EVER.
They are with Warner Bros. Records since 1991. - playstationfan66
The most brilliant group in history
The most unappreciated bands in Britain, one of the best live bands you'll ever see.
In my opinion they are the best electronic pop group ever, and should be in the top 5 at least of this line up.V 3 Comments
