Sal Solo had one of the most unique voices in pop. Is it a Dream still resonates even now...

228 Husker Du Husker Du Hüsker Dü was an American rock band formed in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1979. The band's continual members were guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton, and drummer/vocalist Grant Hart.

The best band of the 1980's. Period! The principal influence of...The Pixies, Nirvana and Green Day to mention but a few. One of the Huskers, Bob Mould, one of the world's greatest guitar players, is known as the Godfather of Grunge. Check out Zen Arcade; New Day Rising and Flip Your Wig. All 10/10.

THE BEST! A band that should have gotten more attention.

229 The Lemonheads
230 Dexys Midnight Runners

One of the most influential bands for decades. Should be in the top ten in my opinion...

Faces was a very good album, Raise was a good album, but after that, they simply did not replicate the brilliance of the Seventies work... Easily one of the best bands EVER! Their horn work is still legendary!

Does no one listen to their music? You must all be crazy!

237 My Bloody Valentine

If the tragic live concert shooting had never happened these would have without doubt been the best 80's band ever.
