Greatest Rock Band of all time!
Classic British rock. Loads of bands after them were influenced by them.
I love the who. Best band of all time
Great rock band for 50yrs!V 1 Comment
Had Two Killer Albums in the 80's...Their Debut "Night Songs" and Follow up "Long Cold Winter" with Both Albums Cracking the Top 10 in the Billboard 200..and combining to produce 3 Top 20 Singles...
Killer songs like nobody's fool, Somebody save me, Gypsy road, and lots more. They should be in at least the top 15. I am a huge fan of old school rock and roll and I am only 13 years old and this is my second favorite band.
Tom Keifer is one of the most talented musicians ever! Look at all the different instruments he can play! Add in his beautiful voice & absolutely gorgeous face. This band is in my top ten of all time!
How in the world are they in 57th place? This is the best 80s band in the world. Tom keifer is the best vocalist I've ever heard.V 4 Comments
Warrant has so many good songs! So disappointed that its not in the top 10
Great band... listening to Dog Eat Dog now... Still holds up after 20+ years!V 1 Comment
Debbie harry was talented and beautiful
Because they were more of a 70s band than an 80s band?V 3 Comments
The best glam metal band platinum and gold albums and just plain rock/metal awesomeness
Different - Rock/Metal and Christian
In God We Trust was pretty much the final chord in 80s music.
Sadly, I didn't hear much of them until later.
I was born in 82' so I obviously wasn't into the music scene enough to know if they ever received enough credit, but "Maria" is without a doubt one of my favorite songs. I have their greatest hits, I know snobs hate me all you want, but it's all amazing (like almost Paul Simon's Graceland good). I can't say that for all of my greatest hits compilations.
So much better than what is viewed I don't know what is up with this list. "Who can it be- now" has an amazing tenor sax and it is just a good band over all they should at least be in top 15 in my opinion.
Great Australian band and definitely should be given some more credit for their work!
Love themV 7 Comments
Amazing band, many great songs. They are a great inspiration to other heavy metal bands. They truly should be one of the top 10 because of the quality and effort that you can easily tell they put into their songs. You can tell that they really believe in what they sing, and what their lead singer Dee Snider writes.
One of best rock bands ever!
They Are Sing About The Truth Too And They Keep It Raw
Twisted F'ing Sister rules! I'm a SMF!V 2 Comments

Cheap Trick, to me, was the most underrated rock bands of the 80's
No doubt they were and are still underrated!
I'm 63 and still like to crank it up in my car with these guys. Their music sounds just as good as it did 30 years ago.
Still love themV 3 Comments
Pioneers of rocks of all decades. Nothing beats Perfect Stranger album...
How did they get here? David's in whitesnake
They did perfect strangers with the best and most popular line-up, which doesn't include David Coverdale... - RalphSaad
219 is a travesty. Ronnie James Dio the man that brought you horns up. One of the greatest bands in heavy metal.
Adam was my first love. What an amazing and truly original sound the Ants had, those drums were just astonishing. I learned so much from the songs about art, sex, tribes, pirates and the list goes on. Adam was all about style and somehow fused punk and the new romantics effortlessly. A true one off.
The Man Is A Legend... His Fans Are 2nd To None!...
& He Has Worked His Socks Off With Tour After Tour For The Last Few Years...
It's A Heck Of A Lot To Deal With When You Have An Illness Like Adam's...
Here's To A Legend Who Has Brought So Much Happiness To His Fans... Young & Old-ish...
Adam is One of the most unique & individual artist I have ever seen, then & still is now. I have never seen an artist like him. Exciting to listen to & even more exciting to watch. A one of a kind.
There awesome! stand and deleiver!V 17 Comments
How did the B52's not get on the list they were awesome!
Finally I find the best new wave band!
The best beach-rock party group ever!
Underrated. B52 still give me a big smile. Love shack, baby!V 6 Comments
Love David Coverdale and Is this love
At least a top 20 band from the 80's
It in top ten idiots
How did they get here?V 3 Comments
What about Toto? Why on earth is Toto not of the first ten rock bands?! They are one of the most extraordinary rock bands of the 80's that ever existed! They are perfect! I like almost every song of them. I swear that I have heard them even before I was born! They are extraordinary!
Africa, Hold the Line, 99, Rosanna, Stop Loving You, and home of the brave are their best.
Toto only 899 th what should be in the top 40
Simply the best.V 10 Comments
Listening to this group so takes me back to high school and cruising around in my '76 Camaro with the volume cranked up as high as it would go. I loved them then and still do. Brad Delp had such an awesome voice.
You know a band is good when you can listen to their songs over and over and never get tired of hearing it. Tom scholz is the greatest songwriter of all time. They had the most unique sound of any band ever. Also, you will never see a more perfect afro than sib hashian's.R.I. P brad.
Although they first hit big at the end of the 70s they average out as an awesome early to mid 80s guitar rock phenomenon.
Boston are a fantastic group, love there music.V 5 Comments
Chrissy Hynde is one of the finest songwriters EVER... Also vocalists! Her bands were always honest players who helped to her songs the "edge" they deserved! Learning to Crawl is one of the finest albums ever released! She never released anything but great albums!
My God people if the Pretender's are not here I don't know what to say.
This is one of the main influences for bands like Nirvana and My Bloody Valentine
Why isn't Sonic Youth in the top ten, what the hell?V 1 Comment
