Greatest Bands from the '80sRHCPfan
The Contenders: Page 4
Although relatively plastic as a band, the music has lived on well beyond any other bands of this nature. Top 100 of the era for sure
Still listen to their music now they are brilliant.V 2 Comments
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
Loved annie's powerful voice along with dave's musical rhythm. I love sweet dreams (are made of this).
I love this band! My parents played it when I was a kid and I loved it ever since. My favorite song that the produced is Sweet Dreams.
There videos were real art. Annie lennox always looked stupendously good
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
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.
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
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!
Yess I finally see them! Down under is a good songV 6 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

Love the retro music..
Just fun fun fun. LOVE!
Every their song is full of emotions and different than another, their music is so delight and special... THEY'RE BESTV 1 Comment
Best group in the 80s by a bleeding mile
There's some band called Cinderella at number 30! Never heard of them! MADNESS are THE band of the 80's, National Treasures entertaining the British public since 1979... and still making new albums with all seven original members! LEGENDS
How on earth are Madness this low down the list? Biggest selling singles band of the 80's (and they were only around for just over half the decade! ) - hit after hit after hit - don't think they should be top but they should be well above a lot of the bland MOR/AOR that appears higher in this list
This is the greatest band of all time.V 62 Comments
Cheap Trick, to me, was the most underrated rock bands of the 80's
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.
No doubt they were and are still underrated!V 2 Comments
This band should definitely be placed in top 10 along with New Order!V 1 Comment
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
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
