Best hi tech band ever
Amazing band. Even better with mark on the lyrics
Accept the best...
Where's Accept in all of this? Where are Warrior or Manowar? Moorhead... oh the humanity!
Jimmy Somerville was amazing! That voice!
I was from the MTV generation of the 80s and I grew up watching "Hit the Perfect Beat" by Bronski Beat.
They're a British Trio who were the first few ones who openly came out as gays and sang songs that reflected their sentiments.
Second concert I visited at age 18. Legend! 110? Come on!
Most distinctive sound and very basic
Deserve to be in a MUCH MUCH higher spotV 1 Comment
What a joy in comparison to all that heavy metal noise.V 1 Comment
Simply the best... Still rocking' until these days... They should be in the top list..
For people in love or who have lost love, Air Supply will always accompany them in times of heartaches and celebrations of love.
There songs are so good! Especially their lyrics!
Does Air Supply even count as music?V 3 Comments
At first they sounded speed metal like x-Japan and their drummer tetsu changed their style for the better - ronluna
George and Andrew were two guys that were perfect together to produce timeless pop songs and image. George with an amazing voice made this group one of the best and he later became the best with his own solo career.
George Michael is a very talented singer and songwriter. Underrated and should be higher on the list.
George was the best singer and songwriter then and still is now
Come on! Their t-shirts alone should put them in top 100.V 5 Comments
"Dreaming" is one of my favourite songs from O.M.D. it's not exactly their most popular since they have produced song after song of Top Ten hits in the British, Australian, Canadian and American Charts. One of their biggest hits, "Enola Gay" is named after the plane that dropped the Hiroshima Bomb in Japan in WWII. But I guess, O.M.D. is best remembered for that iconic "If You Leave" for the hit movie "Pretty in Pink"
One of the best pop groups of 80s
Best synth pop band ever. I been hearing them since end of 70s until now. Almost 45 years active...
Should be up there in the top 10 in my opinion... so many great songs. A band with a knack for the catchy melody.V 5 Comments
NEEDS TO BE IN THE TOP 20
Should be way higher ranked
amazing band. just give them a chance. listen to Sadistic desire. also if the intro to some of their songs are quiet and slow, wait a couple seconds and it will speed up to speed metal. like Kurenai and silent jealousy and rose of pain.
Should be in top 10. one of the best rap/hip hop artist everV 1 Comment
Best Hard Rock Group from the 80's. Unfortunately, they were pigeon holed with the Hairbands of early. Their music is straight up rocking blues - no fillers or manufactured music by the label! Long live TESLA!
Tesla is the best 80s band. That's a fact
123? Are u kidding me?! Tesla had some of the greatest lyrics, hard hitting yet lucid sounds. I was beginning to wonder if they were even on the list. Should be in the top 20.V 1 Comment
Musically the most talented band on this list, bar none. Could have achieved greatness
Everything they did nearly 40 years ago still sounds fresh today.
A band not happy with the commercial side of the music industry but what a live act.
Best music of the 80's by far, Sylvian a brilliant writerV 1 Comment
Working for the weekend!
.. We are all working for the weekend
By far the most original...These guys had a sound that was unique...and the songs were all about having fun...non political, great vocals by mike...awesome guitar by paul dean...
Do you play Dragon's Dogma?
She loved rock and roll. She loved chicks. We had a lot in common.
I think that Jone jett is very cool and she's awesome
WOW... 118 really... This band is fantastic! They are the epitome of an 80's band... Great music, should be top 30 at the very least!
The Fixx is very underrated. Their songs have a lot of depth and meaning
The Fixx should be in the top 25. This band had hit after hit and were very talented musicians and song writters.
