Are we not men? Why on earth is this band not at the top of the list? Nothing says the 80's like the spuds!
Best concert I've ever been to.
It's a wonderful world for you
First concert I visited at age 18. Strange, special, unforgotten.
Heading for Venus (Venus), but still we stand tall!

This band should definitely be placed in top 10 along with New Order!
They are so cool
This is an amazing band. Even today their songs are extremely famous in the world. I loved 'The Actor' and 'Sleeping Child'. They bring back sweet memories for me!V 1 Comment
The sexiest voice of the eighties! And hey, I bet this is an American-based list? Europe fans would have this sort of up-side down sirs:-) I haven't even seen the Style Councils yet... Without doubt one of the greatest of the Eighties!V 2 Comments
Should have been no1 lexicon of love what a classic album still sounds great,
This ladies were awesome in the 80's and I am still listening to their music.
Loved these girls and still do today
Very catchy songs,should be much higher,still going strong,timeless songs.
"Why Me? "
When I see my favourite bands on rock bottom I realise how my taste for music must be so bad, unbelievable!
First record I bought, age 15. Still have it.
Still one of the best bands during the '80's... The brilliance of Parson's ideas and Production along with Eric Woolfson's lyrics and their incredible band of musicians made them one of the greatest bands ever! Turn of a Friendly Card and Eye in the Sky are two of the best Rock albums ever, and Ammonia Avenue was great... With Vulture Culture, Stereotomy and Gaudi still very good albums! The lyrics went very deep to heart of the Matrix that exists all around us... A very intelligent band!V 1 Comment
I'm glad the stone roses are on this list, even if they are down at 225. Their debut album released in 1989 is one of the best debit albums of my time in my opinion, and all the songs on it (besides Elizabeth my dear its not even a minute long) have the potential to be hits, and 'I Am the Resurrection' alone is a monster of a track. Add 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'Made of Stone', 'Waterfall' and 'She Bangs the Drums' and we have a great album. oh yeah, I'm from America too.
Still listen to this fantastic Manchester band. Fab music.
They should be a lot higher. I think that their debut is one of the best albums of all time! Great musicians, especially the bassist (Mani) and drummer (Reni).
Tight musicality and great trail blazing for the likes of Gwen Stefani and Lady Ga-Ga!
Dale Bozzio is still delivering a great show in 2015...They are coming back!
Who could forget "Sex" and "Pleasure Victim"?
This is my favorite Secular Band11
One of a very very small number of the bands on this list that actually belong on this list.
Wrote one of the best punk rock albums of all time with double nickels on the dime, should be top ten for sure.
This list is a travesty if this band isn't at least in the top ten. Anyone who knows music knows Let It Be, Tim, and Pleased to Meet Me are as good as anything The Beatles or Zeppelin did.
Literally is a crime to put bands like Huey Lewis and the news before a band as great as the replacements. Should be #1 then the pixies, and then sonic youth.
What a joke, they should be in the top ten, anyone who doesn't think so doesn't have ears
Not even close. Best band of the '80's by a long shot.V 1 Comment
