Greatest Bands from the '80sRHCPfan
The Contenders: Page 8
Not sure whose opinion this list was... But here's mine. Pink Floyd is one of the greatest bands EVER! Lots of great bands on this list... But Pink Floyd should be #5 on any list! Thought this was an 80's list? See a lot of bands on here that came out well before the 80's?
This is a "contest" for the Eighties, not what they did in the Sixties and Seventies... This band should NEVER have reformed without Roger... Their albums without him simply were not good enough to be called PF albums! Not that they were bad, they weren't, but David was a great guitar player and vocalist, not a prolific writer!
139? Are you kidding me? Best selling album and they are 139. Who would put A ha ahead of pink Floyd? They should be top 20 at least.
Another Break On The Wall is the bestV 13 Comments
One of the best voices ever, much less in the 80'sV 1 Comment
Great band, and still fun to listen to today. Just added them to my play list last week!
An underrated but good-fun band from the 1980s. It's also what helped Norman Cook's career - pennylagwaberurier
They are better than most out thereV 1 Comment
Lost steam without Roger Hodgson during the '80's, but without doubt one of the greatest bands of all time!
Absolutely one of the greatest of their time!V 3 Comments
Relax, two tribes, the power of love. 3 great number 1s. Relax one of the biggest selling singles ever, should be at number 1, not 133
Shame on you this greatest band ever take on 127 place...
If your into the 80's this band have to be much higher in this chart.Three number ones and all the hype surrounding their classic video's.Not to be missed!
Fabulous band..surely should be MUCH higher in the rankings than this! Billy, Herts.V 5 Comments
Oingo Boingo missing from this list entirely is a travesty. Best of the up tempo post punk bands, known for their awesome Halloween concerts and Danny Elfman has gone on to greater glory scoring movies for Tim Burton and creating the theme music for the Simpsons and others.
Yes, Yes, YES! I have waited so long for someone to mention Oingo Boingo in ANY list. Why must they be overlooked by everyone? Why we they so unloved?
MY FAVORITE BAND. Very much an 80s band, but mixing synth pop, ska, punk, and jazz gives them a unique style. Listen to Insanity for an absolute masterpiece.
How is this band not higher? Love the upbeat feeling of their songs. Shame they're overlooked in almost everything.V 4 Comments

Fantastic trio, should have at least made the top 30.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
Really squeeze deserves top 10 cool for cats another nail in my heart. Cris difford was awesome at guitar also rock side was goodV 1 Comment
Slayer is a frigging classic! Should be way up higher on the last, not almost at the bottom.
Better than half the bands on this list.
Needs to be in top 30 at least! brutal, violent, heavy death/thrash metalV 1 Comment
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.
Bros is definitely one of the most talented groups during the 80's. Their talent deserves mention given the song writing, singing and voice quality of the goss brothers.
