141 The Human League

Love this band. One of the greatest eighties bands. All I can say is "don't' you want me baby"

Why is this 142! They should be in the Top Ten, as should Depeche Mode! Music legends, still going strong and sounding and looking amazing!

Really influential need to be top 20

What's poor Human League done to be down here...
One of the major pop bands of the 80,s

144 Supertramp

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!

145 The Housemartins

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 there

Great Band!

149 Yazoo

Great band, and still fun to listen to today. Just added them to my play list last week!

150 Marc-Almond

Still sounds great live toady.

I love Marc almond, please come to West Country, loving yr new album especially the god one and I'm not religious! X

One of the greatest perfomers of the 8os! A dramatic theatrical voice,music for few

151 Infected Mushroom Infected Mushroom
152 Oingo Boingo

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.

153 Curiosity Killed the Cat

I loved this band and I can not find any of there songs to this day.

Look them up on youtube, I just did and I was able to find them

154 Michael Learns to Rock

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!

156 The Psychedelic Furs

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!
