Greatest Bands from the '80sRHCPfan
The Contenders: Page 9
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 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
Platinum Blonde continues to perform new music at every concert! They are sitting comfortably in the new music scene and THEY ROCK!V 1 Comment
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
The best band you never heard. Todd's the best!V 1 Comment
One of the most underrated rock bands.. Great melodic sound. Great vocals and talented song writing...
Y&T is the most underrated hard rock band! Dave Meniketti not only can sing any type of song, but is sorely overlooked when it comes to lead guitarists. Y&T never disappoints live!
THE most underrated Rock band! Dave Meniketti's voice is like no others. Very talented guitarist...and just a straight forward hell of a nice guy! Talk about a band that actually cares about their fans! Top of my list when I think of "Top 80's bands"
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
They had a huge blockbuster in "Your Wildest Dreams", followed by "I Know You're Out There Somewhere". Some of the other bands listed opened for the Moodies back then. They lead the pack in musical style, sticking to their own sound. Formed in 1966 they are still going strong with touring and Justin is putting out a new solo album this month, Feb 26, 2013. There aren't many bands that can claim a number one album/song in so many decades.
Four words "Knights in white satin" enough said.
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
What ever happened to them iconic
The music of Big Country is quite good if you give it a fair chance. Steel town is the greatest record ever presse
The unique guitar riffs the militry drumming the amazing lyrics how are these not listed? My favorite 80's BandV 2 Comments
