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.
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
Wings was able to pick up the debris of the Beatles and give it new life
They were a great band in their own right. Outstandind musicians!V 1 Comment
Phil Collins - great drummer, great singer.
183, is this a joke! Genesis had sold out concerts throughout the 80s. Also some of their best selling Albums
Excellent music both solo & group (s)!
HUGE FAN!V 1 Comment
The best band you never heard. Todd's the best!V 1 Comment
Flesh and Blood was a great record and Avalon is one of the finest albums ever released. Bryan Ferry's albums Boys and Girls and Better Noire (during the Eighties) are two of the best albums ever! His '77 solo record In Your Mind is incredible as well!
May have started in the 70s but where still great in the 80s, always able to create their own style. And came into the 80s showing the kids they inspired just how things should be done, Flesh and Blood and Avalon underrated masterpieces
They should be rated higher on this list!
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"
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.
THEY WERE ALWAYS MY PRE-PARTY COLLEGE TUNES... NITECLUB JITTERS... SKYWAY... THE LEDGE
What on earth are they doing down at this ranking behind scores of utter rubbish?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
