Greatest Rock Bands of the '80sisoldmysoulforrocknroll
The Contenders: Page 2
Simply the greatest band ever
Best rock band ever!
These guys aren't 80s
You should know more about them. Their last album was released in 80s. - zxm
#1 most played rock song ever- stairway to heaven. These guys deserve to be high on the list.
Along with The Cars, The Police are arguably the best 1980's band.
Such a unique sound. So much talent.
So Loooww on the list
Highly under rated band. For the 80's. Dokken should be a top ten
Whitesnake is the band that got me into the awesome world of hard rock and glam metal. It is definitely supposed to be in the top 3.
David Coverdale's vocals are second to none
Music videos made this group great in the late 80's
A great bandV 1 Comment
Powerful genre-defining garage punk. Ian Curtis.. tragic genius.. As tragically great as Kurt Cobain..
Doesn't get any better than this!
The lead vocals looks like a girl and all they're known for is the Final Countdown really. I mean sure, they have more than one hit bit one people think of the band Europe, they think of the Final Countdown
Europe had some of the best rock music of the 80's! They had so many good and catchy songs, from Superstitious to Cherokee to The Final Countdown, and so much in between! They are right behind Bon Jovi for me, and I mean RIGHT BEHIND!
They have 3 songs that anyone can tolerate what is the final countdown anyway they should not be on this list never mind being listed at 19.
Really a hardrock band for sure...V 3 Comments
These guys are up there with the Beatles
The Smiths, The Cure and U2 should be top 3. Morrissey and Marr best combo ever. So many GREAT songs in a short time. Nothing compares to The Smiths.
Morrissey & Marr... TOGETHER, I rest my case... But they are not rockers
Such a huge inspiration to many other bands after themV 1 Comment
Poison is the top band and the hottest guy in the world and they are so nice and sweet that why I love them so much and there song really move me and make me think about my life as well. there is no better band as poison cause they rock.
Poison was good but a band should be voted on by quality of music, not by the way they look.
One of my favorite bands

Peaked early and faded away
Took a page out of KISS beauty book on showmanship, One great song
45th for a rock band that was constantly touring, making records, outsold concerts every year and sold millions of records during the 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's and 2010's, come on! It's not fair! And with NO WITH NO HELP FROM THE MEDIA! Let alone the musicianship in their music, this band should and must be within the top 5!
Terrific band. Geddy Lee is the BEST high-pitch rock voice. Terrific high wattage power musical scales and riffs.
Best canadian band ever
Correction Best Band Ever!, Note: The musicianship and timeless classic works produced from these three are far and away beyond those of their contemporaries.
Rush is by far the best rock band ever. The most incredible rock trio that has stayed together and endured for most of our lifetimes.
2112 is one of the most epic albums ever and every song on Moving Pictures is a perfect hit.
How are these guys so far down the list? They were great! There is no way these guys shouldn't be in the top 10!
Best band of all time
Best Band Ever! They resurrected rock from the clutches of Disco!

Depeche Mode on a ROCK list? Don't get me wrong, I like Depeche Mode, but they're completely wrong here. Even the little text blurp calls them an "electronic and synth-pop band".
