Best Synthpop Bands of The Eighties

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Foreigner Foreigner Foreigner is a British-American hard rock band, originally formed in New York City in 1976 by veteran English musician Mick Jones and fellow Briton and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm.

A rock/pop band from the 70s, incorporating the romantic movement of the 80s!

22 Erasure

They are the definition of synthpop. Vince Clarke was an electronic music pioneer. Erasure may be the least critically acclaimed of all the bands he created, but it embodies the essence of synthpop the most.

Erasure are just amazing and are probably one of the most underrated bands in the history of pop music.

My favorite band of the 80's, I find it very surprising that they never made it that big in the United States.

My young years were made bearable they listening to my favorite duo of all time. Vince and Andy always!
