That's all good, Winter, but you seem to have a genre-specific memory.
EDIT: Or rather genre-exclusive.

The only good bands from the 80's were Maiden, Crue and Queensrchye. I would put skid row on there but they kinda got lost between the 80s and 90's as they came out just when hair metal died.


There were so many more than just that, you even mentioned one in an earlier post, Smashing Pumpkins, then there's, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Violent Femmes, R.E.M., The Pixies, there are more, but those were what I could think of off the top of my head.


Duran Duran, The Alan Parsons Project, Split Enz, Crowded House, Men At Work, Van Halen, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, A Flock of Seagulls, Poison, Warrant, Scorpions, Arcadia, Power Station, Styx, Night Ranger, Depeche Mode, The Police, Pet Shop Boys, Yaz(oo), Peter Gabriel, Sammy Hagar, The Bangles, The Go-Gos, The Smiths, T'Pau, Blue Oyster Cult, Scandal, Quiet Riot, REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, Beastie Boys, Adam Ant, Loverboy, Berlin, Naked Eyes, Thomas Dolby, Thompson Twins, Oingo Boingo, The Boomtown Rats, Falco, Animotion, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Men Without Hats, The Stray Cats, The Romantics, Wang Chung, Queen, Billy Idol, Wham!, Michael Jackson, Samantha Fox, Rick Astley, Madonna, Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham, Kiss, Information Society, Erasure, Electric Light Orchestra, A-Ha...


Thank you Winter.

It was very impressive off-the-cuff, though.

Judging by the year in your username, I'd hope you'd have some appreciation for 80's rock.

Hell, AC/DC and Black Sabbath were both feature in Iron Man/ Avengers, and I don't think that hurt Marvel's sales at all.



Fun fact, the song Iron Man by Black Sabbath has nothing to do with the marvel comics at all, it's all a popular misconception.

The song Iron Man is about a bloke who was turned to steel while travling time, people don't care about him, even after he saved them, they generally act as though he is literally a statue, so he plans his vengeance against the world and starts to kill everyone.


Which is all well and good, but Iron Man is used in the first Iron Man film.

I was too, but apparently I heard a lot more metal and punk. You had a couple years on me, so I was still influenced by friend's older brothers.

Yet not a single mention of Japan, Alphaville, A-ha (Hunting High and Low was good at least) or Spandau Ballet! That I can recall anyway. I was born in '91 but I'm a massive New Wave fan. Still love you though Winter! I would add more to your list but sadly I'm at work!

Just saw A-ha was on there. In that case I'll replace it with Talk Talk. ;)

Phil Collins is the man. So many hits. Pseudio and easy lover are to of the best


I always felt he was a very underrated drummer, as well. Then again, I myself am a drummer, so...
