They're kind of a mix of pop and rock though.

Shabooh Shoobah is a classic 80s record. Not the best title, though.

Duran Duran ruled the 80s, pop wise.

Even though they split up the full band after Live Aid in '85 and carried forward as a smaller band with far fewer hits, they still ruled the 80s, pop wise.

What about Journey ?? (doesn't anyone here remember them ??)

Steve Perry and Co. were indeed HUGE back in the 80's ... especially 1981, as the Escape tour was incredibly successful.

I think that was the tour I saw them on. Lost interest at Frontiers I believe, you know the one where they came out with the video arcade game

where does R.E.M. fit into this scheme

Alternative Rock.

IMO, of course.

Then all the 'KROQ' bands I mentioned would be there too I'd suppose. IMO, of course

I think of them as rock. When someone says "80s pop band" to me, I think hairdos, cool videos and synths.
