Since I grew up in the 80's, my list is a mix of those I loved and left, and ones that I've come to truly appreciate.

1. U2
2. Duran Duran
3. Inxs
4. Red Hot Chili Peppers
5. Phil Collins
6. Crowded House
7. Genesis
8. Midnight Oil
9. Michael Jackson (I had a life-size poster on my wall )
10. Bryan Adams
10.5 Echo & The Bunnymen


Edit: I completely forgot about R.E.M.! They can take Michael's spot.

Probably missing a few. Pink Floyd would have been a hell of a lot higher (number one, actually) if they all had called it quits in 1985. But no. I just couldn't bring myself to list a band that released things like A Momentary Lapse of Reason and Delicate Sound Of Thunder in the number one slot.

I can't believe LMP and I are the only ones who listed Echo And The Bunnymen.


A Momentary Lapse of Talent my dear.

There were so many bands I wish I listed, and you pretty much covered most of my Top 30.

Don't shoot me, but I got bored of their music somewhat quickly. It didn't have much staying power for me.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Well, I suppose it's different for everyone. I'm a bit tired of Crocodiles and Porcupine, but I don't think I could ever get tired of Heaven Up Here and Ocean Rain. The Killing Moon -> Seven Seas -> My Kingdom -> Ocean Rain...what a fantastic series of songs to close out an album. Ocean Rain (the song) is just so beautiful. I think that build-up at the end is as good as any classic U2 build-up!

Based on '80s output only:

1. U2
2. R.E.M.
3. Prince
4. Bruce Springsteen
5. The Police
6. The Smiths
7. The Pretenders
8. Talking Heads
9. Elvis Costello
10. Midnight Oil

Honorable mention: INXS, Kate Bush, The Clash (would have made the list, but London Calling came out in 1979), Peter Gabriel, Crowded House, Splitz Enz, the Eurythmics and the Replacements.

The '80s are so underrated musically.

Anyone who says that, really hasn't listened to The Police or music in general.
