    Who's your favorite 80's music group?

    I don't usually announce this to the world but Depeche Mode rocks in my book. Their best album has to be Violator. When ever I listen to this album it brings back memories and on rides and it causes me to push harder...what say you MTBR?

    Favorite '80s band.... I'd have to say RHCP. I like their early stuff so much more than their newer stuff, but it's all still pretty damn good.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    Rick Astley?

    But in all seriously I really am partial to Love and Rockets. I can still listen to their albums now and not feel like I am listening to a 80's band. Similarly with Pink Floyd. Just transcends decades and the music stands on its own.

    Imagine what David Guetta will sound like in 20-30 years. Will it still seem awesome or will it just be white noise against the other pop of the teens?

    When I was in the 6th grade I was listening to the UC Santa Cruz college station and they played Night of the Living Bassheads by Public Enemy. I was forever changed. Public Enemy to this day remains my favorite group of all time.

    I was at CES one year and had the opportunity to meet Chuck D.

    Last year I went online and bought a PE zip up hoodie, because I couldn't get one when I was in the 6th grade. I still wear it and I get the bro-handshake from random older black guys on the street. It's awesome.

    One day I was in a Whole Foods, and some 19 year old hipster fixie girl with piercings and tattoos working there looked at my hoodie and asked, "....so, is that, like, a band, or something?"

    Nothing made me feel like a dorky old dude more than that!

    Dion, she is obviously an idiot to the max and has no bearing on your dork-itude. Anyone worth talking to knows the deal about PE. She probably spends all her time listening to shitty hipster music like sea and cake, Salem and other no talent non-sense.

    By this do you mean band forned in the 80s OR playing in the 80ss ?

    Music I listened to in 80s still my favorite..

    Cheap Trick, Rush, Blondie, Styx, Journey, Stones, ELO, ZZ Topp, TPATHB, Fleetwood Mac, BOC, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Deep Purple, Doobie Bros,Bad Company, Black Sabbath, BTO..you know there's way too many to mention.

    More current artists like Puddle of Mudd, Seether, Saliva, Sixx AM, Nickleback, 3 Doors Down etc etc are ok but don't nearly approach the genius of artists mentioned above. I mean songs like porn star dancing and FMLYHM are awesome and rock and all but it's not as cool as say BOC's Fear the Reaper or Blondie's Rapture.

    Wow, so many cool bands.

    Simple Minds
    INXS
    Talking Heads
    The Cars
    The Police
    Howard Jones
    B52's
    Oingo Boingo
    OMD
    Violent Femmes (all time fav of mine)

    I gotta say that The Cure and Depeche Mode really defined the 80's for me though since I was in high school at that time. Fantastic bands that hold a LOT of memories for me of those times.

    I was wondering the same thing. I just did formed close to/in the eighties and did a bulk of their work in the eighties. That's why I left out a few like Linval Thompson. He recorded in the eighties but a majority of his work was late seventies.

    I loved it when punk rock morphed into new wave. In that genre, my favorite was The Church. With The The a close 2nd behind.

    Queen!

    Even though they came out in the 70s, they were the biggest band of the 80s.

    I still could do without Flav but Chuck D is where it is at and they have always established the baseline that I judge rap with. Political, social and economic based raps always beats self aggrandizing and misogynistic rap everyday for me.

    The Reverend Horton Heat. Rockabilly keeps me moving when I get a bit slow. The Beastie Boys too.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    METALLICA!

    ...staying true to the '80's, "Kill em All", "Ride the Lightning", "Master..." and "Justice..." kicked ass. I'd list the "Black" LP too but it wasn't as edgy and was released in '91 anyway.

    Oh, and Depressed Mode - "Violator" wasn't released until March 1990....

    Ride the Lightning was one of Metallica's greatest albums in my opinion.

    The Black Album was amzing as well. Who cares if it was released in 91 though. Metallica kicks ass.

    If you want something real edgy, listen to Megadeth.

    Music from the 80's is okay, but the real music was
    made in the 60's and early 70's.

    I used to see the Rev for a $2 cover charge when he started out playing in Denton, TX. Actually, before that he was the sound guy a punk bar in Dallas. ABout the same time Edie Brickell got her start in the same clubs.

    I already did in my post...OMD. Yeah I know they are not a 'great band' but one song holds special memories for me to this day.

    I could say similar things about Adam Ant, The Stray Cats, Flock of Seagulls, Kajagoogoo. Sad but true.

    The Cult. Awesome band. If you never knew what they looked like you'd never picture the big hair type of guys. Lead singer was like a mix of Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler on stage back in the day of the Adam Ant mod- pirate look. +10

    DM and bands like The Smiths (who I loved back then) were kinda dark and dreary. Popular with kids in a kinda ****'d up place in life, which for two years I was one of. I miss that music but can't really listen to it much anymore. Just for nostalgic sake mostly.

    I'm taking it like this:

    If the band played music that I liked in the 80's, it counts...

    So for me it's waaaay too hard to pick just one. I'm a metalhead so it's a tie between:

    Ozzy Ozbourne
    Iron Maiden
    Judas Priest
    Dokken
    Dio
    Black Sabbath
    AC/DC
    Metallica
    Motley Crue
    Scorpions
    ...and there's alot more.

    BANG YOUR HEAD!!!

    Man, the Femmes were a great band. Country death song and Black Girls are still two of my favorite songs. But man, those videos look lame in the light of my old age...

    Another great 80's band: The Call.

    I spent lots of time with Slayer, Metallica, and Iron Maiden back then.

    So for me it's waaaay too hard to pick just one. I'm a metalhead so it's a tie between:

    Ozzy Ozbourne
    Iron Maiden
    Judas Priest
    Dokken
    Dio
    Black Sabbath
    AC/DC
    Metallica
    Motley Crue
    Scorpions
    ...and there's alot more.

    BANG YOUR HEAD!!!
    Now THAT´s a list i can live with!

    cant believe that king diamond/mercyful fate hasnt been mentioned with all the other hair bands from the 80s. my high school years werent complete without a metalfest.

    to think i actually wore parachute pants, and thought that i looked GOOD!...

    funny, i listen to country now, but octane (on sirius) is still my #3 favorite station.

    Without a doubt, INXS

    INXS - The One Thing (Live USA 1983) - YouTube

    INXS - New Sensation HD - YouTube

    Got to see them in Seattle, before Michael Hutchence died. Awesome concert.

    Man, in the 80's, they just snapped. awesome group.

    Living Colour

    My family went on a holiday to the USA and "Cult of Personality" was being thrashed on MTV and I loved it. Still think its an awesome guitar riff.

    I didn't think there was any good music in the 80's. Kind of a lost decade.

    Crass
    The fall
    Depeche mode
    New order ( joy division is best but Ian Curtis hung himself in 1980)
    Talking heads
    Suicidal tendencies
    Guns n roses
    The smiths
    Gg Allen
    Slayer
    Dead kennedies
    The misfits
    The cure
    The specials
    The slackers
    Tribe called quest
    Slick Rick
    Metallica before Lars and them became *****es
    Beastie boys rip mca
    Ice t
    Rakim and Erik b

    And my opinion of all the best music was 50's, 60's, and 70's in the 80's was the beginning of the end of music the 90's were not so good and have yet to hear anything past 2000 that sounds unlike a cell phone ring tone but if you think I'm to old I am only 29 also I chose bands that were at the hieghth of their careers not just because they had a song out in the 80's if that was the case the list would be way too long

    no offense, but if you sincerely think this you're not looking or trying hard enough.

    Lol finding decent post 2000 music is like finding a needle in a haystack but that is my opinion and you are entitled to yours my views are also slightly more bias as I am a audiophile and to me there is so much more
