Well the 80's were the worst decade for music I can hear. Im sure the Black Plauge years in europe turned out some ****ty tunes, but the 80's was a decade full of novelty. Forgive me if I glance over that entire abboration in taste.

Secondly, I agree with REM being bigger, I think U2 was bigger as well, and im sure there was another one im forgetting.

I'd invest in a hearing aid. The 80s were amazing.

80 had some good indie, electro-rock going on. i liked the 2-tone movement aswell. but ive always said, the hair metal scene always tarnishes my view of the 80s, i tend to forget about the pluses. good bands though.

Fair enough, but its not just hair metal, I wasn't speaking blindly when i said there were novelty acts abound. The hard part is making an argument when you can't remember their names. Aside from my own rememberence of what horrors existed then, if you've ever caught "I love the 80's" on VH1, then you would know what I meant. Songs about convoys and something with donald duck, im sure there was a packman song. Micky you're so fine, whatever the Knack wrote.

As I've said, I can't conjure every crap song that they dished out then, but the fact is that the 80's was inundated with garbage.

id agree with 3/4 of those bands being good. husker du barely make the standard needed to be seen as acceptable in my view.
