Rick Astley wasn't a band you berk. he was a stock aitken and waterman (of Pap Idol fame!) individual, like Sonia.

Just because you were (and probably still are) a New Romantic... get that mascara off boy!

Blimey, BCalDC10! Rather a strong reaction to a little gentle teasing there (see other thread, folks), wasn't it? Big grin

I was NEVER a New Romantic, at any stage, ever.

I preferred the Cult actually in the '80's.

Unfortunately Superfly is right, that is the main reason why the 90's were that shit.

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band are of course the best thing in the 80's.

Os Paralamas do Sucesso were the very best brazilian band in the 80's, if you have a chance listen to some of their songs.

Believe it or not, the term band refers to an entire musical group credited or not. Therefore, Michael Jackson also fits into this category. How? Well someone has got to be making the music behind his voice, and those someones are probably employed by the record company.

So I say Michael Jackson, The Police, and Metalica.

Well, I was just getting on here, after giving it some serious thought, to say the Police, but seems Lehpron beat me to it. Big grin

Probable U2, which was also said, and Micheal Jackson.

And although they've been around for ever, Areosmith has made some great music in the 80's.

KROC:

"Phil Collins Genesis or Peter Gabriel Genesis Aloha?"

Both actually, the band itself is great. I have to say I do prefer the early Phil Collins Genesis, from 1978-1983, when they were still pretty much a prog rock band. Past that they seemed to lose their style and their music lost flavor.

The Gabriel era Genesis music is good, but confusing.
