    I think my favorite 80's hairmetal band (who are actually still together today, IIRC) is Helix. Pure awesomeness.

    No Rest for the Wicked is the only Helix album I own or have ever heard. The guy on the cover has always reminded me of RDJ.

    I loved hair metal when I was a kid. Hell, I still love it: Dokken, Great White, Poison, Skid Row, Ratt ... all mainstays on my iPod.

    There were also the one-hit-wonder hair bands:

    And classic rock bands trying to reinvent themselves as hair bands:

    80s music, esp. tracks with a prominent synth/electronic component, can awesome. If I had to pick a single track - and video - to represent 80s pop, I'd probably choose this:

    Neon wetsuits, dolphins and colourful bows on little black dresses... :cool:

    A long while back I posted tons of favourite 80s songs in an older thread. On top of all that, I was reminded of this recently:

    (Yes, they did borrow the theme from the finale of Sibelius's 5th symphony. ;))

    Reminds me of Winona Ryder. And she has a Trek connection. She played a communications officer in Star Trek IV.

    No 80s list will be complete without the King of Pop.


    Michael Jackson - Human Nature.

    There are not a lot of bands that started and finished in the 80s that I like, although many of my favourite bands and artists recorded through the 80s and beyond.

    As far as the "80s Sound" goes, one of my favourite tracks is also one of the earliest examples of that synth pop sound, it is called Same Old Scene by Roxy Music.

    • Dolly Parton, "9 to 5"
    • Billy Joel, "Uptown Girl"
    • Duran Duran, "Rio," "Save A Prayer," "The Reflex," "Union of the Snake," "New Moon On Monday," "Wild Boys."
    • U2, "With Or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "Where The Streets Have No Name"
    • The Police, "Every Breath You Take," "King of Pain," "Wrapped Around Your Finger," "Synchronicity II"
    • Big Country, "In A Big Country"
    • Peter Schilling, "Major Tom (Coming Home)"
    • Men At Work, "Down Under," "Who Could It Be Now?" "It's A Mistake"
    • Olivia Newton-John, "Physical," "Make A Move On Me"
    • Culture Club (too many to list)
    • Frankie Goes To Hollywood, "Relax"
    • Melissa Manchester, "You Should Hear How She Talks About You"
    • Air Supply, "The One That I Love"

    Here's a group most never heard of, but probably have heard the song anyway:

    And because Nancy Wilson is pretty much perfect:
