    I didn't like the 80s. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to apologize. I couldn't wait for that decade to be over. YES was crap. Zeppelin was done. Punk rock? Crap (imo). I remember walking across the living room and "Sex Type Thing" debuted on MTV and I literally stopped in my tracks. FINALLY!!! Rock was back!!!

    Ummm, yeah. I had the radio off for over 15 years. Can you spell, “Twisted Sister”? So sorry.

    I used to hate 80s music - some of it was really, really cheesy. But now I find the 80s stuff more unique and memorable - 90s music is just not that memorable to me.

    There was an '80s that I liked, but it was a lot different from what most people think of as '80s.

    Well, I guess that smells like teen spirit.

    That's a great rockin' song. I used to play one of the early Gran Turismo video games which featured it all the time!

    It would have been better for the continued evolution of mankind if a strange malady had infected every recording device on earth in or around 1978 rendering them nonfunctional. This would have precluded Rapper's Delight ever having been recorded and released circa 1979 which would have meant the world would now be a better place. No matter what we might of missed in no longer being able to make recordings, this would have been an acceptable trade off for the good of mankind.

    STP, the greatest band that could have been. It seriously breaks my heart about Stone Temple Pilots. They were a great band. They had the entire package, (fu David Spade). They had a solid band and a frontman that was mesmerizing. I saw them on the "Purple" tour and again at a college.

    The "Purple" concert was at the Riverport Amphitheater and I could not take my eyes off of Scott Weiland. He was dynamic. He COMMANDED attention. There was not a flubbed note nor a missed cue. It was perfect.

    Weiland's addiction is what killed the band. They could have been so much more. When I watch some of their videos, it's heart wrenching to know what is to come in their future. Weiland is, imo, one of the greatest singers in Rock. He could do it all.

    Dean DeLeo is, imo, one of the greatest guitar players in Rock. This fellow covers DeLeo's guitar lick very well.

    I was still deep into Cosmic Country and morphing into reggae in the 80s. Mainstream “rock” was not on my radar.

    Hair bands aside, I think there was some terrific music in the Eighties. Quirky, different, memorable pop songs. Some great bands like the Police ...
    But, man, I really hated the hairspray guys.

    This was a pretty cool part of the 80s.

    The 80's in Oz was a golden era for local bands/music, so much going on...:)

    I had a great time through the 80's, :)

    This came out in ‘91.
    We were firmly subjected to hair metal throughout the end of the decade.
