Here’s some 80s music you might enjoy
Thank god we had guys like this bucking the trend and keeping it simple, guitars and drums - albeit bloody big drums
I went through a bunch of great obsessions in the 80s:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Martha and the Muffins
So I was basically listening to WRAS, a college station in Atlanta. MTV was pretty disappointing by comparison. By the early 90’s, I think, The Replacements caved and made a music video:
Yeah I'd agree, the Human touch/Lucky town albums have a couple of good one, but it's no where near as good. I always class tunnel of love as the last great one.
Grunge arrived in the 80s. In the 90s, it was spoon fed to the same people who supported the careers of those bands you don't like the looks of. I would argue it was not improved by this.
The 80's was a strange era for music. There was a lot of bubblegum crap that, to this day, I can't figure out how they ever became hits. On the other hand, there was some pretty rockin' stuff that came out of that era but you sort of had to look for it. For me, I simply decided to live in the 50's and avoided most of the decade.... and in a lot of ways I'm still in the 50's
I’ve learned how to play a lot of blues riffs and licks learning how to play Cinderella songs. Strip away the screaming vocals and 80s production and you have some bad ass classic Les Paul through Marshall.
Oh.... C'mon @Torren61 you know you can't resist this....
Pretenders, taking heads, REM, U2, Prince, Bonnie Raitt, on and on. Lots of great music in the 80s.
Yes there was bad hair metal and MTV schlock. But in any era the “best” and “most popular” are usually two different things.
I've survived the eighties one time already.
And I don't recall them all that fondly.
The '80's, like all decades, had good music on the fringes. In the mainstream pop world some decades are worse than others. For me, it was a decade of mostly horrible synth dance music. There were good synth players, Patrick Moraz, Eddie Jobson, etc. But the bulk of that eras pop I find unlistenable, with synth patches that were poor imitations of strings/horns etc., square wave patches, (Van Halen's Jump though later, as a tone example, is a song ruined for me.) And I really love that guitar solo.
I guess i'm just not a synthpop fan.
One of my favorite things about any given decade is the music made during it. One of my least favorite things about any given decade is the music made during it.
My 80s universe was college radio, DB Recs, SST, Twin/Tone, little scenes with unheard bands playing dives all over the place, basically "our band could be your life" as D. Boon put it. It was a great time.
Lady picture show and pretty penny. Masterpieces. Celtic influence on penny. Beatles influence on lady picture show.
Zeppelin is a bloated mess with terrible vocals who stole riffs without giving credit.
Jimmy Page bought Aleister Crowley’s old house and was too much of a coward to ever sleep there.
**** Led Zeppelin.
How can people hate 80s music? Depeche Mode was from the 80s.
What?. The Police and Dire Straits? Buan Adams. Where was your head buried?
'82 wasn't that bad, otherwise, meh.
And justice for all.....
