My favourite band there is the one who split up first so we didn't have to hear any more of their music. I guess I don't mind 2 or 3 songs from Loverboy and Outfield, but the rest should be stabbed.

:rofl2: Here he goes again !!

 

But I agree to the bands Geoff mentioned. Loverboy and The Outfield are definitely my faves, and I am adding Simply Red. INXS and Mr. Mister had a few good tunes, too.

I've had a crush on Pat Benatar since I was 11 years old (:wub:) and I love Kim Wilde's "Kids In America" but the rest of that list... nah.

 

Isn't there a rule against mentioning Men At Work on a hard rock message board? If not, there should be...

Here we go with that "label" thing again.

 

I'm not even sure you can mention Loverboy and Benatar with the likes of Simply Red and Men at Work.

 

I must admit... there are a few on that list that I "could" listen to.... the two mentioned above along with the Outfield & the Knack.

 

Though I hate "labels" with a passion... I consider Flock of Seagulls and bands like them to be more "80's pop" then many on the list above.

 

I know... it's his thread.... :)

Some of them are on the main site. How do you 'splain that?

I'd explain by slowly edging my way towards the door.

Does anybody remember the famous photo of a marquee outside a concert hall when The Hooters opened for Squeeze in the mid-80s, that said "SQUEEZE HOOTERS TONIGHT $14.95?" I betcha that gig sold out quickly. :)

Mr. Mister - Kyrie is an excellent song.

Huey Lewis had some cool pop songs.

The Outfield are cool.

INXS are cooler.

Loverboy are an excellent band.

Pat Benatar has some great songs.

The rest I can do without.

Other than the fact that they were from the '80s, I would love to know how the Dead Kennedys got on this list ... as I don't understand what they have in common with any of the other bands... :blink:

 

Though I gotta admit, a Dead Kennedys/Loverboy/Mr. Mister concert would've been a helluva combo :beerbang:

do Duran Duran count as 80s pop rock? i like them...

 

Yea, they do... and dammit, I hate to admit it but I kinda like some of their stuff. Heard "Ordinary World" on the radio the other day and was like "Wow, this is a great track..."

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
