Which band most summed up the 80s?

I think it’s The Bangles for the USA and The Smiths for the UK.

Wrong decade. Keep up.

A-ha, you fell into my trap. I meant Gilbert and Sullivan from the 1880s. :teddy_bear:

What makes you think I wasn’t referring to the 1880s without an unnecessary apostrophe?

Christ on a velocipede. How many times can I spell apostophe wrong?

The Cult.

I think The Rolling Stones are in their 80’s, does that count?

For the U.S., it would have to be Prince for me.

Indeed

To be fair, I hate Madonna too.

I failed to make myself clear. I was looking for which band caught the spirit of the 80s.

Yeah, not technically a band. Prince was just one guy, although to be fair he could play every instrument in the band.

And every band member too. :wink:

As an unusual collaboration, this is no doubt out of bounds. But it was released in the early 1980s, and I challenge any forumosan to listen to this and not remember this bassline!
