This is the singlemost superb bit of music video I've ever seen.

Bowie looks like he could hold a boombox above his head and get away with it, and Jagger does Footloose.

Thanks for reminding me of this video clip, Stan.

You're welcome Frankman, I also enjoy taking this trip down memory lane. There really was so much good music during this time, I hope it never gets forgotten and inspires musicians in the future.


Here's a band that deserves thorough representation on this thread!

Grew up in Los Angeles, after growing up in the UK...LA punk scene in the 80's..

Saw "X"..my favorite band, at least 15 times at the Whiskey-a-go-go...Saw the Ramones, and Boingo, and Adam and the fucking Ants and all the brilliant British New Wave and LA Scene people in general..

Have had a few rather deep conversations with Uncle Hank (Henry Rollins)...

Spent some time on a plane with Viggo Mortensen talking about his ex-wife and the mother of his son (Exene Cervenka!).....nice nice man..wow.


Spent a lot of time with a fake ID in clubs that are no longer there..Madam Wong's, Cathay De Grand, Flaming Collossus, Club Fuck...

Oh god......I was so fucking cool.




.......What happened?

Yeah, I'm an FA, but Annie Lennox is way hot, especially in the "Sweet Dreams" video. How does that voice come out of that woman?

GG Allin! Wow. There's a name I haven't heard in a decade. Cool. I know him as "the guy who took dumps on stage." I don't actually think I've heard any of his "music."

I can't believe no one mentioned Hated! It's a GG doc by the guy who did that movie The Hangover. Hilarious, and yeah...very gross, made right before GG died. The DVD also has his last concert (type-thing) on it, which follows him running from the police afterward, pretty amazing stuff. You have to watch through your fingers at some points, but it's a classic.

You are a survivor Arvee... and now older and wiser! That's what happened. ;) Living in the SG Valley, L.A. was a bit too far for me to get really involved in the L.A. scene other than driving in to see bands play. I saw the OC bands more because they played often at Cal State Fullerton where I went to school. Good times, good memories!


Here are a couple more bands I thought of. First a San Francisco band The Avengers which I remembered dedicating a song to Mr. Swamptoad on the song dedication thread. The other band Agent Orange is a well known band from Orange County, which I saw play at CSUF back in my college days.



The Avengers

I'll count Blondie as punk, they later went New Wave. Love the Clash, hated the Sex Pistols.

Does Culture Club count?

my fav 80's sounding song is 99 luftballons by nena because it captures the whole cold war anti-soviet feeling.


i think the most prolific band in the 80's was the cure. 8 albums + 1 ep in 10 years and some epic stuff.
