I never did hold with the idea that the 80's sucked, like any other era they had the Good, the Bad and the Butt Ugly as well...

Some absolute Pealers in those lists I have quite a few of them in the library.

Exclamation Re: Top 100 rock songs of the 80's

Who compiled those lists? Sales don't seem to have been much of an influence on whoever did so,
