    I grew up in the 80's with MTV: Hair Metal and non-hair metal, Madonna, Prince, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Cyndi Lauper, Van Halen, Violent Femmes, B-52's, The Police, Genesis, Cheap Trick, Ozzy, Billy Squire... all that stuff. I love it all.
    The 80's was one big ball of pop culture. Everything started to meld together back in the MTV generation-movies, music, sports, TV. I still can't listen to Cyndi Lauper's Good Enough without thinking of The Goonies! it definitley was an enjoyable era for music.

    Just a note about metal in the 80's:
    There was "hair metal" and there was real metal. I hate how all the metal bands from the 80's get lumped into the "hair metal category", so i'm separating them into 2. I'm sure there will be some disputes but, IMO:

    Hair Metal
    Poison
    Warrant
    Winger
    White Lion
    Cinderella
    Kix
    Saigon Kick
    Trixter
    Britny Fox
    Vixen
    Dokken
    Great White
    Whitesnake
    Testament
    Ratt
    Guns n Roses
    WASP
    LA Guns


    Real metal
    Iron Maiden
    DIO
    Black Sabbath
    Scorpions
    Judas Priest
    Ozzy Osbourne
    Motley Crue- this one could go either way, they were so glam, but they still kicked ass!
    Queensryche
    Anthrax
    Exodus
    Metallica
    Megadeth
    AC/DC
    Def Leppard- again could go either way
    Motorhead

    hate to admit it , but I did then and still do dig the stuff that Rick Springfield did . Ya gotta admit he had some cool hooks ( and the cheesy videos on Mtv were just the shi-ite ) . Springfield is as 80's as it gets

    even though they only put out one album in the 80's (and an absolutely brilliant one imo), im gonna give them the nod as one of my favorite 80's bands
