Top 10 Alternative Bands of the 1980s

The 1980s saw bands come out of the underground, add electronic elements to their sound and pave the way for the alternative rock explosion of the 1990s. For this list, we’ve chosen influential artists who helped define the alternative sound and genre in the 1980s, who were commercially successful and whose music stood the test of time. This is part of a series of videos spanning the decades of alternative rock music from the 1970s to the 2000s, and includes our lists of the Top 10 Alternative Bands of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as well as the Top 10 Punk Bands and Top 10 Grunge Bands. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 alternative bands of the 1980s.
