I listen to some of those bands now, but in the 80s I mostly listened to 50s and 60s music. That's what my dad listened to so that's mostly what I would hear all the time. Now I mainly listen to much, much older music.

Genesis and the Moody Blues are misplaced. They were gaining speed on the downhill slide by the 80's.

Same argument could be made for Rush.

And ELO, and Styx.

A Duran Duran side band. Can be attributed to the existence of cocaine.

'Moody Blues' is not and was not an '80's band. Their first hit was "Go Now." 1966? 'Just sayin.'
