  1. Michael Jackson or Madonna, if we’re allowing single performers.

    If we’re interpreting “band” literally, I humbly submit ZZ Top. Not only were they everywhere in the 80s in music, they also appeared in one of the decade-defining movie trilogies.

  2. hall and oates for the win!

    *edit* the rick astley answers – ayfkm? he only appeared at the very ass end of it and what he really is is a product of the stock aitken and waterman sound

  3. Van Halen, comes in as a late 70 semi experimental version of Arena rock, Perfects Synth rock in 1984, gets overly bloated and convoluted to end the decade as a slicker more polished but not as enjoyable version.
