could someone recommend me some 80's pop-rock. By pop-rock, I mean something along the lines of the following:

Billy Idol
Bon Jovi
David Bowie
Duran Duran
Poison
U2

Not shred, but more 80's pop-rock and hard rock I guess is what I'm looking for.

What other artists/bands should I look into?

I tried Journey in the past. Theyre good, they just didnt do it for me for some reason. IDK. Good players though.

Michael Jackson, Foreigner, Genesis, Phil Collins, Prince, Don Henley, The Cars, Dire Straits, Loverboy, Triumph, Asia, Talking Heads, Eurythmics, A Flock of Seagulls, The Outfield

Quite a lot more one-hit wonders as well

I ran my mouse pointer over a link and the pointer changed and I thought it was the grenade danger indicator from COD5 so I was trying to find a way to move away from it but couldn't, so I panicked and ran out of the room.
