Alright, laugh at me, I don't care.

I mostly listen to 60's and 70's. I am starting to branch out to 80's.
I say 80's because I'm not sure.

Velvet Underground, David Bowie, Charlie Sexton, Arc Angels, Bon Jovi, and those guys who sing "Rainbow in the Dark". Those guys are 80's right?

If not, what genre would that be?

But if they are 80's, recommend me some bands along those lines ^.

Dio performs "Rainbow in the Dark" and the album Holy Diver (witch it is on) came out in like '83. Call em 80's or metal i guess.

As for Bowie. His discography goes from like the late sixties to his last in '03 i think.

Bon Jovi is definately 80's tho.

One of the best solo's Rainbow in the Dark has imo.

Bon Jovi are still around but their first 4 albums were all 80's hair metal.

Velvet Underground are sorta 70's. Bon Jovi's 'Bad Medicine' was definitely one of the 80's anthems. So was 'Livin on a Prayer.'

The Velvet Underground were from the late '60s and early '70s, but listen to them anyway. They're great.

I'd consider any band that came out, was signed or had their most influential albums during the 1980s to be an "eighties" band, and those would for the most part fit that. I suppose 80s bands would be more along the hair metal line, that or some kind of electronica group.
