Hey guys, I'm currently going through a phase where all I want to listen to is seriously cheesy 80s pop/rock. So does anyone have any recommendations? I've got some Journey and Starship already.

Any suggestions? Ta Muchly

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

Get into New Wave. I love it.

Devo, Oingo Boingo, The B-52s and Talking Heads.

what about Kansas? No clue when they're from, but it's all great music and sounds a bit like The Final Countdown in terms of effects on most songs.

Van Halen-Van Halen (album)
Winger-Winger (album) (listen to seventeen and madalaine)
Twisted Sister- Stay Hungry (album)
Whitesnake- ANY
Warrant- Hole in my wall, machine gun, etc.
Slaughter- Stick it to Ya (listen to Fly to the Angels and burning bridges)
White Lion- Wait, Tell me, the road to valhalla
Skid Row- Skid Row (album) (listen to I remember you, 18 and life and youth gone wild)
Ratt- Lay it down, Round and Round, Way Cool Jr., Back for more, Lack of Communication, Back for More, Dead Reckoning, and All the Way
Poison- Every Rose has its thorn, Talk dirty to me, I want action, Nothin but a good time
Dokken- Breaking the Chains, Paris is burning, Into the fire, In my dreams, Mr. Scary (instrumental), Live to rock rock to live


I hope I helped, The 80s are my favorite, no matter how cheesy they may be. I suggest Dokken probably above almost all of those. Tell me if you want more.

EDIT: I forgot Def Leppard, Theyre great. Listn to the albums Hysteria, Pyromania, and Euphoria, the newer ones are all too much of pop for me. Also the new Songs from the sparkle lounge is great too

I hate trying to cover up my cheese in school because the bimbo next to me dislikes the smell of pure love.

There's a few cheesy songs on there, but it's a great rockin album.
