Hello All,

I am a child of the 80s. However, I don't want to revisit the 80s through some TV shows or movies.

No, for me it is the music. Particularly New Wave music. 

As a kid listening to and watching all those New Wave music videos were fun to me. I mean the beats were all fun and the crazy fashions too.

I guess that I can ask everybody, who is your favorite New Wave band of the 1980s?

I agree that some mentioned, including my own, might not be the total definition of 'new wave' but they were still not mainstreamy. They were, however, def from the 80s :)<br />
<br />
How 'bout: Missing Persons, Pop Will Eat Itself, Kon Kan, Bronski Beat..

There were some bands that weren't New Wave that you might consider New Wave. I know that some of the Punk ones are. Besides, New Wave and Punk came from the same place.<br />
<br />
And there is another band that I am thinking of that some might not consider as New Wave. They are the Police.

Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Echo and the Bunnymen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Damned, Ministry, Culture Club, Duran Duran, Gene Loves Jezebel...<br />
<br />
Too many, too many and I miss them..

I am the same way. I am going to ask another question in this group too. But I would rather wait until I get lots of responses to my question.

New Order, Simple Minds, Duran Duran, the Cure,,, I could go on! Love em forever!!
