80s Indie Music

I recently heard a journalist talk about how interesting music in the 80s was nearly non-existent. My hackles went up! I could name a dozen more bands, not including some more mainstream music like the police that were interesting.

The Feelies: Crazy Rhythms 1980


B-52s: Wild Planet 1980


Siouxsie and the Banshees 1981


Black Flag: Damaged 1981


X: Wild Gift 1981


The Salvation Army: Mind Gardens 1982


REM: Murmur 1983


The Smiths 1984


The Minutemen: Double Nickles on a Dime: 1984


Sonic Youth: Evol 1985


Husker Du: Candy Apple Grey 1986


Dinosaur Jr: You're Living All Over Me 1987


The Pixies: Surfer Rosa 1988


Sonic Youth: Daydream Nation 1988
