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
