What is your favorite music band/group/artist/rapper/ect. from the 80's?
How about the 90's
...and why

I'll start

80's= Iron Maiden: I dug them as a kid and still do, their music brings back fond memories and Scifi Fantasies

90's= Mr Bungle: I'm a huge Mike Patton fan and think he made the most unique and creative music with the guys of Mr Bungle, especially 95's Disco Violante

      I can't really think of a #1 fave from the 80s. From the 90s I have to say No Doubt.

                    Many of the bands here have already been mentioned. I was all over the place at that time.

                    Is it just me and my nostalgia or were the early 90's one of the best and most diverse musical times? Then again I was kid...but I'll give you some examples here....Dr.Dre and Snoop (Good Hard Rap), Kriss-Kross (Good Fun rap), Salt-N-Pepa (Good Female Rap), BoyZ to men, there was good techno and dance songs, great rock, awesome ballads, and different types of music. Even the music for "grown-ups" was good.

                    I heard a couple of days ago "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum at the mall and I was shocked, they never play that song anywhere. I remember the video made me cry.

                    It just seemed that there was a lot of good variety in the early 90's, but maybe it's just me.
