Big hair, long tongues, amazing guitar riffs and very, very, VERY awkward music videos.
That sentence might not totally sum up music in 80s - but it comes close.
How about these classic music videos that were huge back then but are just a bit...uncomfortable now:
Pat Benatar- Love is a Battlefield
A story of a girl who runs away from to do 80s dance moves in a club? Yes please:
Styx - Mr Roboto
This is what people thought the robots would be like in the future, and there's not one mention of Siri anywhere!
Twisted Sister - We're Not Going To Take It
How do you fix family issues and an overbearing father? With Rock 'n Roll of course!
Poison - Talk Dirty to Me
Music videos like this one were considered edgy - to the point where some wanted it banned completely - but it seems quite tame.
REO Speedwagon - Keep On Loving You
The first 30 seconds of this video proves that no 80s pop star should have EVER acted:
Just because these music videos are quite awkward, doesn't mean that you shouldn't enjoy the actual music! You can still get all the rock, the glam and insane guitar riffs of these great tracks in way that's 100% awesome and 0% awkward with Rock of Ages - the feel good rock musical that showing at Gold Reef City!
