The 80’s were a magical time for music and TV alike, a time when extravagant characters graced the screen like never before in history. In fact, the whole entertainment industry went through a veritable renaissance both culturally and creatively, casting shadows that have shaped show business into what it is today.
It was 80’s rock bands that transformed emerging new genres into art and you need only to hear some of the hits of those times to understand just how much of an impact 80’s music had not only on the development of new genres but on society as a whole. It would perhaps be best to remind ourselves of some of the best 80’s rock bands as they are undoubtedly the reason why today’s music sounds the way it does.
Metallica did things that rock bands have never done before them until that point. Their debut album ‘Kill ‘Em All’ offered the public brooding and sinister tones that were unique and thought-provoking at the time. Their songs were also popular because of how powerful and ‘pure rock’ they were, a style they’ve maintained for many years, with songs like ‘Fade to Black’, ‘Escape’, ‘Master of puppets’, and many more.
