Kinks, KISS and Pink Floyd: What bands belong on last episode of rock dinosaurs?

KISS/publicity photoStuck in the '80s is about to record our final episode in our ongoing Rock Dinosaurs of the '80s series. We've gone through four installments so far, and we feel one more ought to wrap things up nicely. Already on tap for this show: The Kinks, KISS and Pink Floyd.

But something's missing, isn't it? We want your help. Help us find one or two more bands to add to this final installment. Before you shower us with suggestions, here are the bands we've covered so far: 

  • The Rolling Stones
  • Jefferson Starship
  • Blue Oyster Cult
  • Supertramp
  • Beach Boys
  • Aerosmith
  • Moody Blues
  • The Jacksons
  • The Bee Gees
  • Steve Miller
  • Yes
  • Fleetwood Mac
  • The Grateful Dead
  • The Who
  • Chicago
  • The Monkees

Here is the general idea: Pick a band that really made its name in a decade PRIOR to the '80s, and yet still cranked out some notable hits and albums during our beloved decade. 

Just to be even more clear, a band like Journey, for example, did have some hits in the '70s, but their greatest success came in the '80s, so they wouldn't quality. Same argument could be made for The Cars, Talking Heads, Boston and others.

And remember: This series is for BANDS only. We'll do a separate series on solo artists, so David Bowie fans should hang tight.

Drop us a comment. Help the cause. That is all.
