Let's hear some more from....
Help us with another question now: Give us your picks of the most underrated bands of the 1980s. Obviously U2 wouldn't make the list -- they're hardly underrated. But a band like Oingo Boingo (photo right) might make your list. Or the Hoodoo Gurus. (Those are two of my picks). Maybe even Simple Minds. Sure, they got a lot of press for "Don't You Forget About Me", but they had a slew of other great songs too that hardly anyone remembers. (Plus, they did a killer live show at Curtis Hixon Hall back in spring 1986, with The Call opening up for them.)
So share your picks for "Most Underrated Bands of the 1980s" -- and we'll get you a shoutout in a coming podcast.
