Remember that famous dance band from the '80s? Blue Oyster Cult!



The '80s were for dancing. In song title form, '80s Nation was dancing in the streets, in the sheets, on the ceiling, in heaven and Billy Idol was fine with dancing all by his lonesome. We were so much dancing fools that we even danced in the oddest of places as Blue Oyster Cult found with Dancin' In The Ruins.

A common misconception is that Blue Oyster Cult is just a '70s band, but this is their third appearance on Lost And Found and late in 1985 their fourth album of the '80s produced the Top 10 Mainstream Rock Track Dancin' In The Ruins.  

The video for Dancin' In The Ruins is about the underground skateboard world as BOC is the house band in a video that has a similar dark style to the movie The Lost Boys that would come out several years later. All though the only skateboarder I can name is Tony Hawk, the video for Dancin' In The Ruins supposedly contains some of the best skateboarders of the day.
