This decade was very influential on every genre. Well known artists such as Guns N’ Roses, Dire Straits, The Cure, Madonna, Prince, Queen, Bruce Springsteen, Iron Maiden and Metallica, created some of their best work and made it all the way through to the top charts.
Michael Jackson’s Thriller was considered and still is one of the best-selling albums ever made. Thriller, is the video with the highest budget in the music industry. He became the most succesful artist of the 80’s.
The late 80’s were the opening for succesful comebacks from bands like Aerosmith or Alice Cooper, which started in the 70’s. Some bands were getting started, others were at the top of their game and others couldn’t make it, but overall, the 80’s were the best years for most of the artists we now call music legends.
