The transition from the 1970s to the 1980s brought several noticeable changes in the music industry – both in the US and worldwide. We’ve managed to gather a diverse selection of music hits from the 80s to create a quiz that is both challenging and enjoyable.
Disco, which had dominated the 70s, had become diluted and popular acts had shifted to producing a more generalized form of dance music. In addition to this, the new wave genre had bust out of its underground bubble that it had occupied in the 70s. Bands like B-52, Modern English, and The Police, all produced hit new wave tracks during this decade; helping to ignite the public’s interest in the genre. The 80s were also notable for being the starting point for what is widely considered to be the “golden age of hip hop” – some popular acts from the time being: A Tribe Called Quest, The Bestie Boys, LL Cool J, N.W.A., and DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince. Rock music was without a doubt the most popular genre of the decade, with countless bands releasing nonstop hit tracks that ranged from glam metal to alternative rock.
