    Probably my favorite decade of music. So many bands, songs that influenced me growing up in Southern California. I was lucky to see many bands in my youth because of my location. To this day I am actively seeing bands that I missed during my early years (recently saw an X concert). Post your favorite song or band from the 80's.

    My two favourite songs of all time

    Burning Inside by Ministry



    Junkdrome by Front 242 - You need to get about 2m 20s in before it starts to kick off properly. Intro is long but quite ambient.

    I have seen X so many times, I lost count. I try to see them whenever they play locally.

    Does the OC stand for Orange County? If so, finally someone from my neck of the woods!! Sadly I do not have a copy of DWC :(

    Just got 4 tickets to see "The Cult" @ House of Blues in Anaheim :) Ian is the man.

    X was a big part of my record (yes, record) collection. Even if I lived on the East Coast.

    Dire Straits
