    You doing Diver Down or you just putting Van Halen off until 1984?

    Yeah I'll do Diver Down, I'm doing all the Roth Halen albums, and maybe doing the first Van Hagar one, though that's totally forfeit if I think of anything better for 85'.

    The first Van Hagar album honestly isn't so bad ('Dreams' is completely badass.)

    Judging by how it's going so far I can't wait to go around telling people the 80's is my favorite decade for rock lol.
    Just imagine how much you'll love the 80s if you can get into extreme metal, haha.

    Damn man, if only you were doing a country list, some good shit came out that year. George Strait, Alabama, Waylon Jennings, goddamn.

    -Beat it
    -Karma Chameleon
    -The Reflex
    -Let's Dance
    -Every Breath You Take
    -Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)
    -Metal Health
    -Sharp Dressed Man
    -Uptown Girl
    -Owner of a Lonely Heart
    -Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)
    -Mr. Roboto
    -I Want a New Drug

    Oh, and not to mention the debut of Weird Al Yankovic. You should be in for a real treat MK.

    This is also the year of Holy Diver, Pyromania, another great Alabama record, and one of the better 80's Johnny Cash albums (It's got a real nice Bruce Springsteen cover.)

    Good coverage of 83. I knew you would like Plastic Surgery Disasters more. I'm with you, the writing on there is so much more solid than Fresh Fruit's. I'm really enjoying your punk coverage in general. It's a really misunderstood genre, so it's really great to see you diving in at the right points and and clearing up some misconceptions. I hope you do some amount of emo coverage in the future (Rites of Spring, Moss Icon, Gray Matter, Orchid and Cap'n Jazz at least).

    There were only a few things missing in my mind:

    Fear - The Record
    Flipper - Generic
    Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
    MDC - Millions of Dead Cops
    Wipers - Over the Edge (the last Wipers album worthy of note. I'm really happy with your coverage of them. I have no idea how they got buried)

    Omitting the metal cuts for now of course.

    1983 was also the year that The Crossing by Big Country came out though it's one that usually falls under the radar for most people since the band has an unfair reputation as a one hit wonder.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Also, '83 marks the debut of Metallica. Any chance you'll be touching on them Zeph?

    I'm doing a metal run through next time.

    And seriously, seriously, Youth of America is beyond amazing.
    Everyone here who isn't in the know, be enlightened now.


    And yeah, there's some stuff that'll be in 83' that many of you might not be very familiar with. But as a hip-hop fan are essential rock trips to be made by me. Dance-Punk groups Liquid Liquid and ESG.

    Ah, you're right. My archives just have that album labeled wrong, haha.

    I'm hoping to see The Chameleons' debut, D.R.I.'s debut (an important link in the crossover between punk and metal) and the Subhumans debut (less important, more of a personal love). I trust you've got Sonic Youth's and the Minutemen's sophomore releases, since you did cover their debuts.

    Dance-Punk rules.
    I need to indulge my ear for electronic/dance music one day. I grew up listening to a couple dance music radio shows from NYU, namely beatsinspace, so much amazing stuff. I think that's what also slowly and surely made me a late 70's/early 80's fanatic because they played a lot of stuff from those times.
    Wagomu you go to school in Albany right? You should tune in.

    cool song

    I'll definitely have to check out the radio there. I like keeping tabs on the competition, haha.

    Speaking of radio, I just discovered that we have Over the Edge on vinyl. FUCK YEAH. I'm playing a side as soon as Close to the Edge finishes. Unintended perfect transition.

    Oh Wagomu, I kicked Prince off the lists, and to fill the spots of his in the 80's lists i've done so far I listened to The Wipers.
    Go check it out.
