When you were a teen, what or who was your favorite music band or singer?

I'm a child of the 80's and was a total Duran Duran freak. My entire room (including the ceiling) was plastered with pictures and posters of them. My teen daughter recently has gotten into 80's music and it makes me so happy to be able to share my love of New WAVE with her!

  • During my middle and high school years, I was really into new wave...XTC, The Smiths, The Cure, Depeche Mode, New Order, Bauhaus, etc. Pixies were then and still remain my favorite band of all time. I still listen to most of these bands. I will confess to liking Guns n Roses too--I was in 7th or 8th grade when Appetite For Destruction came out, and it was a great album.

  • LOL! They came on the scene when I was in 12th grade and I remember before they got really popular, I had to take my little sister to a Tiffany concert a year or so before my senior year where NKOTB were the opening act (at least I THINK it was them...).

  • You are so lucky to be honest I think the best music was the 70's 80's and the 90's me as a teenager was more of the late 70's and so on. My teen idols were...don't laugh but they were so hot back then now omg it sucks to get old.

    1. Shaun Cassidy
    2. Leif Garret

    After that I started to fall more for the guys in my life it was no longer a dream....lol
