Instrumentalism's last bastion is rock, but with crap like Nickelback coming out, talent's being pushed even farther back to heavy / true metal.

I agree with just about everything you said in your first few posts about music in general, though I would like to ask why you think Nickelback is crap?

They're too emo without being emo.

I'd say My Chem and Bullet for my Valentine are ruining Rock.

Interesting. I agree that My chemical Romance is emo. I do not know if I have heard Bullet for my Valentine, what is a popular song they make? I never thought of Nickelback as emo, but I also have only heard a handful of their songs. My younger sister likes My Chemical Romance, though I do not like them. Emo bands seem to becoming more popular with the emo generation. Not sure if they are ruining rock so much as they are changing the popular sound of rock. It happens every generation or few. I do not like it, but it is also not what I grew up with. In 10 or 20 years they will probably be saying the same thing.

Anyway, I will try to get a list together to contribute to the thread. I was only a kid in the 80s but I listen to enough music to hear a lot of things from that period. It will be based purely on music I like though, since I know very littel about social impact or anything else that might affect what songs I would list as great 80s songs.
