Hey there, rock n rollers! Reverend Smith here, ready to crank the volume and dive into some of the decade’s most iconic tunes. This list ain’t your typical best-of, though. We’re gonna explore the 80s rock scene through facts, trivia, and the stories behind the songs. So grab your leg warmers, neon headbands, and let’s rock!

1. “Back in Black” (AC/DC, 1980): Did you know this iconic tribute to Bon Scott was recorded in just six weeks? Talk about pouring your heart out! Fun fact: the record cover’s bell tolls were recorded at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Sydney, where Scott is buried.
2. “We Built This City” (Starship, 1985): This chart-topping anthem wasn’t about San Francisco, despite the lyrics. It was actually written for a musical about Los Angeles! Bonus fact: the song features the talents of six different drummers.
3. “Living on a Prayer” (Bon Jovi, 1986): This power ballad’s “Romeo and Juliet” story almost didn’t make it. The band initially considered scrapping it, but Jon Bon Jovi fought for its inclusion. Thank goodness, Reverend says!
4. “Sweet Child o’ Mine” (Guns N’ Roses, 1987): Slash’s legendary opening riff was improvised during a jam session! Talk about rock n roll magic. Fun fact: Axl Rose reportedly wrote the lyrics in just 15 minutes.
5. “Jump” (Van Halen, 1984): This keyboard-driven hit almost didn’t feature the instrument! Eddie Van Halen initially wanted to use a synthesizer, but switched to piano at the last minute. Key move, eh?
6. “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Queen, 1975): Okay, technically not from the 80s, but its legendary music video premiered in 1981, forever changing the MTV landscape. Did you know the iconic operatic section was recorded in just one take?
7. “Like a Prayer” (Madonna, 1989): This controversial song pushed boundaries with its religious imagery. Fun fact: the burning crosses in the video were digitally added later, causing further uproar.
8. “Walk This Way” (Run-DMC featuring Aerosmith, 1986): This unlikely collaboration bridged the gap between rock and rap, becoming a groundbreaking moment in music history. Bonus fact: the video shoot featured cameos from Rick Rubin and Jason Negri.
9. “You Give Love a Bad Name” (Bon Jovi, 1986): Another Bon Jovi classic, this song was almost given away to another band! Jon Bon Jovi convinced Richie Sambora to keep it for themselves, and the rest is history.
10. “Paradise City” (Guns N’ Roses, 1987): This epic track paints a vivid picture of Los Angeles’ underbelly. Did you know Axl Rose was inspired by a National Geographic article about runaway teens?
Bonus Fact: Remember cassette tapes? Well, over 80 million copies of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” were sold on cassette alone in the 80s!
That’s all for this rockin’ list, folks! Remember, these are just a few of the many incredible songs that defined the 80s. What are your favorites? Disclaimer: This list is subjective and reflects the opinions of Reverend Smith. Feel free to disagree and share your own favorites!
