Lange Haare, Gitarren-Solos und viele der besten Rockbands aller Zeiten sorgten in den 1980er Jahren für richtig gute Stimmung. In unserer Playlist findet ihr die 150 besten Rocksongs der 80er Jahre.

In den 80er Jahren sorgten Pop-Metal-Bands für großes Aufsehen in den Charts. Bands wie Bon Jovi, Europe und auch die erfolgreichste deutsche Band, die Scorpions standen im Mittelpunkt der Musikliebhaber.

Die Punk-Musik hatte es Anfang der 80er Jahre schwerer. Der sogenannte Post-Punk mit Gruppen wie The Cure und Joy Division lieferten einen neuen Soundtrack ab, der zu überzeugen wusste.

Den Spagat zwischen Pop und Rockmusik schafften Bands wie Queen, Simple Minds, U2, Van Halen oder Whitesnake. Besonders erfolgreich war die Rockband Guns N’ Roses, die mit Songs wie „Paradise City“ und „Sweet Child o’mine“ die ganze Welt in ihren Bann ziehen konnte.

Heavy Metal-Bands erlebte in den 80er Jahren eine ihrer besten Phasen. Iron Maiden, Motörhead oder Metallica schafften es mit einigen Songs in die Charts und sorgten so für musikalische Abwechslung.

Die nachfolgenden 150 Songs stammen aus der Rockmusik und verwandten Subgenres. Diese Lieder sind aufgrund ihrer anfänglichen und anhaltenden Beliebtheit sowie ihren Einfluss und Auswirkung auf die Entwicklung von Rock und seiner Subgenres ausgewählt worden.
