I've been out of KC for 20 years and it's no surprise they're still running those lame countdowns.

I'll bet the top 10 comes in just like it did 20 years ago... AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Lynard Skynard, The Who, The Beatles, etc, etc, etc

Gosh, I can't imagine some peeps hanging out: "We can't leave NOW, #19 is up next! I bet it's ___________!"

....Mr. Kotter,

Yup. It's awesome.

I began as a New Order fan back in the 80s.....danced my ass off to Substance a gazillion times.

Add Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill to my list....damn, I forgot how much I liked that album. I'd seriously contemplate adultery with her too, under circumstances I can only dream of......

I like Depech Mode very much. They are one of the best bands to survive beyond the Eighties. I have stopped following them after Ultra. New Order is another story. It is such a shame that Ian Curtis died. I think that he took the rawness and edge the band had with him. We will never know. They had started to show up on the radar somewhat right before he killed himself. They may have gone down that road of Iconists and lost most of what made them great sooner or later. We can only guess though.
