I love this.  But we HAVE to give tens to every human league song! Does it matter that some of these weren’t created by the 80s? :eli:

Well, I mean, you'd have to put stuff like Never Tear Us Apart (1979) and the 90s hits that other bands had (Enjoy The Silence, Regret) in!

 

So, eight artists - ten singles each. If I may:

 

Joy Division/New Order (do them as one act)

The Cure

The Smiths

The Human League

Duran Duran (for the poppers)

Siouxsie Sioux and the Banshees

Depeche Mode

Echo and the Bunnymen

 

Smells like a HIT to me. But what do I know?

should i do what you did in the 90s uog last rate where you added 1-2 song from etc girls - im thinking flock of seagulls/animotion/blankmage/prefab sprout/xtc?  the last two aren't really aesthetically cohesive with the rate but should be mentioned!

I'd leave it to that eighty! You can save the extras for the gay version.

 

And someone should start the AMERICAN version of this - 80s/early 90s college rock and alt! Sonic Youth, The Replacements, pre-Losing My Religion R.E.M., THE PIXIES... c'mon now!

Just passing by but I remember (and I just double checked this lol) there was a This Was 2017 Pop Rate with Katy, Kesha, and Taylor in it :rip: 

 

Also @MP2K when are we starting up New Wave of R&B Pt. III? You already ran the list by me like a month ago nn :thing: 

BUT.

 

That version of TW2017 was never completed because no one wanted to listen to Ed Sheeran! So all three albums were never fully rated.

part of me wants to ask for blondie but i feel like they might run away with it and the results will be unsatisfactory (no offense...)

Blondie was not what college rock was playing then! But Pavement? Absolutely! I would even allow their archenemies Smashing Pumpkins ...

We actually did one last year :laugh: I had to double check since it wasn't in the OP; @clue hosted it but got fed up with Lana's 2020 antics so they basically dumped all the results :ahh: 

 

 

 

What we need is Frank Ocean discography rate (whenever he drops another album)! One more album's worth of material should be enough for a rate.
