    Joy Division/New Order - The saddest music with the happiest lyrics.
    The Talking Heads - Into the blue again. Into the silent water.
    Descendents
    Kim Wilde - Wo OH! Everybody live for the music go 'round...
    Gang of Four
    Fugazi
    Pet Shop Boys
    Black Flag
    The Waitresses - Claimed to know what boys like and I believe them.
    Siouxie and the Banshees - Never get away with Hong Kong Garden these days.
    Depeche Mode
    A Flock of Seagulls - Nothing more 80s
    Frankie Goes to Hollywood
    Missing Persons
    The Minutemen
    Kate Bush - What a voice! All they wanted, was a sound that could kill someone, from a distance.
    Bow Wow Wow - Because I'm just, FOURTEEN! :eek:
    Bananarama
    The Four Skins
    The Go-Go's - Way underrated. Their unpublished punk was underground legend.
    Dead Kennedys
    B-52's - Kate and Cindy singing together is one of the finest sounds in all music.
    Husker Du
    Sonic Youth
    Social Distortion
    Circle Jerks
    Berlin - Don't play that last song while your parents are around. :wink:

    Very special mention goes to...

    Fantastic pop dance songs (including Tainted Love)
    Now, I ask you. Where will you such interesting lyrics these days??

    I'm in my Rolls Royce
    Look it's so huge
    It's big and it's gold
    With my dumb chauffeur
    Looking to procure
    Run little doggy
    Lure a disco dolly
    Run my little sex dwarf
    I feel so lonely
    Get my little camera
    Take a pretty picture
    Sex dwarf
    In a gold Rolls
    Making it with the dumb chauffeur
