FUNNY 80s MUSIC MEMES
Billy Idol is an iconic icon of the 80s, and he is still rockin' today. He claimed that he was always Dancing With Myself, but I have proof that isn't true!

With a REBEL YELL we cried more, more, more...what exactly what he asking for more of?

Perhaps it was for more WHITE WEDDINGS! White tuxedos were an 80s fashion trend, so that was probably what he wanted more, more, more of?

We all consider Billy Idol a loverboy, but, what about the band LOVERBOY? They were making some great music in the 80s. I always got the feeling that the lead singer of LOVERBOY only liked the weekends? He was always WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND. Probably b/c that is when they would perform their awesome 80s rock!

Then there is PETER GABRIELLE. What a artist. I never understood his music. Like, who wants to SHOCK THE MONKEY. Was this a call against animal cruelty and the use of test rabbits for makeup? I know Peter used a lot of make-up in the 80s.

My favourite 1980s band was MEN WITHOUT HATS. Not sure what hats had to do with anything, but they did have that awesome song SAFETY DANCE. Safe to dance without hats, but not safe to not dance. Not dancing will get you socially isolated. Ouch.

Then their other hit, which I still listen to today, 40 years later...LAND DOWN UNDER
|I come from a land down under kangaroo chilling|
And, they had the great videos that went along with their song. Remember seeing them on MTV. There was that crazy blond haired girl in one of them, that was memorable. Ahh, the 80s memories.

I've heard that some people confuse Land Down Under with TOTO AFRICA. Really? They are completely different songs.
|Land down under song joke|
Also, just a reminder that TOTO has plenty of other hits besides THE RAINS DOWN IN AFRICA!
|Toto has other hits besides Africa, haha|
I don't come from a land down under. I come from a place associated with Tarzan, Tarzan Boy...BALTIMORE!

I think Gary Numan bought his first car in Baltimore in the early 80s. That moment changed his life!
