  1. It’s amazing how your parents’ teenage rebelliousness looks really trashy and idiotic years later..a bit like a tattoo that looked really cool when you were 20, but now that your 60, it looks really sad.

  2. As much as there is lots to laugh at here, the genuine “good” bands (Judas Priest, Man o War, Flock of Seagulls, Skorpions, Red Hot Chili Peppers) being mocked shows this site is monitored by intellectually deprived no talent idiots who were born in the early 2000’s

  4. The 8th one down is the iconic Canadian band Max Webster Thats actually the cover of the album “High Class in Borrowed Shoes” which is a classic rock standard in the great white north. Still hear tracks like ‘Diamonds, Diamonds’ all the time on the radio. That image was considered edgy and avante garde and all the stuff back in the ’80s!

  5. Bogart co. 😆🤩. Their greatest hit was ‘Princess’, I think.. Funny to find the photo here, because they never made any international success, though I think their sound was quite nice back then and I still sometimes listen to some of their albums.

  6. Some great bands here, but can’t stop picturing them as old men telling the kids how they were “real men” back in the day. Lol

  7. I love the little note in the lower left hand corner of Grandmaster Flash! :D
    The guys with their pants around their ankles is an underwear ad. Right? Please?

  8. 3rd from the bottom on the left– that’s not a band, that’s a Japanese women’s pro-wrestling team. Dump Matsumoto is the only name in that group I remember.

  9. In the 60’s some bands did the “costume thing”, but never do i remember any band as gay and mentally ill as these bands.
