The 80s were indisputably the greatest decade in general for music. Pop music got bigger than it ever would be before or after, we had the advent of hair metal, R&B and hip-hop became more and more of a dominating force. Everything just seemed so massive.
A lot of classic 80s albums have held up today, and in particular, these 10 are ones that we're pretty sure everybody had.
Let's get the obvious out of the way: everybody had Thriller. It's literally the highest-selling album of all time.
Most bands would give up after the death of their lead singer, but instead, AC/DC released Back In Black. 'Nuff said.
Bruce Springsteen earned his nickname of "The Boss" with Born In The USA.
Guns N' Roses welcomed us to the jungle when Appetite For Destruction first released in 1989.
Even more classic albums came out in the 80s, keep reading to see which ones we all had!

Littrell has always been known to be a bit of a goofball, so it's no surprise that he
The Backstreet Boys have been keeping their promise for decades now, "as long as there is music, they keep coming back again." Well, to be completely honest, they've never really left, but just go with me here. BSB's latest song called "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" took all of us by storm. It feels like such a classic throwback to their original hits and the video is absolutely 90s perfection. They have been out promoting it, doing YouTube videos and appearances at the Country Music Awards, but their latest appearance brings back a classic song that no one is ever
