A totally righteous collection of tunes!
From hair metal to the King of Pop, these 100 best-selling albums made up the soundtrack of the '80s. The wild success of artists Madonna, Michael Jackson, Van Halen, and Prince are chronicled here, along with more mellow musicians such as John Mellencamp, Phil Collins, Lionel Richie, and Huey Lewis. Metal heads will also appreciate entries from Def Leppard, Metallica, Guns 'n' Roses, Quiet Riot, and more. Each listing features the full-color original sleeve artwork, and is packed with information about the musician lineup, track listings, and number-one singles that resulted. Return to the footloose years of the 1980s!
