Bon Jovi was already the number one band in my book, but now I was convinced that VH1 made the right decision with their number 1 pick! After watching it I became obsessed with Livin' on a Prayer again, haha

I was really surprised that vh1 chose Bon Jovi. they really werent a huge representation of what the 80s were all about. I really think a song like 'Purple Rain' should've been number 1.

Dude, you're in New Jersey and you're saying they "weren't a huge representation of what the 80s were all about???" Have you lived under a rock for the past 25 years??????????

Purple Rain represented the 80's? if you are going to pick a Prince song to represent, pick when doves cry or let's go crazy before purple rain.

Either way, no one song represents and entire decade. We have new wave, hard rock, pop, dance, modern rock, rap, r&B and so many other genres to represent the decade and there are tons literally tons of songs that represented the 80's

LOAP was a huge huge song, one of many different ones that made up the 80's and their entire list.

The list asks what were the top songs of the decade not which one song encapsulates all our experiences. If one song could do that, we'd be rather dull, or it would have to sound pretty strange and be extremely long.

OB, I think that one song exists...and it's called We Didn't Start The Fire by Billy Joel. The single most ridiculously sounding, nonsense song I've ever heard!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!
