    Joy Division were mostly 70s. Kraftwerk's best stuff was 70s as well.

    you're right. they both did have some good stuff come out in the 80s though.

    I was thinking talking heads were more 70s but maybe they are 80s.

    I'd go with Talking Heads as well. But, Sonic Youth did their best work in the 80s. There were plenty of amazing bands in the 80s. Replacements, Big Black, Husker Du, Butthole Surfers.

    Holy damn.

    That list is absurd. RATM's is much better. but I'd vote for Talking Heads.
