A genre I like

American Heartbeat is an album that's often on in the car with a similar sound.

To me they perfectly sum up how bad music in general was in the '80s. I largely lost interest in new music in that decade, it took the Stone Roses and the Brit Pop revolution to reinvigorate my interest just as punk did in the '70s after Glam Rock.
