The Human League
Alright, don't snicker. You might not want to admit it, but plenty of you were 80s fans even before VH1 made it hip, and back then, these synth-poppers ruled the airwaves. Of course, once that decade ended, their hits dried up, but that's the nature of pop. You can still swoon to "Human" and jiggle to "Fascination" and shout out the lyrics to "Don't You Want Me." Even if Phil Oakley's lost his new wave mane and his keyboard players/songwriters, he's still got Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley with him to sing along.
