I can't choose one single band/artist/song but the choices below will give you an idea of where my head was at during that decade.

Roadie
Steppin' Out- Joe Jackson
Although "Penthouse and Pavement"- Heaven 17, is a close second. (Didn't embed songs since I'm currently on mobile)
"A little goodwill goes a mighty long way." - Ted Leo and the Pharmacists

If I have to chose an artist it has to be either Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and of course Megadeth from the 80's.

 

Metallica - Kill 'Em All - 1983

spotify:album:6FMPDVTm8l5IrEQla46VQl

 

Slayer - Show No Mercy - 1983

spotify:album:3D6BriGykla1Qi2YzeoE7X

 

I would have put Fistful of Metal from 1983 by Anthrax as their debut but it has become unavailable right now.

So I have to go for the next major release that really opened things up for the group.

Anthrax - Spreading the Disease - 1985

spotify:album:0qEFMrunmeRHqzI9xAnu9L

 

Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? - 1986

spotify:album:4U8ZF5zDIRy4lBnnXBN2uO

 

OverKill - Taking Over - 1987 - I would have added their debut release Feel The Fire from 1985 but it is currently not available.
spotify:album:5o5qYy6hUQwHP2zSqqRC8N

 

Nuclear Assault - Game Over - 1986

spotify:album:0isrNd8l4UqHhtPDhCKsId

 

Kreator - Endless Pain - 1985

spotify:album:42xxsfm4FFyeL8ncoCEXQk

 

Pleasure to Kill - 1986

spotify:album:46JMZu57XrjbDn6JsbSfKF

 

And just for the cult underground scene which these two bands just did not break out big enough.

 

Possessed - Seven Churches - 1985

spotify:album:3Odnpp1zUsv6Ab2R8iOqnd

 

Hallows Eve  - Tales of Terror - 1985

spotify:album:0ACnXo8CQq1Rk7RIjyMSHz

 

I think that is enough for now, each band really did widen open different sound styles in the speed, thrash, hardcore, and just all around in your face metal in the 80's. A nice throw back to the crazed tape trading metal underground scene from ages ago.

So many great songs. I liked earlier 80s best ... 81-85. One of my favorite time frames was mid 1983. Here's a link to a playlist of the top songs from May 1983. Loved this countdown: http://open.spotify.com/user/1218853001/playlist/1K5kFgwWDk90lTQkm75OgC

This is such a hard question! I guess mine changes like the weather. Currently though my favourite song is The Pan Within by The Waterboys 🙂

LOVE the Talking Heads! David Byrne is a true genius

Picking just one song from the 80s is pretty much impossible. 

 

For today I'll say this The Psychedelic Furs track but David Bowie – Ashes To Ashes and Cyndi Lauper – Time After Time were also close.

Also good, @Joe He wrote some excellent songs.

 

Got to enjoy some Phil Collins too. Don't think you could get a (pop) star quite like him in this day an age
