Love and Rockets

When defending the cause that the 80's did indeed produce some great music, I always cite Love and Rockets as an example. And it isn't just that fact that they had the perfect mix of Goth and Pop, it's that their songs are fantastic.

There is no greater proof of this than the soon to be released Love and Rockets tribute cd. The disc will contain tracks by Frank Black, Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, and a host of others. You can listen to a bunch of great tracks at this My Space page. The amazing thing is that although I havent't heard of most of these bands, it doesn't matter because the original songs are so great. Put on some black eyeliner and give it a listen!
