80s New Wave Music Hits – New Wave Video Clips from the Early 1980s

The B-52s
We do love our 1980s new wave music. Here is a video compilation of silly, awesomely fashionable 1980s videos from new wave bands. No, they’re not all one-hit wonders. Some even had multiple hits. But their impact on other new wave bands that became one-hit wonders is huge. So we’re showing these bands some love. The B-52s first album alone must have launched the formation of thousands of bands. People looked at Fred Schneider and said “If he can look like that and sing like that, I can be a rock star, too.”

Fred, we salute you and the entire new wave era. The world is a much better place with new wave in it. And I don’t care if punk was better, edgier, more political, etc. It’s the silliness and early 80s awesomeness of new wave that makes it so important in the pop music world.
