1. Joy Division

3. The Cure
4. The Police
5. Blondie

Tough call between Blondie, Pretenders, and The B-52's, all of whom could have easily gone in that number 5 slot.

2. XTC
3. The Cure
4. Joy Division
5. Scritti Politti

I'm glad Talking Heads aren't in this group, less competition for a few of my underrated faves!

Did Echo & The Bunnymen already appear in another group? I can't quite remember.
