1. No solo artists. This means that any band where someone’s name gets top billing (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band) is disqualified. If the lead name is a pseudonym (Siouxsie and the Banshees), it’s acceptable.
2. Only the band’s work from 1980-1989 will be considered, even if they put out significant music in another decade.
