As it pertains to '80s music, or any other decade for that matter, the answer is never really quite clear. Outside the mainstream" isn't really enough of a definition. The term "alternative" didn't really become prominent until the very end of the '80s, and into the early '90s.
This has been the first rock & roll decade without revolution, or true revolutionaries, to call its own. The Fifties witnessed nothing less than the birth of the music. The Sixties were rocked by Beatlemania, Motown, Phil Spector, psychedelia and Bob Dylan. The Seventies gave rise to David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, heavy metal, punk and New Wave.
The ’80s began on a dark turn with the suicide of Ian Curtis and ended with the explosion of gangsta rap and baggy Britpop.
The best 80s music videos not only defined the decade, they influenced fashions and elevated the music video to the status of high ar. Despite notoriously hating music videos, Dire Straits were truly adopters of the meta-music video.
