at Joy division... didn't they break up in 1980? How about New Order
The Smiths is an acceptable answer, Morrissey is not (1 album in the late 80s...)
How about, Black Flag from My War on , different sound than even Damaged.
I think Minor Threat was strictly 80s, maybe very late 70s? too lazy to look it up.
I guess Replacement's are pretty 80s... I'll go with them for my final answer for favorite band from 80s.
