Default 80's Rock Bands

Hi everybody!

I just wanted to asked if any of you know melodic 80's rock bands such as Bon Jovi, Survivor and all that stuff... Other than Def Leppard, Van Halen, Whitesnake, Europe, Journey and so on, you know. I was looking for something "less known" or famous.

I love those 80's kind of songs with electric guitar and synth. The ones you may hear in low rated movies xd.

Thanks in advance!

I love Gorky Park, and particularly this song called Bang:

It was featured in the Access All Areas video. Great old Russian band

Danger Danger fit into the category you describe. Their last album Revolve was awesome.

You should check out Dann Huff's band, "Giant", from the late 80's-early 90's. They are the real deal.

They're not exactly "less known" but Warrant. I second the rec for Gorky Park too.
Life is short. Be sure to spend as much time as possible on the internet arguing about politics and entertainment.

About 2 years too late to be considered an 80s band, but Blue Tears. Bon Jovi meets Def Leppard. Awesomeness.
