The absolute worst songs from the 1980s, voted on by the Ranker community. The '80 were known for lots of "worst" things: big bangs, acid-wash jeans, leg warmers, and music. The '80s were a compilation of some of the best and some of the worst music of all time, and unfortunately for our ears, the bad stuff is pretty bad. But thankfully, that's what this list is for! 

Even though some of these bands were wildly successful in the '80s, that doesn't mean their music is all great. What are the worst songs from the '80s? That's up for you to decide.
