Duran Duran was without a doubt the 80's premiere boy band. As I reminisce and listen to my shuffle tracks I find myself replaying Duran Duran's more popular songs like The Reflex & Rio. Quick fact: Did you know their name was directly taken from a character in the 1968 Barbarella movie, Duran Duran? Yep go ahead and google it.
Back to the band though; they had the look, the hair (the hair was spectacular), the rags and most importantly the timing! They exploded on the scene when MTV was booming and big hair was 'in'. They were the pin-ups on every teen girl's wall. When once asked about their fans, bassist John Taylor said it was like "A wall of noise" that greeted them in concerts. Anyway they're my pick for throwback boy band of the day, enjoy!
