Who was the biggest band of 1987-88


Recommended Posts

So many huge albums were released in 87 and became even more popular in 1988. So who was the biggest? I know that the top 2 are probably Def Leppard and Guns N' Roses, but there was also aerosmith and a whole bunch of others. I wasnt born till 88 so for those of you who are old enough to remember, which band was the biggest?

It seemed to change every couple months during those two years. First INXS came out with "Kick" and they were real big. Then U2 released "The Joshua Tree", and they've been huge since then. Def Leppard became big in early '88 after they released the single for "Pour Some Sugar on Me", and then "Appetite for Destruction" came and blew all of them away.
