100 Greatest New Wave Artists

Background - 'New Wave' evolved from 'Punk' in the late '70s being less anti-social and more radio (and MTV) friendly, hitting it's high in '83 and faded around '87. It can be best described as mixing the energy of Punk with a bit of 'Glam', 'Pop', 'Art-Rock' & 'Dance' and relied heavily on synthesizers.

Criteria: - These artists were chosen on thier popularity, originality, impact, influence, and talent in "New Wave" music.
