1985 bangers


#41

#42

more of the greatest, with authentic mid 80s video effects


#43

#44

from the same album, this is another banger. A downbeat, wretched, slow, miserable banger about a life wasted, admittedly, but a banger nonetheless


#45

Hell fire, this is intense.


#46

In the appropriate context where the lyrics are truly understood (ie not by Ronald Reagan, obviously)
