In the 1980s, synthesizers entered pop music, creating synth-pop and other electronic genres. Disco music slowly fell out of fashion, making room for the king of Pop, Michael Jackson. His 1982 album Thriller becomes the most successful album of the 80s.

The decade also saw the emergence of superstars like Janet Jackson, Madonna, Prince, and Whitney Houston. Bruce Springsteen rose to icon status with his album Born in the U.S.A. In the latter half of the 1980s, teen pop experienced its first wave, with bands like New Kids on the Block.

Hip-hop became the dominant cultural movement in African American communities in the United States.

In the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, the pop duo Wham! made a huge success.




In 1985, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure organized Live Aid, a dual-venue concert to raise funds to relieve the ongoing Ethiopian famine. The concert featured many of the biggest names on the music scene of the time. A global audience of nearly 2 billion watched the show on TV.

Kylie Minogue’s first single, Locomotion, was a massive hit in her home country, Australia.
