Commercial or cult favorites, they’re impressive as being one of the ’80s’ seminal bands who culled more than 30 critical singles.Read More

Men at Work were one of the more surprising success stories of the new wave era, rocketing out of Australia in 1982 to become the most successful artist of the year.
