Just based off a Random Google Search, check out the following for 80s.
http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/page...ists80pop.html <--- Exclude the Pop/Hip-Hop names
http://rateyourmusic.com/list/Maveri...0s_rock_albums <--- Quality imo
http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/gr...-80s-bands.asp <--- I figured you were a member of the site already, but check out the list
Anything based in the 70s would be a totally different Google search and would cost extra effort, which I am not going to exert at the moment.
