519. Fine Young Cannibals

Seeming poised for eternal greatness, Fine Young Cannibals had a monster album in the late 80’s that appealed to both mainstream and independent audiences. They never did follow up with anything big; not because they failed but because they never tried. Fine Young Cannibals quietly disappeared and had they stayed together, we can’t help but think they had the potential to be way higher on this list.

Talk about cutting yourself short! Fine Young Cannibals made great music, but only two albums worth---not a big enough catalog for a Hall Of Fame induction (unless your band made a HUGE, CULTURAL impact like the Sex Pistols, and they only made *one* album). What a shame, 'cause the Fine Young Cannibals were really good. At least they still get played on the radio from time to time.
