Although they were though of us primarily as a British New Wave band, ABC actually drew from a lot of American R&B to create their music. This sleek amalgamation was created some of the catchier Synth Pop of the era which also charted well. Many of the New Wave associated bands had a short shelf life, though ABC had a fairly decent run. They didn’t make it to the 90’s, but reflection of their era has generated new respect for them.

Look of Love is still one of my faves. Fry had a great distinctive voice. R&R Hall? Sorry, not in this lifetime.

New Wave Hall? Definitely.

I like ABC. They were definitely one of the better bands to emerge from the MTV 80's. They have lots of great, catchy songs, and Martin Fry is a great, charismatic vocalist. AND they were snappy dressers too--who can forget their gold suits? But I just don't think ABC have ever been a dominating band, and I can't think of anybody who'd point to them as an influence. ABC are a very good band, but not influential or popular enough to ever be inducted. But miracles do happen! In the meantime, definitely buy their Greatest Hits CD, you'll like it!
