379. The Tubes

Many bands on this list have two distinct periods, but it is next to impossible to find any artist that seemingly had two separate careers more than the Tubes. With the first half that featured bizarre performance art based shows and songs of campy parody few acts seemed more “out there” than the Tubes. Their second phase was a band that seriously toned down their camp and concentrated on sleek Arena Rock that although was a departure was very successful. Despite this split personality that the group seemed to have, we have a hard time envisioning either one in Cleveland.

Closer to being in than one might think and first look.

  • 421. The Teardrop Explodes
    Perhaps the most ambitious of the New Wave bands from England, Julian Cope and his band, The Teardrop Explodes captured many an imagination. Perhaps this was because their own imaginations were largely influenced by the hallucinogens they were on.
