    I only have like six or seven of these albums, and I bought a ton of music back then. The rest that I don't have were just Mtv one or two hit wonders.

    I can't play this one in good conscience.

    Also: Wouldn't Adam Ant - Friend or Foe 1982 be the more logical choice?

    I'll just ignore the fact that you refer to these as "New Wave" or "Alternative" and vote for my favourite albums out of the lot:


    The Cars

    Parallel Lines (Blondie)

    War (U2)

    Pretenders

    Ghost In The Machine (The Police)

    Once Upon A Time (Simple Minds)

    yeah, what was I thinking. He'll pit Cars against Police to knock one of them out and put DD up against The Motels to keep DD in the game. Lol!

    The Cars (The Cars) vs Kings Of The Wild Frontier (Adam Ant)
    Cars are going to be a juggernaut in this competition. They just squashed The Ants. Technically, this album is Adam And The Ants.

    All Four One (The Motels) vs Spring Session M (Missing Persons)
    Motels always seemed like music for your parents.

    Avalon (Roxy Music) vs Parallel Lines (Blondie)
    Tough call here, but got to give it to Debbie and the boys.

    War (U2) vs The Lexicon Of Love (ABC)
    I'm so over U2, but this one ain't even close.

    Pretenders (Pretenders) vs Welcome To The Pleasure Dome (Frankie Goes To Hollywood)
    Pretenders is such a great album. Relax is such a great single. Not a tough choice.

    Ghost In The Machine (The Police) vs Beauty And The Beat (Go-Go's)
    The Police at the top of their game vs. a slightly above average pop band.

    Rio (Duran Duran) vs Into The Gap (Thompson Twins)
    There are few bands I dislike more than the Thompson Twins. Fun fact, they were not twins.

    Once Upon A Time (Simple Minds) vs Get The Knack (The Knack)
    You don't get much new wavier than The Knack. Simple Minds ae overrated.
    There's two kinds of music: There's music I like, and there's music I don't like.

    Lol. I will not change the order of the match ups from the original post. The Cars and the Police cannot meet until the finals. Same with the Motels and Duran Duran.

    I thought Roxy Music would do better against Blondie.
