24 Rock Songs of the '80s You Need to Download Now

There's something about '80s rock music that's different from the rock of the other decades. Perhaps (as Julianne Hough once said) it's the "amazing, fantastic melodies." I grew up listening to '80s rock music, for my dad would refuse to play anything else in the car. I didn't understand his reasoning back then, but I do now. (And I cannot thank him enough).
