Editors’ Notes The irony about punk, New Wave, and synth-pop is that while they all began as alternatives to the rock establishment, they wound up transforming it throughout the ’80s. Several of rock’s trendiest stars early in the decade (AC/DC, The Police, Tom Petty, and former Runaway Joan Jett) either had roots in punk or were marketed as punks due to an emphasis on punchy tunes, serious attitude, and killer hooks. Shortly afterward, another big shift occurred when veteran stars such as ZZ Top, Van Halen, and heartland rock icon Bruce Springsteen boldly embraced synth-pop’s digital technology and robotically throbbing beats, turning arenas into enormous dance floors. As with all pop-culture trends, however, the backlash eventually arrived, and its name was Guns N’ Roses, whose 1987 landmark Appetite for Destruction viciously reasserted rock’s roots in riffs, rebellion, and loudness.
