"I love the billboard series from the 80s! Only problem I have with the 1987, 1988, and 1989 is lack of hair bands! Groups like Bon Jovi, Poison, Cinderella, Def Leppard and so on were all a huge part of late 80s top 40 music. They set the trend and helped shape top 40 music at that time. They don't get so much as a single track on any of the CDs. Love the tracks they picked, but I think it should be a little more equal time. Same thing could be said for big rap hits like "Parents Just Don't Understand" 1988 and "Walk This Way" 1986. Just to name a few."
