    LOL it's guitars and drums and dudes in drag ... but pure rock 'n' roll.

    Billy Joel's '80s rock 'n' roll.

    This is Rushmore.

    Are you putting 1980s Billy Joel over U2 or The Police?

    I'd put him over U2 and that's not a slight to U2.

    I'd put Huey Lewis above '80s Billy Joel.

    I wouldn't do that but Chris Berman's favorite band did carve out a decent little niche.

    And U2 isn't on that mountain.

    I think a decade is too long of a time frame. Music and musical tastes change way too much in 10 years.

    I only assume that BYM is working on a 4,000 word treatise underlining why Billy Ocean is the true 1980s superstar.

    Billy Joel isn't making my top four list of 80s acts named Billy.

    I think Run-DMC deserves consideration -- brought Hip-Hop to the mainstream
