The Psychedelic Furs

Influential to indie pop-rock, The Psychedelic Furs took the idea of punk and softened it into a dreamy, hopelessly-romantic package that fits neatly into the dawn of the MTV era. John Hughes formed a Brat Pack movie around their song “Pretty In Pink,” and their discography carries the same sort of nostalgia-inducing power as the famous director.
