Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
A few weeks ago, we crowdsourced a list of the greatest debut albums of the 1980s. You provided us with more than 100 titles — too many for just one episode of Teenage Kicks. On December 26, 2020, we aired part 1, so this week, it's Part 2, covering the latter half of the '80s. We'll hear classic debut albums by Beastie Boys, Pet Shop Boys, Smithereens, Guns N' Roses, Public Enemy, Pixies, Nine Inch Nails and more. It's all great debuts of the '80s, part 2 — this week on Teenage Kicks.
