The 1980s saw the emergence of new wave, one band, in particular, that was apart of the genre was five school friends known as The Cure.

The Cure was providing people of the ’80s with tunes such as "Let's Go to Bed" (1982), "Just Like Heaven" (1987) and "Lovesong" (1989) giving the band worldwide recognition.

In 1992, NME declared the Cure had, during the 1980s, become "a goth hit machine (19 to date), an international phenomenon and, yet, the most successful alternative band that ever shuffled disconsolately about the earth."

The band are estimated to have sold roughly 27 million records as of 2004 and with numbers like that there is no arguing that they deserve to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the 29th of March this year.

With The Cure being one of the best alternative rock bands around it only makes sense to add them to our airwaves so make sure to tune in to The Garage 96.1 and get your daily dosage of The Cure.
