491. A-ha

Considered by many Americans to be a one hit wonder, the Norwegian band, A-ha were actually anything but. Although their breakthrough song and video, “Take On Me” was the song they are most known for, in Europe they had monumental success. At their best as a Synth Pop act, A-ha forayed into Alt Rock elements and had developed a solid reputation as band worth watching live. A-ha are true International stars, and despite an 80’s bubblegum reputation they may have within American circles, many Europeans do not see them that way.
