New Wave Genre

New Wave was to be the 1980's less threatening alternative to the Punk Rock of the 1970's, such as The Sex Pistols.  Most New Wave music of the 1980's has stayed popular and well known up to present day, so its unique style and influence is still significant, most notably bands like The Police being one of the first white reggae bands are still incredibly popular today as they set a trend in music style and this specific genre.
It was a less roughed edged and less political form of music but lighter and less abrasive influenced by the light hearted feel of 1960's music and 1950's fashion.
Other strongly significant New Wave Bands of the 1980's are The Cars, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper and The Human League.
