On Faith No More's major-label debut, Introduce Yourself, the band that fans grew to know and love much later in its career finally rears its ugly head (much more so than on their 1985 independent release We Care a Lot). All the ingredients are there, but like its predecessor there's one crucial item missing, super-vocalist Mike Patton. This would be original singer Chuck Mosley's last outing with the band, before he was ejected due to erratic and unpredictable behavior. Still, the album is consistent and interesting, with Mosley's out-of-tune vocals being an acquired taste to most. "The Crab Song" is one of their most underrated tracks, which packs quite a wallop when guitarist Jim Martin's heavily saturated guitar kicks in. The title track is an enjoyable and brief rant, and the loopy bass and irresistible melodicism of "Anne's Song" should have been a hit. There's also a slightly updated version of "We Care a Lot" included, and the resulting video gave the band their first taste of MTV success (but nothing compared to what they'd experience with their heavily rotated breakthrough "Epic"). A step in the right direction toward the deliciously twisted sound they'd achieve on later releases.

With "Thriller" in 1982, the best-selling album of all time, Michael Jackson broke down the boundaries between styles, races and audiences. The album completely rocked the 20th century pop music industry.

The Electrifying Gospel Sounds of Sacred Steel

The pedal steel guitar's rise in Pentecostal churches in the 1930s charged up worship services. As it emerged as the lead instrumental over the organ, a new form was born—Sacred Steel. Explore this gospel tradition from its early pioneers to current-day performers.

1984-1987: George Michael’s Transformation

In the mid-1980s—at the height of his fame with Wham!—George Michael decided to embark on a solo career. Following the release of huge hits like “Faith” and “Freedom! ‘90”, he would soon shoot into international superstardom. The boyish charm he possessed in the early days of his music career eventually began to take on a much more mature, masculine edge, setting him on a trajectory to become a revolutionary global icon.
