After all, "modern rock" as a descriptor only has only been around since sometime in the mid-'90s, when radio stations programming the sounds of the alternative nation needed something to call themselves besides "The X" or just "Alternative."

Best 80s Modern Rock Album contains the usual hits from these types and more; it also has a few ringers thrown in, like Canuck synth-poppers Strange Advance and Doctor & the Medics' left-field cover of "Spirit in the Sky." For cocktail trivia's sake, the "Dr."'s name was Clive Jackson.
