10. New Edition
New Edition may seem like a simple bubblegum pop act, but their legacy is very impressive. Not only did the group launch the careers of Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant and Bel Biv Devoe, their music was crucial in kickstarting the New Jack Swing sound and paved the way for New Kids on the Block and other boy bands to come in the late Eighties. "Cool It Now," one of their signature tunes, was the group's first Top 10 hit in 1985.
