4. Bruce Springsteen - Born In The U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen was a rock icon before Born In The U.S.A., but soon after the disc hit in 1984 even your grandmother knew his name. Much like Thriller and Purple Rain, the album produced hit after hit that kept him on the radio for well over a year after the LP came out. To this day when many people think of Springsteen the first image in their head is him dancing with Courteney Cox while Clarence Clemons plays his sax solo in the "Dancing In The Dark" video. Also, no matter how many hits he's scored over the years, some guy is always yelling for "Glory Days" during the encores of one of his concerts.
