Duran Duran - 1982
This five-piece British pop act were the first band broken by MTV. The young cable network was desperate for videos, and they aired "Girls On Film," "Hungry Like The Wolf" and "Rio" incessantly. It turned the group into superstars in America, though they took a hiatus in the mid-1980s and never quite regained their momentum – even though they scored comeback hits with "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone" in 1993. Every couple of years they try to make a comeback, but they have enough old hits to sell out concerts until the end of time.
