Musical guests on The Young Ones, ranked.

You'll have to check em out on YouTube yourself, but maybe just the top 7.
  1. 12.
    John Otway
    "Body Talk" ...This shitshow was on the final episode. Way to go out with a blehhhh.
  2. 11.
    Radical Posture with Alexei Sale
    "Dr. Martens Boots" ...I know Alexei Sale is the other member of The Young Ones but I don't care for him at all. Bugs me.
  3. 10.
    Alexei Sale
    "Stupid Noises" ...Like I said, not a fan. But I'll rank this higher because it's ridiculous. It's actually a bit, not a musical guest spot.
  4. 9.
    Rip Rig + Panic
    "You're My Kind of Climate" ...Never really cared for this performance.
  5. 8.
    Ken Bishop's Nice Twelve
    "Subterranean Homesick Blues" ...Good song, poor execution. Seems like a morale boosting video that the "fun" boss made people in the office participate in against their will.
  6. 7.
    The Damned
    "Nasty" ...Forefathers of punk. This song is where we get into the good performances. #12-8 are forgettable.
  7. 6.
    Dexy's Midnight Runners
    "Jackie Wilson Said" ...Good song but it's no "Come On, Eileen." I actually just listened to their new album. Unrecognizable from the 80s.
  8. 5.
    Madness
    "House of Fun" ...First of two appearances. Pretty good, but the 2nd time would be better.
  9. 4.
    Amazulu
    "Moonlight Romance" ...Probably the most ska/reggae song in the show's run which is saying a lot.
  10. 3.
    Nine Below Zero
    "11 + 11" ...Great musical guest for the very first episode. Real Kinks-style sound.
  11. 2.
    Madness
    "Our House" ...2nd appearance by Madness. The most popular song to be performed on the show.
  12. 1.
    Motörhead
    "Ace of Spades" ...My introduction to Motörhead. Scrambled my young mind.
