Cheap Trick, Pebbles + Def Leppard rule the ’80s on 8: Big 40 Countdown 1988 (7/11/14)

It’s hard to forget the year 1988. Elton John auctioned off items from his personal collection, such as memorabilia and stage-worn clothing, for a total of $8.5 million. Billboard magazine published its Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for the first time, and The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Drifters, Bob Dylan, and The Supremes all got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

This week in 1988 on SiriusXM’s ’80s on 8 Big 40 Countdown, Cheap Trick was on fire at the top of the list with The Flame. Pebbles was riding close behind with Mercedes Boy, while Def Leppard was feeling sweet with Pour Some Sugar On Me rounding out the top three.
