Between 1982 and 1984, Duran Duran rocketed from underground British post-punk sensations to teen idols, personifying new wave for much of the mainstream audience. Their reputation was built through music videos, which accentuated their fashion model looks and glamorous sense of style. While they did have sharper pop sensibilities than their new romantic contemporaries like Spandau Ballet and Ultravox, none of their peers exploited MTV like the Birmingham-based quintet. They launched a second act in the 1990s with hits like "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone" and a lineup featuring former Missing Persons guitarist Warren Cuccurullo. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
