One of the most glorious launches in history, the title track for the thrice-platinum The Final Countdown is so bombastically brilliant, such glorious garbage, that this nuclear hair assault could only spew from the vacuous '80s. But the full-tilt follow-up "Rock the Night" rules also: "You know it ain't easy/Running out of thrills. Carrie" comes off a consummate butane ballad. Meanwhile, the rest of the disc packs so much power that Swedish superheroes Europe get away with all the processed pretension.

But believe me - if you skip the first track, you'll enjoy the album a whole lot more. Europe’s influences aren't hard to peg – think Bon Jovi with a gay singer, and you’d be pretty close. However, the band do not limit themselves to the softer side of glam rock – the keyboards intro on Cherokee owes as much to Bruce Springsteen’s Glory Days as it does to Van Halen’s Jump Europe were one of the most popular band in the 80's. The FC is a classic 80's pop/rock/gay metal album and it's their best effort. Despite the fact that Europe were not consistent they will be forever remembered for the title song.

Europe released two album on the Swedish label Hot Records before getting a deal with Epic in 1985. The signing was a fortuitous one for the label, as the band was on the cutting edge of the hair metal trend, with a slick, keyboard-driven sound and an MTV-friendly look. The Final Countdown" was the first single Epic released, and it broke the band worldwide, going to in the UK and in America. Seeking the modern synth-rock sound of the mid-'80s, Epic Records put the band with producer Kevin Elson for The Final Countdown album. He had worked on the 1983 Journey album Frontiers. This song has been used in the TV shows Arrested Development, Chuck, Glee and Gotham. Movies include Shiner (2000) The Kid & I (2005) and Pitch Perfect (2012). It also gets a mention in a 2015 episode of the animated show Gravity Falls, when a character says, "It's the final countdown!
