The new wave synth pop collective Men Without Hats were formed in 1980 by brothers Ivan and Stefan Doroschuk. Ivan was the leader of the group, writing the majority of the songs and providing the lead vocals; Stefan was the guitarist; and other members changed frequently throughout the course of the group’s career. They independently released their debut EP, Folk of the ’80s, in 1980; it was reissued the following year by Stiff in Britain. During 1982, the band consisted of Ivan, Stefan, another brother Colin Doroschuk (keyboards), along with drummer Allan McCarthy; this is the lineup that recorded Men Without Hats’ 1982 debut album, Rhythm of Youth. Taken from their debut, the single “The Safety Dance” became a major hit, peaking on the American charts at number three in 1983. Driven by an insistent three-chord synthesizer riff, the song was one of the biggest synth pop hits of the new wave era. The group wasn’t able to exploit its success, however. Folk of the ’80s (Part III) stalled at number 127 on the charts in America and made even less of an impact in other parts of the world. Thanks to the minor-hit title track, 1987’s Pop Goes the World was a bigger success, yet it didn’t recapture the audience their first album had gained. Released two years later, The Adventures of Women & Men Without Hate in the 21st Century failed to chart, as did its follow-up, 1991’s Sideways. The two albums’ lack of success effectively put an end to Men Without Hats’ career.

  1. I really love that in the 1180's they had the BEST Electronic Music!!! They were ahead of the discovery of Electromagnetic Theory by 700 years, when it was officially figured out in about 1880!!! Men Without Hats they were really ahead of their time by developing all this tech for the sake of Electronic Music! Long Live Men Without Hats! Masters of Electricity!

  2. MEN WITHOUT HATS WERE THE EDGE OF THE CUTTING EDGE IN THE 80'S!! THIS MUSIC STILL SOUNDS NEW TODAY. THE "I LIKE" VIDEO/SONG IS FRICKING AWESOME!! I'VE HAD A COPY OF THIS ALBUM SINCE DAY ONE!! WTF'S UP WITH THAT HORSE-HEAD THOUGH!!!???, the dj

  3. A mediocre song, from a barely mediocre band, lauded by a bunch of mediocre humans from a less than mediocre decade! The fucking 80s sucked pus like no decade before or since!

  4. I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)
    Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:7)
    When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mark 2:17)
