Format : 12" single, 7" single
Genre : Post-Punk, New wave
Length : 10:35
Label : E'G Records

"Eighties" is Killing Joke's first single off their fifth studio album, Night Time. It was originally released in April, 1984[1] under E'G Records as a 12" and 7" single and was produced by Chris Kimsey. The 12" single A-side featured the track "Eighties (Serious Dance Mix)" with "Eighties" and "Eighties (The Coming Mix)" as B-sides. The 7" single exempted the "Serious Dance Mix" and instead, featured "Eighties" as the A-side. Also, the 7" single was sold with a bonus 7" single of "Let's All Go (to the Fire Dances)". The single reached number sixty in the UK Singles Chart,[2] but received less recognition than the 1992 song "Come as You Are" by the US band Nirvana, which had a similar riff. A short snippet of "Eighties" was the opening theme to the short-lived 2002 Fox sitcom That '80s Show.
