Duran Duran are an English band. They were one of the most successful acts of the 80s and a leading band in the MTV-driven “Second British Invasion” of the United States, where they were first seen in the 1981 Listen to London film. Since the 1980s, they have had 14 singles in the Top 10 on the UK Singles Chart and 21 in the Billboard Hot 100 charts and have sold more than 100 million records. While they were generally considered part of the New Romantic scene along with bands such as Spandau Ballet when they first emerged, they later shed this image. The band worked with fashion designers to build a sharp and elegant image that got them nicknamed “the prettiest boys in rock.” The band’s controversial videos, which included partial nudity and sexual material, became popular in the early 80s on the then-new music video channel MTV. Duran Duran were among the first bands to have their videos made by professional directors with 35 mm film movie cameras, which gave their videos a much more polished look. In 1984, the group were early innovators with video technology in their live stadium shows.
