1982: ‘Asia’ by Asia


Nothing screams early ‘80s prog rock quite like Asia’s self-titled debut, which comes complete with overproduced vocals, campy—albeit well-executed—instrumentals, and a writhing sea dragon on the album cover. The self-appointed supergroup plowed into the hearts of teenagers everywhere by way of songs like “Only Time Will Tell” and “Heat of the Moment,” hitting the #1 spot on the Billboard charts as a result.
