The Final Countdown by Europe (1986)

One of the best-known commercial rock songs from the 1980s, The Final Countdown was the title track from the 3x Platinum (U.S) selling album (the Swedish band's third studio album) and made No.1 in 25 countries, including the UK. It peaked at #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

That legendary keyboard riff was originally created by vocalist Joey Tempest on an old Korg Polysix keyboard in the early eighties.

Europe were one of the biggest-selling rock acts of the 80s, selling 20 million albums worldwide. Now, take a look at this gorgeous 80s metal hair...
