"Take Me I'm Yours"
Why they rock: They're a classic long-tail story, selling out Madison Square Garden in 1982, 1987, and 1989, even though they never broke Top 40 radio. Despite their low
profile, Dire Straits, U2, Simple Minds, the Jam, and Bon Jovi have all opened for the band.
Bottom line: Their very brief tour in small venues grossed nearly $1 million
