The (Start Of A) “Listen” Soundtrack

I spend a lot of time listening to music related to this project. It’s kind of necessary when one is trying to chronicle this period in NE Ohio music. My main means of listening is via my Apple Music account (which is @Chris_Noga if you have an Apple Music account and want to listen to the playlist) that allows me to upload my collection and play it from just about anywhere on a PC or my iPhone. Very convenient. The playlist I created is below. The only rule I had for this particular list was only ONE song per artist/band which made it particularly challenging in some cases. Read through my playlist (it runs chronologically from 1985 to 2000) and tell me who I missed and should be added or what song better represents a band already in this playlist (meaning this list will be fluid and subject to changes):
