Simple Minds, the Glaswegian rock stalwarts have been making brilliant anthemic music for three decades.
Simple Minds had their greatest worldwide popularity from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s. The band, from the south side of Glasgow, produced a handful of critically acclaimed albums in the early 1980s, and later went on to produce some politically inspired and critically praised work.
Simple Minds have secured a string of successful hit singles. Their best known hit may be their no. 1 worldwide hit single ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ in 1985, from the soundtrack of the classic 80’s John Hughes movie, The Breakfast Club. But they have accumulated an extensive and formidable back catalogue of rock anthems in the years since. In fact, Simple Minds have sold more than 40 millions albums worldwide since 1979.
