|Year / Decade Made|
Duran Duran formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England. After a brief period of uncertainty for popularity in the United States, the band eventually took off stateside, thanks in part to MTV. A re-release of the album, “Rio” in 1983, along with singles including “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Is There Something I Should Know?” rising up the charts helped to confirm the band’s popularity. The band still performs as of 2016 with many of the original members.
The photograph on this button appears to be from a 1983 magazine called "Trouser Press". The band was featured on the cover of their October 1983 issue, which also included a 5-page article singing praises of the recently re-released “Rio.”
