Duran Duran released their second album Rio on May 10, 1982. Even decades after its release, Rio can still be found at the intersection of style and substance. It’s pop/rock perfection in a lean nine-track package that can still cause the masses to dance their asses off while also finding time for introspection.
Perhaps the prime examples of the album’s mix of style and substance came with its music videos, which thanks to the launch of MTV, helped catapult Duran Duran to stardom not just in the United State but worldwide.
To celebrate the anniversary of this album and Duran Duran's upcoming induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, here are the seven music videos from Rio ranked.
