While New Wave and post-punk were pretty much interchangeable terms in 1977, by the early ‘80s, the more avant-garde, harder-edged bands divided off into post-punk, and New Wave was the realm of synth-driven pop. One of the first misconceptions to fall by the wayside will be the notion that new wave/punk rock is raw, offensive, noncommercial music, wrote Greg Shaw in a 1978 issue of Billboard 49. The Vapors – New Clear Days (1980) British new wavers The Vapors are often looked at as one-hit wonders with their hit single Turning Japanese, a song whose meaning was up for debate upon its release in 1980 when the video was in constant rotation on MT. But for those who bothered to listen beyond the opening title track, Rip It Up was an overlooked post-punk gem with funk rhythms, angular guitars and catchy melodies.

New wave is a genre encompassing numerous pop-oriented music styles popular in the late 1970s and the 1980s with ties to mid-1970s punk rock. New wave moved away from traditional blues and rock and roll sounds to create rock music (early new wave) or pop music (later) that incorporated disco, mod, and electronic music. Initially new wave was similar to punk rock, before becoming a distinct genre. It subsequently engendered subgenres and fusions, including synth-pop.
As with the post-punk and new wave bands of the late '70s and early '80s, there was a lot of diversity in the approaches of the post-punk/new wave revivalists, ranging from atonal scrap heaps (Liars) to hyper-melodic pop songs (the Sounds).
The early post-punk vanguard was represented by groups such as Siouxsie and the Banshees, Wire, Magazine, Gang of Four, Public Image Ltd, the Pop Group, Joy Division, Throbbing Gristle, the Slits, Cabaret Voltaire, the Cure, the Fall, Au Pairs, Talking Heads and Pere Ubu. The movement was closely related to the development of ancillary genres such as gothic rock, neo-psychedelia . By the mid 1980s, post-punk had dissipated while providing the impetus for the New Pop movement as well much subsequent alternative and independent music. YouTube Encyclopedic.
