On This Day In 1980 Genesis Embraced The 80s With 'Duke'

Released on this day in 1980, Duke is the tenth studio album by Genesis. The album was a return to form after a period of inactivity for the band in early 1979 that included Phil Collins moving to Vancouver in an effort to salvage his failing first marriage, while Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford recorded solo albums. Featuring a more commercially accessible sound, singles like "Turn It On Again", "Duchess", and "Misunderstanding" became radio hits, giving the band its first No. 1 album in the UK charts and has since been certified Platinum in both the UK and U.S. In honor of the anniversary, check out a few classic videos from that era, below.
