1. is "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" by AC/DC

Actually, this lyric was from "Aqualung", but it isn't the song you were thinking of. :-\\
The only 80s British band I can think of that had brothers in it was Spandau Ballet. Is it by any chance them? Are they anywhere on this quiz? ???

Hi Gis

#10 is Spandau Ballet's debut hit, "To Cut A Long Story Short". I loved this song but it all went downhill for the Spands after this, IMHO.

#22 must be The Darkness featuring brothers Dan and Justin Hawkins but I don't know the song.
