Duran Duran is the first band that could be the first MTV superstar. Duran Duran was an example which appeared in a time when rock music was flourishing. At first, the band members’ hairstyles and leather trousers had received more attention than their music. The band was one of the fashionable at the early time of its formation. Duran Duran is a rock band that was inspired by Eurodisco of Japan and David Bowie's androgyny. When the band released its first debut in 1981, it received just an underground success. The band released “Seven & The Ragged Tiger” after a few years and the band earned huge success. It could climb up to number one on the hit list.
