* ItsPersonal: A white British pop band deciding to cover Grandmaster Flash's gritty proto-rap hit "White Lines" seems to be a ridiculous exercise in poor taste...until one remembers that the band had numerous struggles with cocaine abuse. John Taylor's cocaine problems were so bad they nearly killed him and broke the band apart. In light of that, it appears they picked the most blatant [[TheVillainSucksSong "fuck you" song about the drug to vent some anger]].

Several of the band's contemporaries, including Music/TheBangles, Music/EltonJohn, Music/KylieMinogue and Paul Young, have named themselves fans of the band's stylish, uplifting pop. Simon [=LeBon=] described the group as "the band to dance to [[WorldWarIII when the bomb drops]]". Successors like BarenakedLadies, Beck, Jonathan Davis of Music/{{Korn}}, The Bravery, Gwen Stefani and Pink have all cited Duran Duran as a key band in their formative years. The newest crop of performers to name Duran Duran as influences include Dido, Franz Ferdinand, Panic! at the Disco, Lostprophets (who took their name from the title of a Duran Duran bootleg tape), Goldfrapp and TheKillers, and ScissorSisters, who first came to wide notice while touring as DD's opening act.
