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 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.

* Bowdlerise: Did you know there was a time when the music video "Girls on Film" was too steamy and "Wild Boys" was too violent and had to be censored?

The group were generally considered part of the New Romantic scene, with other style-and-dance bands such as SpandauBallet, Japan and Music/{{ABC}}. In 1980, they recorded two demo tapes and performed in clubs around Birmingham and London. In late 1980, when touring as an opening act for Hazel O'Connor, the band attracted critical attention, resulting in a bidding war between the record companies EMI and Phonogram Records. "A certain patriotism" toward the label of Music/TheBeatles led them to sign with EMI in December. However, Nick Rhodes said in a 1998 interview with Deluxe magazine, that the band felt they were "appallingly ripped off" by the EMI contract.

* TheRival: The music press developed a sort of friendly rivalry between Duran Duran and SpandauBallet, although members of both groups have said that they enjoyed listening to each others' records.

Not to be confused with the creature named "Duran" in Anime/{{Mai-HiME}} (who was named after a dog who was named after the band). Southeast Asian tropers, they are not ''Film/DurianDurian'', either.
