dekady: 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000
Grupa Simple Minds została założona w Glasgow w 1978 roku. Ich ewolucja muzyczna jest imponująca - zaczynali grając postpunkowego art-rocka inspirowanego m. in. Roxy Music, a skończyli na perfekcyjnym pop rocku w stylu U2.

Pierwsze albumy zmierzające w stronę późniejszego wizerunku grupy nosiły tytuły "Sons and Fascination" oraz "Sister Feelings Call". Po pierwszych sukcesach Jim Kerr poślubił wokalistkę zespołu Pretenders, Chrissie Hynde. Simple Minds podbiło USA oraz resztę świata hitem "Don't You (Forget About Me)". Zespół cały czas aktynie działa na rynku fonograficznym. Ich ostatni album ukazał się w 2003 roku i nosi tytuł "Our Secrets Are The Same".
