Punk rock band from the 70's and 80's. Adam Ant (real name Stuart Goddard) formed Adam and the Ants in 1977 and quickly acquired a cult following. In 1979 the band hired Malcolm McClaren to help revamp their image and in 1980 released their successful album "Kings of the Wild Frontier". This was followed up almost immediately in 1981 by another successful album "Prince Charming" just before the Ants disbanded. Adam Ant became a solo artist in 1982 and released his most successful album yet "Friend or Foe". In the years that followed Adam Ant released more albums and appeared at Live Aid in 1985. Adam Ant also appeared in several films and TV shows.
