Prior to making waves as a solo artist, George Michael was a member of Wham!, the '80s British boy band famous for tunes like 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.'

In 1987, Michael released his infectious hit, 'Faith,' followed closely by 'I Want Your Sex.' Both songs were provocative and were released with appropriately sexy videos to match. Michael had effectively shaken that pesky boy band image by making a play for pop culture's more libidinous inclinations, and his instant success only affirmed his risky moves.
