Main article: New wave music

The following is a list of music acts that began late 1970s through the middle 1980s that were new wave acts or had some elements of the genre in their music.

Individual members of new wave groups are not listed unless their solo work has had elements of new wave music. Band members often work on solo projects because they want to explore different music styles. Also not listed are acts associated with the resurgences and revivals of the genre that have occurred from the 1990s onward. Acts associated with these revivals are found in the List of post-punk revival bands article.

Groups and artists with aliases are listed by the first letter in their name, and individuals are listed by their surname.
