Sometimes a rock band hit with a softer tune. The next top 20 for them was already 1984 and Jump. Blondie came sorta close with the #1 Call Me. But nothing by Led Zep, Rainbow, AC/DC, etc.

Stations just wouldn't play them. In the 80's where a lot of the albums are just singles with filler, they did release most of the right songs. Still plenty of exceptions.
