    The hippie generation saw the 80's as one of the worst decades of the late 20th century. BUT we all know that simply is not true. The 80's were a time of magical films, questionable fashion, one hit wonders and all around good times.

    So share with us something great from the 80's! I'll start with someone we all know and love...

    Ah, the 80's. Like the 70's, I wasn't alive for them, but I still love 'em.

    But the 90's were the best.

    My first ejaculation. :oops:

    Actually, that might have been 1990. Can't really remember.

    I thought the 80's sucked ass, the 90's were better in my memory. Better music, better fashion, better movies, games, etc.

    I would say both the 90s and 80s sucked for fashion. The late 50s/early 60s had the best fashion. Thankfully, it's making a comeback. I'd say for fashion, right now is pretty awesome. Especially at Banana Republic.

    Yeah...that's like celebrating because you found a piece of corn in a turd. What about the first Star Wars? Jaws? I guess the 70's were amazing too.

    And let's not forget that the 80's gave us wonderful things such as The Challenger Space Mission, The Cold War, and A.I.D.S.

    What? No love for the 80's? Guys, the 80's were amazing. Sure fashion was awful, but when else was a mullet acceptable by all classes, peoples and creeds?

    Making mix tapes, playing NES and riding my BMX bike everywhere. The movies were outlandish but they were amazing, the music still is some of my favorite, and it's just an amazing period. The cartoons are to this day some of the best: GI Joe, Transformers, Thundercats. The movies were epic: Indiana Jones movies, Airplane!, Fletch, This is Spinal Tap, Stand By Me.
    TV shows were awesome: A-Team, MacGyver, The Wonder Years.

    Get with it.

    You guys are acting like chicks at an 80's Party. OMG! I love this cliche song that I only like because it screams "eighties!"

    I'd be curious to know your ages. I'm one of the older guys here and I was born in '87. I love a lot of things from the 80's but I don't pretend like I was having a blast during them. I was a toddler.

    Ah the 80s. I remember the best, a lot of which has already been put forth, and the worst; being the tail end of the Cold War, I remember me and my friends being afraid of Russia and nuclear missles. Mostly good memories though.

    I was born in 1979. My earliest 80s memory was being taken to see E.T. One of my saddest was watching my mom cry when Challenger exploded.

    80's cartoons were the pinnacle of toyetic television. Every single one was based on a toy. Every single one.

    I was born in '77. My earliest 80's memory was firing up my Atari 2600 for the first time.
