The greatest decade in American culture and media. During this time, major medical advances were made, including successful antibiotics and the MRI. Some of the greatest bands ever were born in this 10-year era. Bands such as Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Mike and The Mechanics
, and Tears For Fears. Meanwhile, other bands that had already been formed became even more popular and successful. These include Chicago, Genesis, The Moody Blues
, The Cars, REO Speedwagon, and Journey.
Some of the greatest movies ever were also produced during this time period. 80s Movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Uncle Buck, The Breakfast Club, Beverly Hills Cop, Rainmain, Back To The Future, Ghostbusters, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
, and Glory will forever be enshrined as some of the most awesome films ever made.
I consider myself to be a "Child of The 80s
", being born in February 1986. I grew up on the music of the mid and late 80s, as well as the early 90s
. I still get great enjoyment from watching movies
from that era. The culture, music, and TV of today sure makes me long for the 80s again; today's culture and media is very shitty in my opinion.
