For those of us who grew up in the 80s, we came of age in quite possibly the greatest decade ever.  The music, the fashion, the (then) cutting-age technology – it was all new and amazing.  Whether you were in the popular group, a jock, a nerd, valley girl, skater, hacker, loser or outcast, growing up was a real life Breakfast Club.

Today there are 80s-themed parties and events all the time, and those of us who grew up in the 80s generation can spot those who are dressing the part but didn’t actually live it as easily as spotting a flatlander skidding off the road with summer tires during winter.
