    80 Reasons Why the 80s Ruled

    The only decade better than the 90s. Not by a large margin, but the 1980s were still the greatest decade ever. You know it's true, even if you weren't alive to experience it.

    So help come up with 80 reasons why the 80s were totally awesome. Also give some explanation for your choices.


    1. WWF. This was the best fed of the 80s. NWA/WCW was great and felt more realistic,, but the WWF had more memorable characters and the best tag team division ever (Hart Foundation, Demolition, Rockers, British Bulldogs, Brain Busters, Islanders, Killer Bees, and many more).

    2. 80s Music Videos. Video may have killed the radio star, but at least we still had creative music videos back then. There was so much variety too, unlike now where it's either dance/pop, hip hop, or whinny rock.

    3. Synthesizers. You can say that they were overused in the 80s, but they were awesome. Those keyboard guitars were awesome, and you know it. Tears for Fears are far better than your current pop acts like Katy Perry. No comparison.

    4. The Brat Pack. The Breakfast Club. 'Nuff said.

    5. Voltron. How could you not like 80s anime shows?

    Chuck Taylors - The shoe

    Teddy F*cking Ruxpin - the toy/doll that haunted young lads dreams.

    Depeche Mode- absolute brilliance

    John Rambo - Murdock.... I'm coming to get you

    Trapper Keepers - stylin and proflin in the hallways of school.

    Gremlins - Don't get water on them and DON'T ever feed them after midnight.

    Great times indeed!

    Cam was conceived.

    Golden age of hip hop, with Boogie Down Productions and the Juice Crew feuding, LL Cool J being the leader of the show keeping you on the go, and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five rapping about broken glass everywhere.

    Miami Vice.

    Iran-Contra (would've made for interesting news watching at the time).

    I know its an action movie and they've already been counted, but Big Trouble in Little China should get its own entry on the list for how awesome it is.

    26. Comic Books. People say the 90s were when comics were dark, but the 80s had a nice mix. Ninja Turtles comics were really violent, Marvel was pretty twisted (Kraven the Hunter). Same with DC Comics (death of Jason Todd, the second Robin).

    27. Knight Rider. Great show. Talking cars, leather jackets, awesome.

    28. Computers. The industry was taking off.

    29. TV commercials. Yes, that sounds really weird, but TV commercials used to be entertaining. Where's the beef? Max Headroom. All cool. Micro Machines guy that talked very fast. Check this one out Zelda II: The Adventure of Link TV Ad - YouTube

    30. 21 Jump Street. Do not pay money to see the new movie. Watch the old show. Classic television.

    31. Fall of the Berlin Wall. Happened in 1989. End of the Cold War as far as I'm concerned, but it didn't officially end until the early 90s.

    You guys are giving up too easily. More reminders of the 80s greatness.

    33. Converse High Tops. They were popular shoes in the 80s. There was a war between those shoes, Air Jordans, and Adidas.

    34. The Cosby Show. That show ruled. Dr. Huxtable, Denise, and Theo were the best characters.

    35. Pee Wee. Before he became a creep. Pee Wee's Big Adventure is still an excellent movie. He had a TV series.

    36. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. A most excellent movie. You can't go wrong with time traveling movies in the 80s.

    37. Back to the Future. I already said you can't go wrong with time traveling movies.

    38. Ernest P. Worrell. He had a TV show that was too sick to watch, but his movies were funny back then.

    39. Return of the Jedi. Nuff said. You can add all the other Star Wars related stuff, like Droids cartoon, Ewoks movies, and everything else.

    40. Skateboarding. It was popular. Bones Brigade, skate punk music, Vision
