Saying stuff like "awesome!" and "totally rad!", and adults not having a clue what we were saying. And then we'd say something like, "Ugh, you are like so lame." :roll:

The mullet hairdo. I likes the cloths of the 80's and the layered hairdos - but not the mullet. Loved the music especially!! ! :D

1980: The Miracle on Ice
Jimmy Carter boycotting the Olympic Games in Moscow

However, the 1980 Olympics also were the Games of Sebastian Coe and Miruts Yifter. I didn't get to see either because there was no coverage of the Games on television that year.

^ Yes, not everything about the 80's was good, like the cold war and HIV. I've personally always been more of a Pepsi person.

Speaking of which, the "Pepsi Generation" commercials with Micheal Jackson, and hearing how his hair was accidentally set on fire.

When the new Coke came out sometime in 1985, people couldn't get the old Coke for four months. The people were angry that the company decided to change the formula which had been around for almost 100 years. In fact, the staff at the headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia had to hire people to handle the thousands of angry calls that were coming in every day. Eventually, they ultimately decided to bring back the original beverage back, now calling it Coca-Cola Classic.
