About the Site
Each decade has its own charms and peculiarities, and “In The 1980s” is no exception. Those of us who lived through the 1980s witnessed an exploding music scene, a plethora of fantastic television shows and movies and a strengthening American economy. In The 1980s is a pop culture website devoted to all things that occurred in the 80s. Although browsing through this website may bring you some nostalgia, we also hope it adds to your understanding of this awesome decade!
Navigating the Site
We have made it easy for visitors to peruse for articles that interest them. We have broken down the decade into four broad subjects that should cover everything the 1980s had to offer. Here are our categories:
Music: 1980s music was the best! We had the second British invasion with groups such as Duran Duran and Simple Minds owning the airwaves. Hard Rock was at its peak with such great bands like Def Leppard, Journey and Metallica. This category offers insights to these bands, their music and the 80s music scene in general.
Entertainment: Is there anybody left who has not seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Cheers and Married With Children? And who could forget Andrew Dice Clay? This category covers all the great movies, TV shows and celebrities of the decade.
Fads: What was trendy in the 1980s? This category will cover it all. Topics such as the Rubik’s Cube craze and the Pac Man video game can be found here. This section will also include fashion trends, what was hip, what wasn’t and an 80s slang glossary.
Events: A lot of historically pivotal moments happened in the 1980s. There was the assassination attempt against President Ronald Reagan. We saw the space shuttle Challenger explode on national TV and witnessed the Berlin Wall finally being taken down. We promise to offer a lot of interesting articles – not only on these famous events, but also some interestingly obscure ones as well.
