One for the Gen Xers: how much do you remember about the 80s?

About This Quiz

The 80s was all about the big hair, pegged jeans, mullets, and Doctor Martens boots. But it was also a time of huge social and technological change and the last decade before the internet became the way to steal music and watch questionable video content. Back then, if you wanted to watch a movie, you'd slide a huge plastic cartridge cassette into a player and fast forward to your favorite bits. And if you wanted to take your music on the go with you, you'd take a cassette tape that sounded like it had been recorded next to a toilet cistern after flushing. But, these technologies meant freedom and we should never laugh at them. If you of school age at the beginning of the 80s, you're most likely a member of Generation X - the play hard/work hard generation. GenX was immortalised by visionary author, Douglas Coupland, who recognised that Generation X would take to the fields en mass and fall in love with each other to repetitive beats. And that we did. What do you recall about the 80s? This fun quiz will test your mettle and find out how much attention you were paying in that great decade of change, the 1980s.
