The 80s? Let's see. Disco music. Well not really music but noise.Probably what made country music popular. 21% mortgages. WOrst economic time since 1934. ANti pollution equipment on cars that cut economy from 20+ MPG to 10MPG.At the same time gas prices doubled. FUn times.

I lived it.
The music was shit. Culture Club, Micheal Jackson begining to go white, Duran Duran, Wham, Cindy Lauper.
Don't remember the movies, but 70's porn was better.

Yes, you are an aging old windbag, but don't let that stop you.

Been there, 1974 Torino. Camping in Algonquin Park. Good times.

Deep Purple in Toronto, my ears have never forgiven me for that one.

Yeah, no internet, no SJW nonsense, no mass 3rd world immigration.
Quite the difference.
We've done well, our country since then.

Not.

The Winnipeg Jets of 75-78 were the best club team of the 70's and would have beaten the Habs if the Habs had the balls to play them. They didn't of course.

Rolling Stone ranked London Calling by the Clash as the best album of the 1980s. It was released in December 1979.

The 80s didn't rock...at least nothing compared to the 60s and 70s.
