About This Quiz

When it comes to music, our favorites speak a lot to our personalities. From rock and roll to R&B, build an '80s playlist and we'll guess which high school clique you were in.

When it comes to the music of the 1980s, the songs and artists were iconic. Michael Jackson was solidifying his spot as the King of Pop. Madonna was singing about being a "Material Girl." Everyone was "Livin' on a Prayer" with Bon Jovi while Whitney Houston was "Saving All My Love for You." Although these songs might've been on your playlist, there was a long line of other hits.

If you were a fan of rock music, you were probably rocking out with Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard and Van Halen. For those into the smooth R&B tunes, your playlist carried Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and Sade. For the bright eyes who needed a bit of pop, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Jackson and Prince were easy favorites. For those listening to these songs, what does it say about your high school clique?

For the skaters, you were probably listening to hard rock and the immersion of New Wave. While "nerds" are known for their vast knowledge, this would probably spread into their massive affinity toward all genres. If you were an outcast, you might be listening to the obscure songs that a real appreciator of the arts would know. Which one of these are you?

Does your '80s music playlist prove you belong with the outcasts or the jocks? There's only one way to find out!
