You don't have to have been young in the '80s to be totally '80s, but it sure doesn't hurt. The '80s were a decade that was totally cool and incredibly ridiculous all at once. During the '80s everyone thought they had it going on, but when you look back on that decade, you think maybe not so much. I mean people didn't even have the Internet and used landlines!
What about you, dude? Where did you fit in when it comes to the 80's? If you knew someone with a mullet and didn't make fun of them, you probably fit in just fine. Did you think Poison, Warrant, and other hair bands were cool? Have you ever rocked out with a boombox? Have you ever done any breakdancing while wearing Converse All-stars and a denim jacket?

If you grew a totally radical goatee, put on your friendship bracelet and then went downtown to play a little hacky-sack, then you probably either were a child of the '80s, or you were born in the wrong period. So how '80s are you? Take this quiz to find out. As soon you finish watching reruns of He-Man.
