Wish you could find a place to show-off your funky platform shoes? Do you find yourself breaking out that "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack every so often -- and still remember all the words? See how much you remember from the decade that gave us Pet Rocks, 8-tracks and shag carpet with our '70s quiz!
Sandwiched between the free-loving community spirit of the '60s and the me-me-me vibe of the '80s was the 1970's -- a transitional time for society and culture, with a flavor all its own.
While the '60s get all the pop culture credit thanks to bands like The Beatles and the Stones, there was no shortage of creative talent in the decade that followed. American folk rock and singer-songwriters dominated the charts, giving rise to songs like "American Pie" and "Imagine." At the theaters, movie fans were treated to such classics as "The Godfather," "The Exorcist," "Jaws" and a little sci-fi flick called "Star Wars," which came out in 1977.
Disco culture also dominated the later part of the '70s, and no matter how you feel about bell bottoms and leisure suits today, there's no question that the era came with some great tunes, from "I Will Survive," to "Stayin' Alive."
The '70s also represented a changing tide in civil rights with the passage of Roe v. Wade in '73 and rising acceptance of gay culture.
