I am a Child of the 80s (meaning grew up, not born in, the 80s) and, IMO, the 80s were the best decade to come of age in. We had some of the best pop culture- movies like Back To The Future, Ghostbusters, A Christmas Story and all the John Hughes stuff; TV shows like Growing Pains, Who's The Boss?, Family Ties, and The A-Team and music, that while inferior to that of the 60s and 70s, saw the heydey of some great bands like Journey, Guns n Roses and Def Leoppard... Also, the 80s had just the right balance of innocence and technology- we still understood the concept of going outside to play, and using our imaginations- yet we also had Atari, Intellivision, arcade games and the advent of the home computer to keep us entertained. Plus, you could still ride your bike to the mall without being in too much danger, or go to school without being searched for weapons. So, being as objective as you can, which decade do ya'll think was the best to grow up in- and why??
