Do You Know The 80s

It was a decade of action movies, "hair metal" and Magic Johnson. And don't forget Boy George. The 80s are making a comeback. "Miami Vice" was a movie, Duran Duran has got back together and who knows, we may see acid washed jeans on the streets and sidewalks again soon. (Come to think of it. I always liked seeing girls in their acid washed denum. So maybe it *WILL* make a comeback!)

But how well do you know the 80s? Were you there or did you just catch them on VH1? Take this quiz and find out! Hey, and no going to Google to cheat. That'll mean no "Head of the Class" or "21 Jump Street" for you tonight!
