Oi! the second BTTF is epically awesome, ya hear! AWESOME!
The second BTTF, in my opinion, is mostly worth it for the 2015 sequence.
Also: Indiana Jones, The Princess Bride, the first two Evil Dead movies, Blade Runner, the rise of Thrash Metal, the glory days of the NES, and a zillion other things I can't remember.
I dunno, I liked alternate!1984.
Alternate!1985, I think you mean. And yes, that was cool too.
Huh, need to rewatch it...
Anyway, if we're talking music, then Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The eighties had Michael Jackson, back when he was still good.
I'm mostly interested in the metal. The 80s had Metallica back when they were good.
It was the synthesizer era for Rush which is actually my favorite. <— Unpopular opinion
The 80s were the first major decade I lived through. Captain Power and Thundercats were my favorite shows from that time period, and I had a good amount of toys from that time. The late 80s were when I first ended up getting into video games, from the old Atari 2600 back at my aunt's place to my very first NES, which I played from late 80s to early 90s. I wouldn't get into the ninja craze until the early 90s with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Ninja Gaiden games for the NES, and Mortal Kombat. About the only 80s kid thing that I didn't really get into was Dungeons And Dragons (that would come much later around the turn of the millennium).

Pat Benatar is responsible for one of my favorite cheesy songs. Also, I have had "Hazy Shade of Winter" stuck in my head for three days straight. I'll be sitting on the bus on the way home from work and be all "Look around! Leaves are brown! There's a patch of snow on the ground!"
Flock Of Seagulls.
Most of my favorite musicians that lived through the 80s kinda sorta sucked during this decade, but there are quite a few singles that I love. Video Killed The Radio Star, Come On Eileen, 99 Luftballoons, to name a few.
Anyone here remember Bravestarr, Saber Rider And The Star Sheriffs, and last but certainly not least, Adventures Of The Galaxy Rangers? Good stuff.
Kinda a shame that the west stopped making Space Western cartoons. I miss my robotic horsie-riding space sheriffs.

My sister used to like Bravestarr, I think. I never did.
I liked Inspector Gadget, The Real Ghostbusters, and Transformers.
When I think living through the 80s, I think of wilderness...that's because during said decade I was living on a tiny island in the middle of the Puget Sound. Yeah, no electricity means no pop culture unfortunately. I remember helping my dad cook pancakes on a cast-iron wood fired stove, feeding chickens, and trying to catch this monstrous big bullfrog that lived in my mom's garden.
I also remember riding in a bush-plane to go to school, surviving a storm at sea (I wet my pants I'm sure, I get slack cut for being 5 years old), watching a 900 lb steer try and kill my dad (my parents tried to raise their own beef...it did not end well) and the best damn fireworks display ever (which included dynamite).
Speaking of dynamite, my dad almost destroyed our house with it back in 1985. Awesome in hindsight, scary at the time.
The 80s were somewhat different for me, I'd wager.
Lostalgia for the pop culture of the era. Same as I have for a lot of things.
The music in particular. OMD and Blue Nile are amongst my favorite bands of all time.
Of Mexican Descent?
Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark was what that one stood for, I think.
Joan of Arc piloting Enola Gay. What a decade.
Ivy: Morven has it. Mostly a generic band, made one awesome album by name of Dazzle Ships.
Since I was a kid at the time all I cared about was toys. Our toys took other generations' toys to the pirate ship and made them pick up the soap! G.I. Joe and Hotwheels FTW!
I miss the 80's...I was born in 89 and grew up with reruns and KSHE 95. why does music suck now?
