It seems everywhere you go lately there's a retro celebration of the 80s, from record stores to radio stations to television specials to annoying 20 year olds that were born in 1984.

But the 80s kind of sucked.

All the good music and bands came out of the post-punk/new wave late 70s and baby boomers waxed poetic about their glory days at Woodstock as Generation X inherited their mess.

Other reasons the 80s sucked:

• Wang Chung
• Reagan
• Thatcher
• Those Short Circuit movies
• Feathered Hair
• Patrick Nagel
• Crack
• High School
