    As one who grew up in Nebraska in the 80's, I beg to differ. A mullet with a rat tail was even cooler.[​IMG] I'm thinking of sporting the look again.

    This list is trying to cater to both Gen-X'ers and those punks from the 90's. I'm sorry but there is a definite line between my MTV generation (as in MUSIC television) and those poser, wannabe's from the 90's.:p) [​IMG]

    That's all I know, although I don't think NKOTB nor mullets were ever cool. The other stuff I have no clue about.

    You owned a "Members Only" jacket.

    You owned a "Def Leppard" t-shirt (preferably with no sleeves)

    You ripped holes in your new jeans (and made sure they were frayed!)- cutting the legs off your jeans and/or putting them in the washer with bleach also qualifies.

    You remember the words to "Eye of the Tiger" and you know who the hell "Survivor" was.

    You listened to Dr. Demento.

    My Sharona!

    My Bologna!

    Guilty as charged :b


    You took desecration of your "PeeChee" folder very seriously.

    You air guitar'd to every song you could.

    You played sessions of 'flinch' that would last semesters.

    Ah, the memories.....

    This thing looks like a job application for a "Family Guy" writer. Notice that "you can write comedy" is nowhere on the list.

    As soon as I read Number 55 I started "singing" that song in my head (seeing if I actually knew the words after hearing the song & seeing the video constantly during the time). I stopped after the beginning chorus to return reading the rest of the list then got nabbed with Number 56. :b
