Gen X Memes For People Who Still Remember The 80s

The way people who never lived through the 80s see that era represented in media is quite inaccurate. If I didn’t know any better, I would think that in the 80s, everyone was wearing neon, leggings, tutus, and headbands at all times. In fact, I would’ve thought that attire was socially mandated. Luckily for me, I have been obsessed with the movie Heathers (1989) since I was 14 years old, so I’m quite acquainted with how boxy, and ugly 80s clothes could be. And don’t even get me started on 80s hair! Whenever I see a modern movie that supposedly takes place in the 1980s starring actresses with flat hair, it drives me up a wall. 80s hair is sacred and ugly and must be remembered exactly as it was. I was not lucky enough to be born early enough to experience the 80s for myself, but if you are one of the lucky few who were, these Gen X memes are sure to get the nostalgia pumping.
