Rhetty for History has collected a list of “forgotten fads” from the 1980s. While he calls them “forgotten” I think a lot of people still remember them all, and some of them are still around!
The list contains boom boxes, break dancing, Rubik’s Cube, Pac-Man, parachute pants, MTV, Swatch watches, and absurd and fantastic hairdos.
The 1980s was a special decade especially for those that experienced it. there were many items that changed the world forever. Some of these may be long gone, but you never know when they’ll reappear. Just like the mullet, the decade will never truly die.
