It was too good to last, the law of averages, and probably the reason everything fucking sucks so much now.
Those of us who are children of the 80s, can think of no better time! The movies and music are better than any other time. My favorite songs and movies are all from that era. But that is when I was in high school and those things all trigger memories for me. That is the reason and not the quality of the products during that period.

Heard a lot about AIDS and crack while growing up in the 80's. Arnold, Stallone, Van Halen 1984 and mostly pre 1986 horror made it all good though... and of course Nintendo.

I was a teenager during the 80s, and I think it was a great decade. We had numerous one hit wonders, Fast Times At Ridgemont High came out in 1982, Friday the 13th, which came out in 1980, Miami Vice from 1984-1989, which the last year was okay, but the first 4 years, I was in High School, Knight Rider, Greatest American Hero, the fashion back then was cool, but some of it is laughable now. My brother had one of those Michael Jackson jackets from Thriller, it was red, with all those zippers, and as I type my cat, SamDean Winchester-Smith is in my lap, just being a goofball. Sometimes I relive the 80s, every now and then, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, I could go on and on. Now my cat is about to go to sleep, and yes, I named him at my favorite 2 characters from Supernatural. And, yes, I know it's sad, but I'm a huge fan of Supernatural. I actually call my cat Sammy more than anything.

movies and concerts were cheaper... and cars were more affordable... and movie ads were more creative and had some thought and good artwork rather than just have the whole cast on the poster... Fast food tasted better too...

I agree about the fast foot tasting better. From about 1978, until 1985, me, my mom, and my brother would go to at least one movie a week, and it was usually a horror film.

I think it does not taste the same because people eat it so damn regularly, the more accustomed you get to a taste to more likely you are to get burnt on it.
I love broiled lobster but wouldn't want to eat it 4-5 times a week.
Eating at a fast food joint when I was younger was reserved for special occasions, like a vacation or a birthday otherwise it was home cooking.
Fast food was a treat back then, not a daily ritual. Moderation is what made it special, and obviously there were less obesity related issues back then IMO.
