In 1987 I was nearing the end of my freshman year of high school. Or just starting my sophomore year, depending on which part of the year we’re talking about. It was a time of bad fashion (that is sadly making a comeback), big hair that required lots and lots of Aqua Net, and dirt rock as well as glamor rock saturated the airwaves. Those of us that grew up in that era tend to look back on it with equal parts terror and appreciation. Terror because we’re scared pictures from that time will make their way to Facebook and appreciation because even though the music was bad, it was oh so good.
