The raddest, baddest decade of Thatcher, Regan, Pacman and The Karate Kid, the eighties was the decade when MTV ensured video killed the radio star, punk came into its own and the King of Pop moon walked his way into becoming the biggest entertainer of the decade. Everyone was going giddy for glam and the Brat Pack brought us classic coming of age films like The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink. It was the decade when it was acceptable for men to have longer hair then women, when heavy metal thrived, MC Hammers outfit made one of the most controversial fashion statements known to mankind.
