Damn skippy. The '80s will never die (at least if I have anything to say about it). We may not be many, but there are a few of us "30-somethings" that still consider the '80s to be the heyday of "real music", deplore the advent of the Seattle Scene, and the depressing musical mood of the '90s...

The 90s: "Oh woe is me. I hate my miserable life. I think I'll blow my brains out."

The 80s: "Sex! Booze! Party all Niiiiiiiiiiiiiight!!!"

You can even hear it in the music itself:

The 90s: songs based on minor chords, guitars tuned down, stripped-back production, lead vocals sung primarily in lower range.

The 80s: wailing guitar solos, choruses based on major keys, layers upon layers of keyboards and backing vocals, lead vocalists screaming for all their worth.

As a mainstream musical decade, the '90s sucked moose balls (at least after about 1992 or so).

'Nuff said.
