If You Could Be A Teenager In Any Decade...

...which one would it be?

I would love to have been a teen in the 50's...I think I've watched too many episodes of Happy Days. I love the clothes, I love the music...I think I could have really gotten into all that.

I pick the 80s because I love 80s music. U2 is of course has a fairly large influence on this choice, it would have been great to have been old enough to appreciate the joshua tree when it originally came out (I was born in '82). Even if I wasn't a U2 fan I would still pick the 80s, they amuse me to no end.

I would say either the 80s for reasons that have already been mentioned or the late 60s/early 70s. Things just seemed so much more interesting back then- the 90s were boring in comparison.

I wish I was a bit older in the 80's......

I wanted a Jennifer Beals Flashdance type sweatshirt, but my mom wouldn't let me get one

I did however, have leg warmers (rainbow colored)

I'd have to say the 70's. I was a kid in the 70's and REALLY wished I was a teenager...the clothes seemed really cool and the music was great. Things were a lot simpler then too.

I became a teenager in 1980 and other than discovering U2, I didn't like much about that decade. The clothes were really ugly and most of the music was crap. It seemed like things got really complicated and confusing in the 80's...I'd pass on doing it over again.
