Over the years, the 80s have gotten a pretty bad rap. Nowadays, they are often referred to as the Me-First decade or the Decade of Greed, in reference to the materialism and individualism that seemed to dominate the period. However, while it's true that the 80s were a decade of consumer culture, decadence and more more more, they were also a decade of innovation, technical advancements, and some of the most enduring pop culture ever made!

The question is, how much do you know about the decade of big hair, big shoulder pads and big parachute pants? If you think you know your Hacky Sacks from your Koosh Balls and your Miami Vice from your Magnum P.I, then this is the quiz for you! Prove your 80s street cred for bragging rights that last forever, or at least the ability to bug your friends with trivia next time you all watch Ferris Beuller's Day Off together!
