What was the coolest decade

Page 2 of 2

Maybe I'm being biased, is this is the way it was for me, but I think the 80s were perfect for being a kid and the 90s were perfect for being a teen.

The 80s had the toys and games, the cartoons, the films, and was arguably the best time for pop music, by which I mean genuinely good popular music which was accessible to everyone.

The 90s had Britpop, dance music that was both listenable and likeable, PlayStation, and a wonderful, dominant United

Speaking of being cool, the 90s was the decade where this actually was a thing. I don't see people trying to be cool these days, just goofy.

I think of 'cool' as a late 80s/early 90s thing. Maybe after that, the big corporations cottoned on to the value of cool and co-opted it, while consciously uncool alternative cultures came to the fore. Both of these things meant 'cool' became less... cool.

For all that, it must have been a pretty scary time as well.

I know we're living through some crazy times at the moment, but in the 60s you had the building of the Berlin Wall; the Cuban Missile Crisis and the constant threat of nuclear war; the Vietnam war; JFK, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr and Robert F Kennedy all assassinated; and major race riots across the US in 1967.

I don't think the UK had the same social tensions.

Mods, Swinging London, winning the World Cup, the birth of the mini-skirt, the 'White Heat of Technology'.
