80s MUSIC and THE MEMEsJohn Bon Jovi is loved, I mean loved, by woman worldwide. So, this meme really hits home with the many fans of JBJ. Bon Jovi could put his good looks to good use. I know I'd be in that line up...to help solve world hunger. Ya, that's it.
I'm a big reader. Not a big reader of 80s books, but, more in the vein of YA (the cool sounding acronym for TEEN books) and SCIFI (which means cool). I'm assuming most of you are illiterate and therefore will recognize this next meme from the movie version of Hunger Games. It's the baker's son...kneading bread...that's funny...a 'Cheap Trick' if you may! Now I'm hilarious!
The next meme is funny b/c it's a 50s mom cranking AC/DC in her Chevy. The only thing that would make this funnier would be a swear word.
Now, onto 80s movies. What would happen if you took the Busters out of Ghostbusters...you get this disaster...
Now, what if you asked a group of people, 'who you gonna call'...and they didn't answer the way you wanted what would you do? Ectoplasm them?
Now, if you are a true '80s person' what would you do if you saw this...
You invert your car and flash everyone the 'bird' right? Right Goose?
Now, back to music. If you are a true '80s person' you would look at this Hall & Oates cover and think nothing of it. If you are not an '80s person', you would think WTF is that?!
And, if you are an '80s person' you will laugh at this next meme...and then stare at the cover art, which is actually very strange - a nude woman wearing a backpack? What the...
Again, if you are a true '80s person' you will look at this next pic and think...WTF? Ok, you'll think the same thing if you are not an 80s person. I mean come on: ET & MJ!
Everyone, even us '80s people', will get a laugh out of these pics...and if you don't then please leave.
Now, you may return to your glamour shots with the dog.

MORE FUN 80s MEMES
You know it's true - when someone asks who your fav band is do you say "Bruno Mars"? No, you say, Scorpions or Duran Duran or even Stevie Wonder!
Who wants plain black yoga pants when you can have some style? 80s style.
I think it was a sign.
For you science nerds - Hg is Mercury.
A close substitute is early 90s sportz jams.
Red Red Wine. One of those earworms (a song that gets stuck in my head)
Def makes it 'great'
Must have been casual Friday?
Vampires used to be scary.

HALL AND OATES - FUNNIES
Or hauling oats as I call them...what? Common mistake.
I shouldn't joke, these guys are awesome. They are one of the top selling duos of all time with 40 or 50 million albums sold. They have chart toppers like Rich Girl, Man Eater, I Can't Go For That, Private Eyes, Kiss is on my list, Out...of...touch...and I'm out of breath!
Even though they are wicked cool song writers (even Hipsters like them!) they have a hilarious catalogue of bad photos...that just invite memes.
To me, John Oates and Tom Selleck are those classic 80s moustache guys - the connection there, at least for me, is Three Men and a Baby! Remember that movie? Tom was in it, and so was the Hall & Oates song You Make My Dreams Come True. To stretch this connection further how about this meme?
Private investigator (aka Private 'I') Magnum PI is watching you?
I love explaining jokes.
If you follow NHL hockey you'll think this is a hoot - in the early 90s Brett Hull and Adam Oates played together, in other words, Hull & Oates!!!
Not sure who had the better hair Hall & Oates or Hull & Oates?
All 80s hair and moustache jokes aside, these guys are still playing together to this day. In fact, they are planning on touring with Tears for Fears this summer - warm up the ambulance eh?

I WANNA ROCK
I remember this white cassette - the Twisted Sister cassette!
I would play We're Not Going To Take It or I Wanna Rock on a little cassette player while I sat in my bedroom window. When people would walk by I would up the volume (sometimes to 11) until they looked over at me. Ah, a rebel without a cause at age 7. An annoying little rebel :) Funny to look back on now.
It turns out Twisted Sister is funny to look back on too. Not just the overdressed costumed drag/apocalyptic caveman that Dee Snider was...
First, did you know they are from Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey...that's a funny name for a place.
Second, they were often labeled as 'Glam Rock'. Makes sense to me, they did dress up in lots of extravagant costumes. But, Dee Snider was always offended by this. Really? Well, I guess he does have a point, they didn't use glitter or shiny sequins or anything 'glammy' like that...I'm stretching here guys.
|The fashion sense of Twisted Sister|
Third, they had awesome nicknames. Here goes...
Daniel Snider - DEE (who would have known his 'real' name was Daniel)
Mark Mendoza - THE ANIMAL (Bass player and 'animal'? Oh, sarcasm!)
Eddie Ojeda - FINGERS (A guitarist named 'fingers'...original)
Michael Portnoy - MIKE (The poor drummer must have gotten his nickname after all the creative juice had been drunk?)
FINGERS is not only hot on the guitar, but, he is hot on sauce...as in he makes hot sauce now. You can buy it online at twistedhotsauce.com. What a funny second career eh?
Twisted Sister was such a band of the times eh? Excessive outfits, excessive music, excessive videos...ah, to be in the 80s again! Not in our 80s, but, back in the decade of the 80s...
