Only an Eighties kid can beat this totally rad pop culture quiz

Don't worry, this one won't eat your quarters.

Fire up some synth-pop and grab a New Coke. We're firing up the DeLorean and heading back to the 1980s. With all the Eighties pop culture floating about today, it feels as if the Reagan Era never ended. So, even if you didn't grow up in the decade, you could probably still nail this quiz like Bill and Ted cheating on a history test.

See if you can get 15 or more correct. Good luck!

* I hated the "Shopping Round" on Wheel Of Fortune. Darn it, if I were a contestant and won $10,000 I want THE MONEY, not the merchandise and not a gift certificate. ☺

You got 16 out of 18
Tubular! You were so hot, you must be coming down with a case of Pac-Man Fever.

Never watched DS nor have I ever seen Ghostbursters. Although I got #7 right I think that rap is Garbage and belongs in the toilet with the rest of the cRap.

12/18. I turned 8 in 1980, graduated HS in '90 when I was 18. The six questions I missed were about shows I never watched, ergo characters I had zero familiarity with.

18/18. Of course, I "came of age" in the '80s (graduated high school in '82, married in '85) and I've always been a pop culture sponge.
