    Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, what are we going to do with you? If you want to write something set in the 80s, you *have* to do real research, not just ask a never-ending series of questions here.

    Other than fads in fashion like big hair, leg warmers, mullets, shoulder pads etc., Pac Man, Walkmans, boom boxes, break dancing etc.

    An insane 'feminist' cult which in many cases descended into mental illness.

    Edit:  The raving insanity was more a UK thing.  Curiously in the US feminism was not associated with an antisocial attitude in the same way.

    If you ever watched any 1980s movies, adults were all dour, fun hating bores who did everything possible to make the lives of the young people in their charge as dull and uninteresting as possible.  However if you are asking what adults today enjoyed as fads back in the 1980s, that's a totally different question
