I am obsessed with the 80’s. I was not alive during the 80’s, but I should’ve been.
Synth heavy pop, John Hughes films, and the ushering in of the grunge punk style; these are a few of my favorite things.
Anyone who’s at all aware of 80’s pop culture has heard of the Brat Pack, and if you haven’t, you’re sorely missing out. The Brat Pack was the nickname given to a group of young actors who dominated the screen back in the day, primarily seen in the coming of age films the 80’s are known for. Most specifically, the Brat Pack included the group of actors who starred in The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire, but essentially that term is an umbrella for that group of artists and creative types who were just constantly teaming up with each other and collaborating to produce all these iconic works of the 80’s.
Now, the Brat Pack is a thing of the past, and the kids who grew up obsessing over those actors are the ones running the show. Years from now, who will we look back on as the iconic artists of our generation? Who will we look back on and see as this group of artists that made up a team to promote each other and push each other?
