Remember the 80’s? I don’t. Not personally.

I was born in 1989, so, while I can technically claim to be a child of the decade, I won’t out of respect for those who truly experienced it. Growing up in the 90’s, though, there was a lot of holdover from 80’s culture. It lingered in the films and the looks and the general feel of life.

It’s a time that still fascinates me, and seems to bring up pretty much nothing but feelings of joy for people who saw the decade through.

Here are fifteen memes we think you’ll especially appreciated if you love the 80’s.

15. The great battle

“I am your father. Literally. That’s how generations work.”

1. Bike stunts

We were out there acting like hospital bills weren’t even a thing.

What’s your favorite thing from the 80’s?
