About This Quiz

For many people, the 1980s was one of the best decades of their lives, and for others, it could have passed by quicker.  Historical events include the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the first woman went to space. There were also fads like Pac-man, boom boxes, hacky-sack, Koosh balls, and neon colored everything. Through the good and the bad, this decade was undoubtedly one for the history books. 

With the increase in movie production and musical artists being able to create music videos, there were more celebrities for people to fawn over.  Some of those male celebrities included Rob Lowe, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Matthew Broderick, to name a few. 

Often considered heartthrobs, these people were just a few from that decade who graced the covers on numerous magazines, were featured in multiple ad campaigns, as well as being on posters that covered many teens' bedroom walls. 

If you had the opportunity to take one of these heartthrobs to prom, who would it be? Will you two be wearing coordinating outfits and what kind of songs will you be dancing the night away to? If you would like to find out who to expect at your doorstep, then you should take this quiz!
