You know you grew up in the 80s when:

You know what "Sike" means.

You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, Wax off."

You know that another name for a keyboard is a "Synthesizer."

You can sing the McDonald's Big Mack, Filet-o fish,quarter pounder, and French fry song.

You know who Mr. T is.

You know who Fat Albert is.

You ever wore fluorescent, neon clothing.

You could breakdance, or wish you could.

You wanted to be The Hulk for Halloween.

You Believed that "By the power of Greyskull, you HAD the power!"

Partying "like it's 1999" seemed SO far away.

You thought that Transformers were more than meets the eye.

You knew that knowing is half the battle.

You wanted to be on Star Search.

You can remember Michael Jackson when he was black.

You wore a banana clip at some point during your youth.

You knew what Willis was "talkin' 'bout."

You knew "Rut row raggy" and "Zoinks."

You HAD to have your MTV.

You actually thought "Dirty Dancing" was a REALLY good movie.

You remember when ATARI was a state of the art video game system.

You owned any cassette tapes.

You were led to believe that in the year 2000 we'd all be living on the moon.

You remember and/or owned any of the Care Bear Glass collection from Pizza Hut or the Muppets glasses from McDonalds.

Poltergeist freaked you out.

You knew who Ben Stein was before you could win his money,"Bueller?"

You carried your lunch to school in a Gremlins, ET, Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, Strawberry Shortcake or A-Team lunch box.

You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female smurf.

You know what leg warmers are and probably had a pair.

You wore biker shorts underneath a short skirt and felt stylish.

You wore your Izod shirt with the collar up.

You had a Swatch! Watch with the Swatch Guard.

Your Legos collection started with the free sets in a Happy Meal.

You remember when Happy Meals came in a box, not a paper bag.

You remember when Saturday Night Live was funny.

You had Wonder Woman or Superman underoos.

You know what a "Push Up" ice cream is.

You had to come in the house when the street lights came on.

You had to change into play clothes after school.

You owned, or knew somebody with a Commodore 64.

You hated Scrappy Doo.

You recorded songs off the radio with your boom box.

You wish you had a light saber.

Somehow you still know all the words to songs played on VH1's "Big 80's"

Your arm was full of rubber bracelets.

You have ever said, "Gag me with a spoon."

You have ever wondered what happened to Saturday morning cartoons.

You had to get up to change the channel.

You can still sing 1 to 12 from the Pinball machine on Sesame Street.

You thought the "Thriller" video was pretty cool

You remember the first time you went into a video store to rent a movie.

You wore those wide colorful shoelaces.

Quiet Riot's "Come on feel the noise" was the best song - ever.

You know where "I want my two dollars" came from.

You still cannot go in to the water because of that darn movie - Jaws.

El Debarge's "Get a beat to the Rhythm of the night" plagued the radio every hour.

You remember life before minivans and SUVs.

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack's what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
