Put Your Celebrity Recognition Skills to the Test: Name These 1980s Stars from Only One Picture!


Ah, the 1980s; how we loved thee! Was there anything better than turning on your walkman or making your own mixtape for a party? Or maybe you're more of a history buff, and the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster and the election of Ronald Reagan stand out in your mind. Princess Diana married Prince Charles in 1981, and in 1982 Japan began to sell the first CDs. Even 80s fashion has earned a permanent place in fashion history, influencing style even three decades in the future. The real focal point of the 1980s, though, were the TV, movie, and music stars. From Michael Jackson's chilling "Thriller" to Winona Ryder's captivating acting chops, there was a lot going on in the 80s. Many of the decade's movies have achieved cult classic status, and its songs can be heard everywhere from grocery stores to commercials. Can you remember the 80s biggest superstars?

Did you know?

Tech was booming in the 1980s

The 1980s were crucial in developing some of the technology we rely on every day. The famous video game Pac-Man was released in 1980. Time Magazine named "The Computer" Man of The Year in 1982, just as it was garnering attention among the public and businesses. In 1983, Motorola introduced the United States' first mobile phones. In the same year, Microsoft released "Word," their processing program that would become a staple on all computers in the years to come. Nintendo released their Game Boy at the end of the decade, and we all know where that led us (hello, Nintendo Switch!). The 80s did more for our modern technology than most of us might think.
