Take Me Out Tonight: Five 80s Boys We'll Always Love
Stuck in the 80s? Not a problem—tons of bands and musicians are making their comebacks and touring again; some of the fashion is (hilariously) showing up in shops and magazines…neon, jellies, high-waisted pants and shorts. Heck, even Schwarzenegger’s Terminator is getting in on the act. The hair may have been really bad, but certain things should endure—like these five favorites who thankfully, have never gone away.
1. Michael J. Fox
