For me it would have to be the 80's I love everything about it, the music, the clothes, the films, the amps, effects, all the gear. Everything was awesome then. I love life in these age and all about it but I always feel I belong in the 80s. It sounds crazy! lol

I'm only 17 so I never experienced the 80's

For years I have wished for it...

The only things that would keep me here (if I had the chance to leave) would be my familty, friends and my girlfriend

Anybody feel the same?

For me I would want to go back to the 70's. Even though I lived through them once, I was still in high school for most of them.

Would love to have been about 17 or 18 in about 1974 in the UK for the birth of their punk rock scene, or 19 or so about the same time period in NYC for the whole CBGB/Max's Kansas City scene. So, just a few years older than I actually was in real life, but in a different location.

From everything I've read, it was a much wilder time than what I experienced growing up, though that's probably a good thing for me.

If not in the punk rock era either in London or NYC, then there are a few other cool times I wouldn't mind checking out-- early 60's London and Liverpool for the British invasion (Beatles/Stones/Who/Kinks) , or late '50's Memphis for the Sun Records era, or late '60's Memphis for the Stax Records era. The '80's in Minneapolis (Replacements/Husker Du) or Athens (REM, B-52's, Love Tractor, Db's) would probably be cool too.

I'm not sure what decade I'd choose, probably the 70's. But I do miss my mullet from the 80s/90s. Told my wife that I was going to grow my mullet out again and she said no.

Mullets are much underused these days, they still look awesome (but its tinted by my 80s mind) best stay on the right side of the missus though, the dog house isn't that comfy (so I hear )
