About This Quiz

The '80s was a rich time for music culture. New sounds were emerging, and classic sounds were getting distorted. With these new sounds came attention from pretty much everywhere. Hardcore punk music, hip-hop, and heavy metal all came under attack by social groups, conservative organizations, and even the American government. 

Certain types of music were considered too vulgar to be aired on the radio. Others were branded as "satanic." Music was polarized as good or evil. There was no in between. An "us versus them" mentality struck the world, and personal taste suddenly turned into a way to identify if someone was good or bad. As music producers and band members testified before Congress, were you watching on TV or not even a glint in your mother's eye?

There is no doubt that the '80s changed the way we identified through song, and that's what makes your '80s playlist so important. Your '80s playlist is your personality. It shows which side you were on (or would have been on). It tells us whether you were good or evil. Create an '80s playlist, and we'll guess whether you're an angel or a demon.
