Everyone is a product of their times and the environments that we grew up in. Interestingly enough, most of us have no idea what was going on during the year that we were actually born. For you 80s babies, we have compiled a list of the biggest things that were going on for the year you were born. Check it out! You just might be surprised what you learn about your birth year.

1980 - Disco's Peak

While disco is definitely a 70s genre, this was the first year that someone could win a Grammy for Best Disco Recording. We think that was an excellent decision.


1981 - A Royal Wedding

1981 was a huge year for British royalty. Prince Charles and Lady Diana announced their engagement, they got married, and in the same year announced her pregnancy with Prince Wiliam.

1982 - Thriller

People all over the world went crazy when this hit album was released in 1982. Not only did the world have a new, epic pop album, but they also learned some new dance moves.


1983 - Fraggle Rock

I don't know about the rest of you, but I loved this show as a kid. It was the only thing I was allowed to watch on HBO. The United States and Canada produced this TV Show with Jim Henson in a move to promote world peace.
