80s Awesomeness! ~ 65

Jock!!!


Depending on your definition of cool, you were the shit if you were a jock in the 80s. And you can thank the 80s for spawning such a term. I mean, why wouldn't you want to be called the name for the sweaty banana hammock that holds a dude's twig and berries? Totally awesome!

The Breakfast Club! Does it not get any better than that?! Oh, and 16 Candles, and Valley Girl....

Yeah, jocks were all that, for sure!

Thank you so much for reminding me that I do not own this film on DVD. My teenager is just about ready to watch this. The reason I don't already own it is because I literally watched the hell out of it back in the day! Thanks for posting.

Totally. This is one of my favorite 80s movies ever. I'm much more of a John Bender fan myself but Estevez isn't bad. I could have used the jocks from Revenge of the Nerds for a much more stereotypical effect.

I think that I watched the Breakfast Club and 16 Candles just about every day until 1989. They were my film Bibles to coolness and teen angst. (Though I did not have a crush on poor Emilio in this movie. My heart went to the bad boy, Judd Nelson. Actually, it still does!)
