Manners - Not giving up your seat to a senior citizen or wimmins

Common Sense - Not taking a three-year-old child to an "R" rated movie
 
Common Courtesy to others. I don't need to listen to your entire cell phone conversation while I'm in the waiting area

Earning rewards - When we won a trophy it was becasue we earned it, not this participation BS.

 Good music - People who actually sang and played these things called instruments

Cars with personality - now they are pretty much this cookie cutter shaped thing.

Big hair (ew), poofy prom dresses (ew), wine coolers (ew), the original Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place...for the most part I'm pretty glad times have changed. I miss In Living Color and Arsenio Hall though.

The first one I saw was  "So This Is Love"  Van Halen.  It was at my basketball coaches house.
We (the team) went there because he was the only one with cable.

Music  videos  still  on  MTV  -  one  ring  on  the  phone  was  the  signal  to  turn  on  TV  to  see  a  favorite  song.

Skinny  jeans  in  bright  colors.

Keds  sneakers  bright  laces.

Big  hair

Plastic  hollow  hairbrushes  with  caps  we  used  to  unscrew  and  pour  hairspray  into  the  handle  to  keep  the  "big  hair"  in  place  all  day  at  school.  The  handle  would  squirt  hairspray  when  you'd  need  it,  then  it  had  a  plastic  cover.

Asteroids  and  Space  Invaders  video  game  machines  in  pizza  places.

Cassette  tapes,  Boom  Boxes,  Walkman

Family  Ties,  Eight  is  Enough,  Happy  Days,  Laverne  &  Shirley
