I was a teenager in the Rock and Roll era of Bill Haley and the Comets, Buddy Holly, etc., and when Elvis was the king. I graduated HS in 1958. I was never a part of the hippy drug culture of the 60's.
Don't forget the rise of bad food as well! At least in Indiana, that is when the rise of chain "sit down" restaurants like Chi-Chis and Cheddars... came into being, make even the food worse!I was a teenager in the 80s - era of bad fashion, bad hairstyles, and bad music, and I partook in all three.
I am genuinely sorry to have missed the 60s.
