In another post someone suggested that most Tuggers were teenagers in the 1950's. The purpose of this poll is to determine when most Tuggers were teenagers.

If you became a teenager at the end of a decade--such as someone who turned 13 in 1959--count the decade in which you had the most teenage years. So, a 13-year old in 1959 would have been a teenager for more years in the 1960's than the 1950's.

Here are the decades:

30's
40's
50's
60's
70's
80's
90's
1970 's !!!

It was great being a kid in the 60s...even being a preteen and being exposed to great timeless music, peace, love and just an interesting time in history!!

I was a teenager from 1984-1994 - so a mix of the 80's and the 90's. On top of being widely known as the Gen Xer's, we're also the Nomad generation. There are four generational archetypes that follow a pattern - Prophet, Hero, Nomad, Artist. And almost always in that order.

Graduated from high school in 1968. Agree with Jim Freeman. Best music ever. Kasey Kasem was the dj at our local recreation center dances. We were pretty lucky!!

Proud Gen-X'er with teenage years in the 1980s.

That's a nice normal-looking distribution we got going there, bell curve and all!
