About This Quiz

Welcome to our Breakfast Club! 

When it comes to music, the 1980s were an extremely iconic decade. Artists like Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper became well-known internationally. While they were singing solo, bands like Bon Jovi and Guns N' Roses were rockin' out with the big hair to end all big hair. Which of these artists would make it onto your 80s playlist, and will your answers tell us about who you were in high school?

One of the most popular movies of the 80s was John Hughes' 1985 film, "The Breakfast Club." The movie took five high school stereotypes and forced them to spend Saturday morning in detention together. Which of these characters were you most like? Were you prim and popular? Were you the classic jock or the nerd?
