    I graduated from high school in '87. Now I remember why I hated top 40 radio back then (still do for the most part). I just remember listening to a lot of 5150, Turbo, Appetite for Destruction, Joshua Tree, Permanent Vacation, Whitesnake, etc.

    Glad I could help reinforce the anger, pain and suffering of your senior year.
