You knew you were a cool kid in Rochester, Minnesota in the 80's if...

You knew you were a cool kid in the midwest back in the 80's and 90's if you had permed hair that was up in a banana clip as you walked through the hallways at John Marshall High School in Rochester with your Z Cavaricci's rolled tight on your ankles.  Every kid in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin knew that being cool meant all of those things.  But, that's not all the cool kids did!  Scroll through and go back in time a bit and see how many of the "cool" things were part of your everyday back "in the day".

Huge list of "Cool Stuff" that kids in the 80's and 90's were all about.

Everything from the 80's and 90's screams "Cool!". Ok, looking back at photos of kids in their bright neon shorts and Hypercolor shirts where their armpits were pitted out, that really doesn't look all that "cool" today but if you were a kid back then, we sure felt like we knew style. Go through the list and see how many of these items you had in your room or used back in the day.
