First female elected to lead a democracy, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her bodyguards in Oct 1984, which triggered the nationwide killings of thousands of Sikhs.

D'oh.

Wow 1984 was a real turning point in my life.

I turned 13 years old and was going 80 mph down a dead-end street until my mom took action and sent me to a treatment program for troubled teens. Turned out to be the best and worst 45 days of my life, but I finally saw the light and starting to change for the better.

It took a long time but I finally got my life back together again. So for me 1984 holds a special place in my heart.

* Also got my first real KISS in 1984 - from a girl with me in the treatment program. (So it wasn't all bad)!!! :D

Music was pretty sweet around that time, and I wasn't even born yet.

A lot of people who like 80's metal (trash, speed, not that glam crap) don't seem to realize that if you look hard enough -=Points to Europe=- You can find some really grade A quality music. While the US's "metal" scene is dominated by Nu Metal and Hardcore, Europe is all Death and Power Metal. And for people who miss the good stuff from the 80's, I suggest checking out some good Power Metal (Sonata Arctica, Blind Guardian, Falconer, Stratovarius, Iced Earth....the list goes on)

This is a TMNT forum, after all. It be a shame to not mention that Eastman & Laird kicked off their first Mirage comic in 1984 too! :twink:

I was also 9 years old then.... but too distracted by the cartoons on TV to care.

You listen to Stratovarius? That's cool. I bet most people here don't even know what a stratovarius is, never mind what Stratovarius is. I like mostly classic metal from the 80's, but modern Euro-metal is definately the next best thing. Much better then all the Nu-Metal crap in North America. Do you listen to Hammerfall at all? They're probably my favourte new generation metal band - bought their new double live CD a few months ago.
