Ah, 1988. The year ...And Justice For All was released and the summer I saw the Monsters of Rock Tour. Good times, good times.

"Handle With Care" still holds up beautifully after all this time.

All of those seem that old to me; the 20-year list was far more gut-wrenching personally.  The 80s seem far away, the 90s didn't.

I'm class of '88.

Honestly, I am surprised some of those are only 25 years old (thought "Pour Some Sugar on Me" would have been like 83 or 84).

Wilbury stuff is almost always on my playlist.  Classic tunes by a very talented group of guys.

In a few weeks comes the 20th HS reunion.
Therefore, this list is 'crap that was popular in middle school'
I now have a child in middle school

25 years since the Summer of my first triple and 24 years since my first game of hide the kielbasa.  Would be a CSB if it weren't for her daddy issues and knife throwing.

"Supergroups" were usually pretty lame and forgettable. The Wilburys is one of only two I can think of off the top of my head that's ever been worth a damn, the other being Los Super 7.

I'm sure there's a couple more good supergroups. Either I can't think of them right now or maybe I somehow never heard of them... Help me out somebody?

This may be the only time in history where the phrase "Bonus: Rickroll" has been used.

Went with Wifey to her 30th HS reunion a couple weeks ago (Class of '83, obviously) and this song was played, so yes, I too thought it was from that year.
