In 1985:

Nintendo brings the NES to America, and creates Nintendo of America. Hooray!

Mike Tyson begins his career in Albany New York, with a 1st Round KO. (bad ass)

1st Wrestlemania ever (kick ass)

Back to the Future hits theaters (kicks ass)

Calvin and Hobbes debuts (in 35 newspapers)

Microsoft debuts Windows 1.0 (sucks ass)

American badass John Gotti takes over the Gambino family by having two mafia heads assassinated outside a steakhouse (kicks ass)

2. Piece of shit Bowling for Soup song.
After my piece of shit Windows computer broke down, I went 1985 on everyone's ass and played Mike Tyson's Punchout on the NES and dropped Soda Popinski like a Gambino Family mark.

A year in which, despite the seemingly drug-like addiction that they all have to the song of the same title, most Bowling For Soup fans were not alive.
"I'd still be preoccupied with 1985...if my parents had copulated 9 years earlier."

The year before 1986 and after 1984.
(the latter of which can also be used to refer to a horrid book by George Orwell)

A great song. Period. The band itself, Bowling For Soup, isn't that good, but this song kicks ass. Unfortunately, 98% of high school kids who like this song don't even understand it. Just look at the deffinition with the lyrics! Guerenteed they don't even know who Whitesnake is, what they mean by Gameshows on the radio, and have never seen 'Breakfast Club'. THEY EVEN GOT THE LYRICS WRONG! 'She walked out to WAM"!?!? No, you dumbass, it's 'She ROCKED out to WHAM', an 80's pop group. And the creme de la crap, one thing that pisses me off more than anything else is this, 'When did Montley Crew become classic rock?' MONTLEY CREW!!!???!!!??? The moral of the story is, if you don't know shit about the decade, then don't pretend you understand the song.
Urban dictionary now requires you to use the word in the example, so here it is: 1985

A great song that was completely killed by the radio. Here's the history:
The song was originally written and recorded by SR-71 on their album HERE WE GO. It was about a woman who wanted to be a star in the 80s but had an unplanned pregnancy.
A friend of SR-71's Mitch Allan, Jaret Reddick was in the UK that year with his band, Bowling For Soup. BFS had just been nominated for a grammy in 2002 and were about to put the finishing touches on A HANGOVER YOU DON'T DESERVE. Jaret decided to buy his friend's album and the song that caught his ears was...1985. Nobody really knows who made the call. According to SR-71's website, Jaret called and asked if he could rewrite the song and put it on their new album. But according to Bowling for Soup's website, Mitch called Jaret and asked about the cover. All we know is BFS rewrote and covered 1985 and the awesome cover was over played on every radio station thus ruining it.
In 2005, something horrible happened. KidzBop ruined the already ruined song by putting it on KidzBop 7. Also, a copy of KidzBop, 4 Kidz by Kidz put it on 4 Kidz by Kidz 2. Radio Disney found the song and edited it. someone put it on a karaoke thingy. Even though the song kept getting put on all the useless cover albums, people started to pay less attention to the song and Bowling For Soup. They were luckily saved when they released "Almost" as a single, but it may not have happened. It just goes to show you the evils of the radio.
1985 is a great song but it was overplayed on the radio.

Moniker attached to a self-mixed alcoholic drink, eg bourbon and coke, wherein the quantity of liquor is significantly greater than that of the mixer. 1985 is a bastardised fraction - instead of asking for a 20/80, (representing the quantities of mixer and spirit respectively), the drinker humorously requests a 19/85, alluding to the compromised intellect symptomatic of the intoxication such a potent drink would inevitably cause.
Dipsomaniac: I think I'll have another bundy and coke.
Server of drinks: How strong?
Dipsomaniac: Aw, go all out, give us a 1985

A strange song that gets stuck in your head easily by Bowling for Soup.
"Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husbands a CPA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned 24
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan
She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her a**
On the hood of Whitesnake's car
Her yellow SUV
Is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing has been all right

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and blondie
Music still on MTV
Her two kids in highschool
They tell her that she's uncool
Cuz shes still preoccupied with 19...19...1985!

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink
Even St. Elmo's Fire
She walked out to WAM
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran
Wears the mini-skirt
Made of snakeskin
And who's the other guy
that's singing in Van Halen
when did reality
Become TV
Whatever happened to
Sitcoms and gameshows
On the radio

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and blondie
Music still on MTV
Her two kids in highschool
They tell her that she's uncool
Cuz shes still preoccupied with 19...19...1985!

She hates time
Make it stop
When did Montly Crew
Become classic rock
And when did Ozzy
Become an actor
Please make this STOP...Stop...Stop...
And bring back...

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and blondie
Music still on MTV
Her two kids in highschool
They tell her that she's uncool
Cuz shes still preoccupied with 19...19...1985! "
