Let's take a moment and remember 23 years ago. The world welcomed the arrival of Ashlee Simpson, Lil Eazy E, LeBron James, and professional schmuck Marcus Vick. Autobots happily battled Decepticons, free of Michael Bay's bombastic direction. In The Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger treated windshields and cops like how he would later treat the state's education system. Fernando Valenzuela put up a 3.03 ERA and was rewarded with a 12-17 record for his troubles. And in 1984, Billy Squier did more damage to the planet's collective psyche than George Orwell could ever imagine. Watch if you dare.
