People were cooler in the 80s

I have spent this whole decade laughing contemptuously at their hairstyles and ugly clothes, from the vantage point of my supposedly superior, snobby generation. Then I spent the whole of Halloween watching music videos from the 80s, and realised that (with the exception of Bon Jovi probably) I was wrong. They were simply effortlessly cooler than all of the laughable current 'stars.' For example:
Blondie
The pretty one from The Bangles
Madonna...
They just seem so, er, 'rockstar,' not trying to sound too gimpy. Compared to today, they seem more scruffy, indifferent. In other words, not this:
Or this, ugh.
They are completely manufactured and reek of desperation. All style and no genuine 'coolness.'
