From the Rhino site:
"No sooner had we unveiled our Have A Nice Decade: The '70s Pop Culture Box to nostalgia-hungry Baby Boomers than Gen X-ers began bombarding us with requests for the perfect follow-up -- a bitchin' '80s box. Reagan, junk bonds, shoulder pads -- there's a lot about the '80s that doesn't bear repeating. But thankfully the music does. From Devo's new wave weirdness to Twisted Sister's mental metal to Run D.M.C.'s rocked-out rap, Rhino's latest behemoth box brings you the songs that have outlived the hairstyles.
So let's hear it for the box! Like Omigod! The '80s Pop Culture Box (Totally) packs seven CDs with 142 original hits by an awesome array of superstars, one-hit wonders, and all kinds of artists who've since changed their wardrobes. This outrageously packaged collection features a sculpted rubber cover (for the first 25,000 copies) and a massive 90-page book filled with essays; Top 5 lists for movies, TV shows, and trends; a timeline of the decade's significant events; track-by-track annotation; and enough photos of '80s pop culture icons to gag you with a spoon."
