Forgotten Photos Of The Club Kids That Will Remind You How Insane Parties Were Back In The Day

- Page 1

The early 80s and 90s had a huge pop music scene, but there are always those who are living a more alternative life. They listened to a different style of music, but they also dressed in a much more interesting way.

Over time, they became one of the biggest groups in New York City and started calling themselves 'The Club Kids.' They had a distinct style, an avant-garde lifestyle, and an attitude unlike any other popular groups.

The group was centered around Michael Alig and James St. James, who became so popular in the nightlife scene that they were paid to attend events. The whole Club Kid group ended abruptly after two of their members, including their leader Alig and his roommate, Robert 'Freeze' Riggs, plead guilty to a manslaughter charge.

They killed and dismembered their fellow Club Kid Andre 'Angel' Melendez, keeping his chopped up body in the bathtub for a week before stuffing the body parts into suitcases and dumping them in the Hudson River.

But before all the drama, the Club Kids had an amazing time in the late 80s and early 90s. They ruled New York and we all envied their outrageous and outlandish choices. Remember what it was like to see their pictures when you were young?

Fashion is one of those things that seems to have a cycle that everything follows, so the same things become popular every few years. It has been happening since the dawn of fashion really, but it's just a lot weirder when it's the stuff you grew up wearing. When you see a young kid rock the same style of outfit you wore when you were their age you suddenly feel like you've traveled through time. You'd expect for fashion to evolve over the years, but it honestly doesn't. It just spins in circles, occasionally scooping up some new additions or

Stirrup Pants Are Back In Style And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that. You rush through everything quickly, finding the size you need and then it isn't until years later when you look at the pictures of your childhood that you realize what

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm?
