Well, day one of DJ Robert Drake’s Awesome #1 Hits of the 80s Weekend was a total blast. The music was great (and horrendous), the #AwesomeXPN hashtag was poppin and people from around the region (and the country) were weighing in via social media on the best and worst of what we were collectively listening to. Here’s some of the best Twitter action we’ve seen so far.

A lot of listeners were legitimately excited about the countdown, and talked about the memories it sparked.

Other listeners were more, er, questioning of the music and its cultural relevance today (or ever).

As the trip down memory lane ensued, many listeners began Tweeting images of their personal 80s memorabilia.

Robert Drake actually dug up and posted a photograph of himself from the 80s.

Which prompted other listeners to follow suit with a parade of amazingly retro images.

The #AwesomeXPN 80s weekend continues this morning at 10 a.m. and runs until Robert has played every number one hit through December of 1989. Before its over, we will hear not one, not two but three Milli Vanilli songs. And on that note, here is a closing thought from Philebrity’s Joey Sweeney.
