Spend Your New Year’s Eve in the Past With These Countdown Specials From the 80’s and 90’s

2017 is about to come to an end, and 2018 is right around the corner.  If you’re like the majority of folks in this world, you’ll spend your New Year’s Eve watching a countdown show from Times Square.  But, if you’re like a select few of us, you’ll watch a countdown show from a year in the past!  To help you out with this, I’ve got three old specials uploaded to my Youtube channel for you to enjoy this New Year’s Eve.

First up, you can roll back the clock 35 years and watch MTV’s New Year’s Eve Rock ‘n’ Roll Ball from 1982!  It features Martha Quinn as the host, and has performances by Flock of Seagulls, The Producers, Duran Duran, and more!

 

Now we jump forward 10 years to 1992 and MTV’s New Year’s Eve Special with host Hammer, and featuring Bell Biv Devoe, EMF, Marky Mark and the Funk Bunch, Naughty by Nature, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Guns ‘n Roses, and a special appearance by Cindy Crawford!

 

And last but not least, it’s the Fox New Year’s Eve Live from 1992 that features Penn & Teller, Sam Kennison, and Guns ‘n Roses.

 

Well there you have 3 classic News Year’s Eve celebrations to choose from for your viewing pleasure.  But heck, why choose?  Just watch all three back to back and kill a few hours this New Year’s Eve and live it up, old school.
