When you were growing up, did you have posters all over your bedroom walls?

Asked by Zackyy (265points) December 24th, 2009

If there is one thing common to almost all teens its having posters plastered all over the bedroom walls. Most of them include favorite actor and/or singer or someone else in a different profession.

Ha! I had a Grizzly Adams poster. Yep, I was cool.

Nope. My walls were always bare. Looks better that way.

I had more on my door, I mean it was a somewhat small room, and the posters would just make it look smaller. I had them all on my door or posted up on a fabricated bulletin board.

Only until I hit my teen years. I had a Shaun Cassidy poster, a Michael Jackson poster, a bunch of kitten posters.

Oh, gawd. Did I really just admit to Shaun Cassidy?

I had Farrah Fawcett on my wall, but she protested and I had to let her go. Fortunately, she gave me a poster of her. The poster just wasn’t the same as having the real thing.

No, I’m a pre-poster child:)

I didn’t until I was about 16 and started going to punk rock shows. Then I started hanging the fliers on my walls.

Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee and various black light posters.

I shared a room with a rather destructive little brother, so my room was devoid of anything paper. I actually didn’t start hanging posters until college, and even now I have 3 walls that are nothing but prints and posters (with no white between them).

I had posters and stickers everywhere until I started going to concerts and getting into photography.
Now I mainly have autographed stuff and pictures. I do have a big James Dean picture and a shrine to LOST though.

Yup, but my guardian made me take them down after a couple of days. I wasn’t supposed to be listening to popular music as the household was a fundy Christian one. For two days I had on my wall: The Police, Hall & Oates and Duran Duran. Maybe I had one R.E.M. poster, but I didn’t think those guys were as cute. :/

I was not allowed to have posters on my walls when I was still in the house. When I went to boarding school I put up a few against my cupboard door.

Thank goodness for school lockers, eh? John Taylor was all up in there, boy!

I wasn’t allowed to have posters on my walls, so I started hanging my Backstreet boys posters on my ceiling. It took my father almost a year before he found out.

Freedom_Issues's avatar

Yes, and I made kind of a collage on my wall with Keanu Reeves pictures. :)

jca's avatar

yes, Shaun Cassidy, Scott Baio, John Travolta, plus some unicorns and stuff like that.

patg7590's avatar

Nope. Wasn’t allowed. I had a Tasmanian devil character thing for my door that said “keep out” but my mom ripped it off and stuck it on the inside of my door.

Austinlad's avatar

That was so long ago, I can barely remember. But I do know I had one of Moses.

Aethelwine's avatar

I had tons of them. I started with Rick Schroder, Scott Baio, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio during my pre-teen/early teen years. When I was about 15 I had Metallica, Dio and Motley Crue posters all over my room. Then came Depeche Mode and The Cure.

tinyfaery's avatar

@jonsblond It was Ricky Schroder you had on your wall.

Aethelwine's avatar

@tinyfaery I know, but have you seen him lately? The man doesn’t age!

OpryLeigh's avatar

Yes, you couldn’t actually see any of my wall for posters. They were mainly of animals and my favourite people.

Jude's avatar

Michael Jackson, C. Thomas Howell, Isiah Thomas and Nancy McKeon (ha!), from around 10 to 12. Later on it was Depeche Mode, The Cure, Duran Duran, The Smiths, Madonna, and Prince.

DominicX's avatar

Well, I never had that many posters. I was more into nerdy posters. I have a map of the world, a periodic table of the elements, and an Enya poster. Other than that, not much on the walls except for a few pictures and a calendar. Never been a big poster person.

Though I do remember when I had that Pokemon poster. Had that up for almost 5 years.

My brother on the other hand, he pretty much has a poster for every band he likes.
