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?
