So whose posters did you have plastered all over your wall during your teenage years?

I went to high school from 1995-1999. My locker was a few pictures of Kyle Chandler (then the star of Early Edition) and Robert Urich (who had starred in Spenser For Hire in the mid- to late '80s, and I had picked up on that in re-runs on TNT or something). Also probably some Ford Mustang stuff. My pink bedroom walls had a red and black Star Wars poster I had made with acrylic paint.

Early teens - none.

Late teens - Kate Moss, Tyson Beckford, Claudia Schiffer, Elle Macpherson, Johnny Depp, Milla Jovovich, Uma Thurman.

I was obsessed with those black & white Calvin Klein and Guess ads.

Dean Martin (that was a long time ago). Everybody loves somebody sometimes.

My bedroom walls were covered 100% with NKOTB posters from Bop, Big Bopper, Teen Beat, etc. There was NO SPACE without a poster, including big posters hanging directly down from the ceiling.

There were a few Corey Haim and Kirk Cameron, but it was 99% NKOTB.

I also rearranged my room on a monthly basis, which meant taking all posters down and rearranging those as well.

I wish I had pictures of my room from that time. I do still have all of the posters (along with the comforter, sheets, plates/cups, etc in the attic) - maybe I could recreate it

My sister and I shared a room until High School and we had mostly NKOTB and Kirk Cameron. I think we had a couple of the Dukes of Hazard too. What an interesting topic.

My first luvs were the Beatles, the Ed Sullivan years, then later came David Cassidy, Bobby Sherman, and on a more mature level, Tom Jones.

The first teen idol I actually remember was Leif Garrett in the late 70's. I never had posters up on my walls ever though.

My bedroom was plaster - closet doors, walls, everything with photos although they really didn't have many posters then - it was a collage of photos out of teen magazines.

Mostly it was the Beach Boys but also some Rolling Stones and Jay and the AMericans and other groups but over 50% Beach Boys.

ALso had a black light in my room and a real metal stop sign with all the lines and the word stop painted in floursecent paint so it shined in the dark with the black light on.

I made footsteps and painted them in floursecent paint to walk up my wall, across the ceiling, and back down the other side.

Unfortunately I put everything up with a stapler and I didn't skimp on the staples. After I married and I moved out and my parents sold the house, they had thousands of staples to get out of the wall and doors!

I only had 2 posters that I can remember....first one was Davey Jones (The Monkeys), and then David Casidy (Partridge Family). This is sooo funny looking back now.

My bed had a cool corkboard above it (the bed was recessed into the wall like a cubbyhole). I pretty much hung everything there. In junior high, it was Ralph Macchio and Kirk Cameron.

no posters (boring I know) ... but if I'd had any it would have been Bread, Leif Garrett, Shaun Cassidy, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, and James Spader

Don't laugh - Sean Astin! LOVED HIM! Also had Kirk Cameron, Ricky Schroder, Bon Jovi, the Coreys (Haim and Feldman), Rob Lowe, and several others. Loved Teen Beat and Bop (was that it?) NKOTB was a little "after" my time, it was "uncool" to like them, I was in High School.

For me it was totally NKOTB! I don't think you could even see the wall!
