was it really that bad? i was born at the end of the 70's so missed all the fun, but i hear people talking nostalgically about t were.

Great music up to circa '75 anyway
Hot tropical summers, especially (and probably only) 1976. Stand pipes.
Family holidays in the UK
Cheap holidays in Greece (mostly Spain actually)
Long hair, flared jeans and high-waisted trousers
