The "Club Kids" were a real group of people in the 1980s, young people (usually twenty five was considered too old) who would go to clubs and make themselves into celebrities with bizarre antics and self-styled images. The Club Kids made their entire livings based on the fact that they were Club Kids - party organizers, club owners, and talk show hosts paid them obscene amounts of money simply to show up and party.
