32 years ago today in 1982, Frank Zappa released his song “Valley Girl.”

32-years-ago today in 1982, Frank Zappa released his song “Valley Girl.” Featured on the song were the rantings of his 14-year-old daughter Moon Unit Zappa, speaking typical “Valley girl” or “Valspeak” phrases she heard at “parties, bar mitzvahs, and the Galleria” around the San Fernando Valley. Zappa intended to lampoon the image, but the single popularized the Valley girl stereotype nationwide, leading to millions of American girls adopting much of the language and inflections parodied in the song.
