What part of this is the error? Did you want the NYT to pluralize 80s with an apostrophe?

Paula Zargaj-Reynolds

No, that would be incorrect, too.

The headline should read: Where the Bad '80s Have a Niche

The phrase "The Bad '80s" is the subject and it's plural, so 'have' would be correct.

I disagree, it could be argued that there is only one "bad 80s".

"The Bad '80s" refers to one era of time; therefore, it is singular. It's the same as saying "Three million dollars IS a lot of money."
