That's the show I thought the headline referred to. It was very underrated.

It has to be troubling to see his sister reduced to doling out $8 Croatian Axe Handles at the Bakersfield Flying J. He's a good brother for doing this.

That '80s Show featured that actress from that other show who made out with her brother in that movie.

There's nothing wrong with the concept of a television comedy set in the 1980s. The problem with That 80's Show is that it just wasn't very funny, and the characters weren't as memorable as the cast of That 70's Show.

It's Your Move was one of the best sitcoms ever to air on tv. Watching the season ender where the chubby friend (Eli?) was playing goal in soccer and totally whiffed was so far out of the norm for that era of sitcoms.

80's nostalgia's first wave hit in January 1990.

This is what's known as the 20 Year Nostalgia Cycle. Every decade experiences a wave of the nostalgia for the one that came 20 years prior. During the 1980s there was a wave of 1960s nostalgia, examples being the Wonder Years and the hype over the 20th anniversary of Woodstock. In the 1990s there was a wave of 1970s nostalgia, with movies like Dazed and Confused and Boogie Nights, TV shows like That 70's Show, and the original lineup of KISS getting back together and putting the makeup back on. In the last several years there has been a wave of 1980s nostalgia: movies like Hot Tub Time Machine and the Expendables (which is a throwback to 1980s action films), hair metal hits being featured in commercials and movies, etc. And now the 80's nostalgia is starting to taper off and we're seeing 90's nostalgia start to emerge.

I am aware of this, though I do think it's funny that 90s nostalgia generally just covers 2 or 3 years of the 90s. I guess it's better than late-90s nostalgia...

as an aside this perfectly encapsulates the crappiness of late 90s Nu-Metal. (with bonus ties to Birdemic!) God help us when this becomes a real thing.

perhaps we're just not late enough into the 2010s for mid- to late-90s nostalgia? aside from the fact that bands like No Doubt, Marilyn Manson, Green Day, etc are doing GREAT right now

eh, I'd be more worried about that happening if it weren't for the fact that none of those bands ever really went away. Now if Bush actually made a comeback*, then I'd say we're in for a late-90s comeback.


*I know they reunited, but they haven't really lit up the airwaves or anything.

Just depends on what you mean by nostalgia. Numetal.. No, no nostalgia. Alternative and grunge? Yea, it will be there. Hardcore gangsta rap? Yep, particularly since modern rap is so godawful. Corduroy pants/shorts? Probably not. Dickies, punk rock patches, and Doc Martens? Well, for some high school kids that never even went out of style.

I don't know if it's changed since I left, but 107.7 The End's daily playlist (click view playlist in the upper-right) felt like 1995 caught in a 2012 timewarp. not saying that's necessarily bad, it just strikes me as odd, I guess; especially since they weren't like that at all around 2000/2001.

i'd say they have...the big single from their new album has been well overplayed on the local hard rock and modern rock stations. and they have a very recent performance on Audience Channel (think it was a Guitar Center Sessions)

but yeah green day has "resurfaced" about every 4 years without a break up. bush broke up, but weren't really gone for more than about 4 years tops. no doubt was becoming the gwen stefani pop band + real instruments and then faded away so she could be the gwen stefani pop singer - real instruments. marilyn manson = pretty much same deal as green day, only i think there was a little longer between albums. my favorites, PEARL JAM, have been going pretty strong for 20 years +.

there is still too much new nu-metal and the like around. not quite the same as in the late-90s & early 2000s, but it's still there. luckily a good deal of it is the stuff i actually like, like godsmack and staind. thank god i haven't heard about that leather-clad moron josey scott in recent years!

and bands like sublime and alice in chains have made successful and actually good comebacks with new singers! no, we can NEVER replace bradley and layne, but the new guys are pretty good.

hardcore gangsta rap? i certainly hope not. don't get me wrong, i like nwa and snoop, and to a lesser extent ice-t. but they are by far the exceptions, not the rule. easy e is dead, dre is hawking overpriced headphones to hipsters and douchebags, ice cube is making lighthearted family comedies, snoop is a rastafarian lion or some shiz now, and ice-t is a cop on tv

I would take Gangsta Rap over pretty much anyone currently on Hip Hop radio. Though I would probably not want it to involve Snoop, Ice Cube/T, etc.


bungle_jr: there is still too much new nu-metal and the like around. not quite the same as in the late-90s & early 2000s




I don't follow the radio that well, but I just assumed most of the Nu-Metal acts just merged with the Pop-Punk bands and basically became what we know as Emo. I had no idea Bush was getting really any airplay. They seemed to get less and less with each successive album back in the 90s.

I did think the new Alice in Chains was much better than I thought it would be. Kind of a random tracklist, but it had some tracks that were good enough for me to want to hear more form this line-up. Never really cared for more than a few tracks of Sublime.


I will say that the mainstream appropriation of Dubstep does remind of the late 90s when Electronica = farty sequencers and every non-electronic band was trying their hand at such.
 
2012-10-03 10:24:32 AM
'90s nostalgia sounds boring to me. It doesn't have as much character as the '80s, 70s, etc. I grew up in the '90s, but I don't really long for Sega Genesis and Ace of Base or find a lot of humorous stuff worth parodying.

the popular gangsta rap was MUCH better than most of the radio rap these days. but i never really got big into any rap aside from beastie boys and bloodhound gang and rage against the machine. anyone heard from mc wren lately?

and you're right about bush...i doubt they'll ever return to their "sixteen stone" and "razorblade suitcase" glory

yeah, I kind of agree. 90s Nostalgia seems to be limited solely to Alternative and flannel, it seems.


though the amount of love for the Nintendo 64 kind of baffles me. I mean, I had one, but there's awful lot of nostalgia for a system that probably didn't have more than 10 genuinely great games*, if that. shiat, at least the NES, SNES, and to a lesser extent, Genesis had dozens.


*and even then I'm being generous as I know Goldeneye will be counted among those great games even though it's always been a shiatty game that happened to have a fun multiplayer portion.
