Titanic was in cinemas, Britney Spears released ... Baby One More Time, Geri Halliwell left the Spice Girls and Apple released the bright turquoise iMac computer.


The 90s were great but really not for any of those things.

I admire the guy for sticking to his principles and enjoying his hobby, but he's still got a long way to go before he's as radical as his inspiration.

Oh FFS! The 90's weren't so far back that no one from that decade is still alive. This isn't what the 90's looked like.

What to know what a 90's house looked like? It looked like an 80's house, with some parts of it a 70's house! Because normal people don't flush everything out of their house at the end of a decade and buy all-new furniture all over again.

As a teenager, I enjoyed discovering discarded 90s memorabilia in car boot sales and charity shops. I was diagnosed with Asperger's and came out as gay at 15.

Two years ago, my boyfriend, Matthew, and I moved into a cottage with my parents in Bakewell, Derbyshire. Mum and Dad gave me free rein over decor. I gave Mum a full Laura Ashley bedroom with pale pink and white floral bedding. The kitchen has 90s yellow appliances, like the ones my gran had.

Matthew wasn't interested in the 90s when we started dating, but after three years together, my interest has rubbed off on him, too, and we share clothes. Everyone in our small village knows me because of how I dress. When I go into Manchester or Sheffield, I blend in more, especially now the 90s are popular again.

He should hop on down to the Old Port. Three Dollar Deweys is one of the best places to go to get drunk in Portland.

Old article.  the 90s are a weird thing to have nostalgia for, but I grew up in the 80s so I might be biased.   It just seemed that during the second half of high school, pop culture started to massively suck.  It was all grunge and hip-hop.  I enjoyed the 80s blend of new wave, synth pop and the last days of album rock.  It all died by the summer of 1989.  There were definitely exceptions but I could count them on two hands.

I sourced every Now That's What I Call Music CD from 1990 to 1999 from record stores

Yeah. Those didn't come out until like 97 so that's not some amazing feat. Before that there was MTV Party To Go.

Why does he have a mustache? The only facial hair allowed in the 90s were goatees and Van Dykes. Maybe that thing under your lip and a little on the chin.

You can get God tier unattainable tier 90s for cheap. Like the top of the line TV, VCR and tapes for dirt cheap.

Someone on YouTube builds computers from 20 years ago that would cost $5000 or more back then in parts for a few hundred.

A top of the line 90's VCR can cost around $900 (1990's prices).

I know because I used to own one. https://www.porterelectronics.co​m/jvc-​hr-s9800u-super-vhs-vcr-player/?gclid=​CjwKCAiA_omPBhBBEiwAcg7smWSLGZHg0IcXzD​R7tkkUzm0LrKDKM37oQXet3JJotlSBCxtAmOWE​hBoChQwQAvD_BwE

The 90s was one of the best decades for music in terms of variety.  I'd argue that it was one of the best decades in music ever, but I will say that if you tuned into to terrestrial radio and MTV you would have missed most of it.

I was born in 1998, at the tail end of the decade I love.

There is little that is sadder than people obsessing over a decade that they do not remember and were barely alive to see. It would be like people born in 1980 obsessing over the '70s.

Besides, it's a well-known fact that music died in 1996. The latter half of the '90s brought us the rebirth of shiatty pop.

I feel sad for those who get the ass-end of the decade. Me, I was born in '83, so I get to remember the 80s (sorta remember) and the 90s (most definitely remember).

1998 was the year I realized the 90s would finally end.

Too bad the last two decades have been worse.

In America yes, but in the UK they started back in the early 80's

It was the last decade that had real rock. And if you liked hot chick music, it had that too.

Born in 98.  So didn't have to actually experience the 90s.  Must be why he likes it.

I'm stuck on the 80s.  My personal sense of history goes something like:

Stone age, Hyborian Age (yeah, I know), bronze age, Roman Empire, Medieval Europe, Victorian England, WWII, 50s, Hippies, Stoned Age, 80s, After 80s.

1990 forward is just kind of one giant lump.  I have to take care to recall that it started without a ubiquitous Internet or smart phones.

It kind of was, at least real rock that was crazy popular. I watched the Dave Grohl documentary What Drives Us a few weeks ago. Flea and Brian Johnson from AC/DC both mention that every rock band that can consistently sell out stadiums is from before 2000.

It was before GnR and Metallica stopped sucking. It was before people stopped thinking five chord grunge revolutionized music. And it was before death metal died.

Do the Guardian, Sun, and Mirror just recycle the same stories over and over?  Or did something exciting happen this time like he upgraded his internet or got a Gateway PC
