    Nirvana is definitely the worst fad of the 90’s. I can still remember seeing the Smell Like Teen Spirit video and thinking how stupid his mumbling lyrics were. Then, having to go to school the next day and listen to idiots rave about them.

    And extremely hurtful and painful in the 80’s. 90’s I was actually happy!!

  11. bobbycone2 on December 28, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    I miss the 90s so much! Was 18 when the 90s ended. It was a good decade!



  12. B Rabbit on December 28, 2021 at 3:51 pm

    Most of this stuff was actually born in the 70’s and 80’s – it just became more mainstream in the 90’s



  13. Drew Durbin on December 28, 2021 at 3:54 pm

    Yahoo messenger…..anybody….really nothing



  14. Wade Smith on December 28, 2021 at 3:55 pm

  19. bobbycone2 on December 28, 2021 at 3:59 pm

    Back then… Good music, good parties, good coffee, food TV.
    Now. Cancel culture and everyone offended by everything.

  28. jeremyhh300 on December 28, 2021 at 4:12 pm

  29. Tbone Hendez on December 28, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    MTV’s downtown caught that late 90s vibe perfectly.



  30. BRONSON ENCOUNTERS on December 28, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    The equation is simple, see Kurt Cobain, watch video👏



  31. Mean Mister Mustard on December 28, 2021 at 4:13 pm

    stone temple pilots isn’t or wasn’t grunge… LMAO



  32. The Phenix & Sonic Channel on December 28, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    Great decade but overated as hell



  33. Carl_Anderson on December 28, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    How could you mention coffee culture and not to include Seinfeld.



  34. mjfreaklove on December 28, 2021 at 4:16 pm

    Why isn’t ”Twin Peaks” in the ”coffee” section???



  35. Kailyn Sprouse on December 28, 2021 at 4:16 pm

    The only reason i’m here is bc at my school it’s decade day and i chose the 90s



  36. Strangers & Friends on December 28, 2021 at 4:17 pm

    Thank you for King of queens, friends and Nsync 🙋🏾‍♂️♥️



  37. Jesse Garcia on December 28, 2021 at 4:23 pm

  38. Grizwald Dickie on December 28, 2021 at 4:23 pm

    Urban culture….. Just say black folks mojo 😂😂😂



  39. The BIGOMN on December 28, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    The 90s was the shit and I’d gladly relive all of it but not as a kid growing up back home in Brooklyn NY but as my current self. No chat rooms where not the precursor to fascist book they were great and I met so many cool people back then. Wish chat rooms came back and that zuckerborg’s evil creation would just go away forever.



  40. 1990sForever on December 28, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    The top trend in the 90s was just having fun; such better times.



  41. Hilmust on December 28, 2021 at 4:26 pm

    European 90s trend: commit warcrimes in Bosnia



  42. Tammie Knuth on December 28, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    Tamekka tamekka 🙂



  43. Jesse Garcia on December 28, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    It’s all right cuz I’m saved buy the bell



  44. Alexandros Simitzis on December 28, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    Just wanted to point this out. Being a Michael Jordan fashionable back then and it’s still fashionable. Especially, in the 90s a lot of people wanted to be like Mike!



  45. Uptop215 on December 28, 2021 at 4:28 pm

  49. AM Conquer on December 28, 2021 at 4:33 pm

    I remember buying a new CD which were expensive.. opening the booklet looking at the pictures of the artists and lyrics of the songs while playing the songs on the component…. that is the 90s for me.



  50. unknown unknown on December 28, 2021 at 4:35 pm
