Grunge- I’m not particularly a fan of it, but it killed 80’s hair metal.

I don’t remember a whole lot of it (I was just a youngster) but I remember the cartoons were a lot better than the ones we have now.

18 year old girls.

also, the World Wide Web (well, the explosion of it as well). Some awesome movies (Office Space), and rap-metal, because it makes it easier to pick out a**holes in a crowded area.

The Internet
Hybrid cars

Some of the toys I used to play with. Skip-its, My Little Ponies, Pogs (not sure what I was thinking with these), Simon, Ants in the Pants (a personal favorite), Clue, Don’t Break the Ice, Cooties (another favorite), Pound Puppies, Furby, Tamagotchis,Slip n Slides.
I take back the Furby thing. I hated my Furby.
TV shows like Carissa Explains It All, Doug, Rocko’s Modern Life, Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Keenan and Kel, Double Dare, and on and on and on.

Around 1999 I started to go through puberty. Good times.

MooKoo's avatar

Grunge, The Smashing Pumpkins, the end of ‘Hair Metal’, the Internet’s uprising, Furby’s freakin’ out the FBI, and just good times.

The cartoons.
@adreamofautumn I still have songs from ‘The Beets’ in my mp3player. :D

indie rock, internet, pop music before it completely died, same with rap music, alternative rock. i mostly miss like the second half of the 90s, from like 1995 to 1999. i liked 2000 a lot too but that’s not 1990’s anymore. I liked the cartoons. Much better than they are now. I liked how Pearl Jam was loved by like every teen girl yet if you play them any other hard rock, they freak and hate it. I liked Oasis when they were new. I liked Alanis Morisette but some of my friends were divided on her looks. Some thought she was hot, others thought she had a horse face. i hated the titanic, but i didn’t love james bond goldeneye. I loved the nintendo 64 and the sega dreamcast. I loved really everything of the 90’s.
