      The 90s were elementary school for me so my musical taste was nonexistent.
      Stuff that was awesome:
      Lots of video games: Pokemon, Golden Eye, Ocarina, Final Fantasy VII, Super Mario RPG
      Animorphs and "Gooseberms"

      Other stuff:
      The Macarena?!
      AOL

      I dono, it was elementary school: If it wasn't animated or a video game I didn't care much.
      All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

      HS Class of 1997. Yes, the 90s were awesome. The music back then is so much better than what is coming out these days.

      Does that make me old?

      No, I DESPISE Pearl Jam. Nirvana always has and always will suck. I have Bleach and I think that is a GREAT album, but Nevermind with all this whiney bitchey songs make me glad he had a 12 guage and did himself in. Plus the fact that EVERY. F'ING. MINUTE. they played Nirvana. All the tools with Nirvana t-shirts, and then the wankers who were crying when he maned up and offed his whiney ass

      Ah, so you're a hole fan, are you?

      I miss a little bit of the '90s.

      Mostly being free from life's stresses like work and bills, cheap gas, and just hopping in the car to go over to a person's house to see what is going on. Had a lot of fun in that decade - but i'm having more now.

      I was never was never in the Ten club or anything, but I did/do like Pearl Jam. I managed to get the cassette of of Ten a few months prior to radio play in my area. I was never a super Seattle gurnger but I can't deny that bands like PJ or Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, STP... they all influenced me to a degree. Probably like Metallica did in the late 80's. The only band I've ever despised was Nickelback.... and we can all agree on that.

      The 90's, I suppose, mostly were a time of freedom. I lived at home during college but my folks never bothered me. I could do pretty much what ever I wanted with in reason. I worked a **** tonne, made bank, and generally had a pretty damn good time.

      From about 1992-1997, gas was mostly free for me. I worked at a full service gas station owned by a man that was a crooked as a barrel of snakes. Is is wrong to steal from thieves?

      I remember once off of I-75 in TN or Kentucky paying .69/gal in about 1996? Even at the time it seemed almost free. My car got 9mpg on a good day, so that worked out well.

      Remember putting your dads VHS porn stash back exactly the way he had it to he would not notice?

      Same. Born in '87. The 90's was a pretty awesome time to grow up in, IMO. We're pretty much the last generation that remembers life without cell phones...didn't have one of my own until I was 17 and that was only because I was driving on my own and getting ready for college. Didn't have the internet at home until I was probably 8 or 9, maybe older. Ah, simpler times. My SIL was born in '95. Its scary sometimes how much of a difference 8 years can make.

      Hubby and I bought our first house last fall. We had an extra livingroom type room and had no clue what to do with it. Coworker of his was trying to get rid of an old tube TV so we snagged it and hooked up all of our old game systems to it in that room. NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, PS2. We have a PS1 as well but never really played it. Between the two of us, we had a lot of games, but we've been buying some on eBay lately that we didn't have or lost over the years...Goldeneye, Super Mario World, Super Mario All Stars. Its pretty awesome. We also have a VHS player hooked up...gonna grab some classic stuff from my parents house this weekend to watch. Space Jam being at the top of the list to bring home

      Are You Afraid of the Dark getting added to Netflix made my day last month.

      I love the 90s so damn much, for so many of the things already posted.

      Wow... you all make me feel old. (Graduated college in '94)

      The 90s were great though.

      I would even group the years 2000 and 2001 (up to September 11, 2001) as great years. Everything since 9/11/01 has been very different and not as care-free.
