A great fucking decade. There was the classic old dial up internet, good cartoons, movies, music, sex, drugs, culture, tv, etc. Typically considered the hangover of the party 80's, but if the 90s was a hangover then I'd get drunk every night just to get a hangover.
Example 1:

From good nickelodeon and cartoon network to Austin Powers to Oasis to the pre 9/11 NYC and world in general, the 90's were the last great years in history.

Example 2:

When the internet started owning our lives.
The 90s gave birth to the World Wide Web, and the very first internet meme.

The golden age of everything. Rap (Nas, Big L, Big Pun, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Wu-Tang, anything not Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, or Drake), fashion (ugly patterns, obnoxious stripes, jean shorts, baseball caps with green brim bottoms and adjustable clip things on back, Reebok pump shoes, '95 jordans, denim jackets, awesome dollar store sunglasses), Nickelodeon (Catdog, Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, Hey Arnold, Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy, Rugrats, Rocket Power), Cartoon Network (Ed, Edd and Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, Batman: The Animated

Series, Powepuff Girls, Dexter's Lab, Samurai Jack, anything on Cartoon Cartoon), slang (radical/rad, killer, sweet, solid, awesome, booyah, dag, etc. pretty much anything from Ninja Turtles or Rocket Power), movies (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura, anything else with Jim Carrey, Space Jam, Fight Club and the Matrix yes they were 90's, Jurassic Park, Big Lebowski, Goodfellas, Toy Story, Lion King, Groundhog Day, Pulp Fiction, Power Rangers the Movie), general fun (cops and robbers/manhunt, tag, roller-hockey/street hockey, whiffle ball, ding-dong-ditch, waking up at 10am and going outside without even batting an eyelid, playing with action figures, SEGA Genesis, Nintendo 64), and simply the innocence of being a kid back then.
Everything in today's world sucks. We should all revert back to the 90's.

The most kick ass decade ever.
Man I wish I was in the 90's again
by The open minded metal listener December 28, 2010
The top decade when it comes to television. Nickelodeon was the best with All That, CatDog, The Angry Beavers, Rocket Power, etc. This was also the decade when internet became popular.
"I wish I could go back to the 1990s with all the amazing TV shows."

An Adjective describing something that relates to the decade. Usually used frequently by Ben Bennett.
Ben Bennett is at his best friends funeral, and when the priest asks for a moment of silence, all you hear is sniffling, and a very loud "SO FUCKING 90's"

One of the best decades ever (Americans could say the '20s but I can't), good music (Mambo No. 5 (Can't remember who sung that), Scatman Ski-Ba-Bop-Da-Dop-Bop by Scatman John, I'm Blue by Eiffel 65, Gonna Make you Sweat by C+C Music Factory, Macarena by Los del Rio. good films (Die Hard 2 and With a Vengence, Lethal Weapon 3 and 4, Memphis Belle, Braveheart, Saving Private Ryan, Terminator 2, Toy Story 1 and 2 :-D etc etc)
Good TV (The Simpsons became big and there are many other good programmes), good times (America, Britain, ireland and most nations in South-East Asia were going through an economic boom, in 1999 the Dow Jones reached 12,000, the highest it has ever been and the FTSE 100 reached just over 6,000, again in 1999, the highest that has ever been) good toys (Croc 1 and 2, Gex 1,2 and 3, PS1, Time Crisis etc etc)
An example of an argument between a teen, who was a kid in the 90's and a young kid (the teen is my age but isn't me)

Kid: born '97, digging it! :-D

Teen: '97?! You were only 3 in 2000!

Kid: So?

Teen: You start being a kid when you're 5-7

Kid: When were you born?

Teen: 1993, so I was 7 in 2000

Kid: The 90's culture didn't end until 2002

Teen: So, you where a kid during the time of the 90's culture but not the decade itself

Kid: You could class me as a 90's kid, because I was a kid in the time we still had the culture

Teen: In a way, but you were not a kid in the actual decade

Kid: You don't have to be a kid in the 90's to be a '90s kid!, you just have to be in the culture

Teen: So you are a part-'90s kid, lets leave it at that
