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!
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
