The 1990s is one of the best decades ever. Some people still cannot define this decade because it was everything. You can't put the 1990s in a box because it has so much diversity. The entertainment was great, the economy was prospering and good, and society was so much more simpler back then. We had the Internet, but the Internet and computers were basically luxuries. If you didn't have a computer in the 1990s, it was no big deal. Technology didn't dominate every aspect of people's lives back then. Gas was only like $1.00 and some change back then, very cheap compared to now. Some people like to hate on the 1990s because they either slept through the decade or don't know much about it. In fact, thousands to millions of people online have been getting really nostalgic about the 90s. It's getting to the point where some 2000s kids and some 80s kids try to claim the decade as their "childhood." The 1990s was the last golden decade in America. People have different names for the decade, but I call it the decade full of partying.

Although it ended on 31 Dec. 1999, its elements and style went up until 2003.

True 90's fashion started in 1992, when 80's fashion faded, and it ended on 2003.
Jane: In the early 2000s my friends and I wore colourful wrist bands and bottom bell jeans.

Timothy: Well I still used video tapes around that time. I bought my first DVD in 2004. The 1990's vibe was still present in 2000-03.

One of the most underrated decades of all time. Rap was at its BEST, weather it be underground or mainstream, and life wasn't so materialistic. People dressed casually and lived to the fullest. Everyone has there own opinion of this decade, but people who say 90s sucked actually slept on the decade. Creativity was active in the 90s and stuff actually got a chance to make to the radio, or tv screen. Unlike today where everything is bought out by corporations. Also, overall the youth had a lot more fun than nowadays.
1990's hip-hop mentality- Keeping it real, staying true to your roots and the art, having soul,little bit of gangsta.

Current "hip-hop" mentality- Make it rain!, we in da club, spend it all on her, swag, im the shit, IM A ROBOT!

A breakdancing move that was invented in the mid 1980s. Various origins for the name include it being thought of as what would be "the move of the 90s", but who named the move and why is a matter of opinion.

Essentially the move is a spinning, one handed handstand. It is usually performed without the other hand touching the ground for the duration of the spin, which can be more than 10 rotations.

Variations include the 2000, where both hands are clasped together below the head and spun on making balance more difficult.
"Have you seen Joe's 1990s? He can get six rotations now!"

The decade which saw corporate radio and major record labels finally kill rock and roll for good. The 1990's started with Vanilla Ice and ended with the *nSync Degree Boys. In the middle, Nirvana tried to save us, so they killed Kurt Cobain.
Thank you so much Clear Channel and Big Five Record Labels! Thanks to your unrelenting assault on artistry in the 1990's, we get treated to the same fifteen songs a day from eight "different" artists on twenty "different" radio stations played repeatedly!
