The greatest decade EVER! Disagree? Well, what did it give us: SNES, Megadrive (Genesis for you guys in the states), the original PSone. Compare the cartoons & kids shows from the 90s to the crap we have now (old Power Rangers ruled, now look at the new ones). Heck, compare the leaders of the 90s to the ones now (yes, back in the day Tony Blair was actually popular, and Bill Clinton is a better leader that Bush). OK, some music from now is good (Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, etc), but the dance music was way better than it is now! It was a better decade for Michael Jackson (admit it, Dangerous, HIStory and Blood on the Dance Floor are good), Television (reality TV had only just started), Music (OK, if you don't count the Spice Girls, Peter Andre, etc. But we had MC Hammer!) and even politics and world events. But most importantly, it was the decade me and my generation spent out childhood in. Plus Bush JNR wasn't the president and Chavs didn't exist.
My m8: Wanna go watch Fresh Prince?
Me: Let me finish playing on the SNES and listening to MC Hammer.
My M8: Before Fresh Prince let's watch cartoons on CITV.
Me: The 90s are so Fly!

Probably the greatest decade ever. Why?

Video gaming was awesome, gracing great consoles such as the Super Nintendo, the Sega Genesis, the original Sony Playstation and the Nintendo 64 and also gracing legendary games such as Super Metroid, Metal Gear Solid, Super Mario 64 and pretty much all of the Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy games released that decade.

Disney was on top form easier translation they were pretty much kicking ass, creating great film after great film e.g. Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.

Music was awesome, when MTV had more credibility and rock was at the top of the industry while rap had more meaning and creativity than today's shit. Examples of artist; Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machines, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Oasis, Blur, Nas, Notorious BIG, 2pac, Wu Tang Clan, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube.

TV was awesome, when cartoons where the total shit e.g. Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, The Simpsons, Beavus and Butthead, Reality TV was actually funny rather than annoying and pretentious and Sitcoms where clever and funny.

Wayne's World. That's all I have to say.

man, the nineties are the shit! Grunge was born, flannel shirts, dirty hair, and music one of a kind. It has something special. The nineties were the best and there will never ever be an era like that! It was so good, I'm obsessed. Music was different (as in good, and a hell of a lot better than now) and it brings back memories.

aha.. I LOVE the nineties!
the nineties fucking rock!
prep: ninties suck!
me: fuck u, how would u know?
prep: they did
me: I'll kick u r ass, run away before I strangle you with a flannel shirt!

The decade I grew up in, techno in its abundance, 1995 era music of techno/house rocked

then in 1997 the birth of Wild FM, sparked a series of music phase known as trance
The music back in the 90s even though old, is still one of a kind, nothing today is like it and brings back great memories

The second best era ever, the first being the 80s. In the 90s, Grunge was born, and men weren't afraid to wear ponytails. The infamous Furby doll was very popular in the 90s, as was the battle of the baggy pants rappers: MC Hammer Vs. Vanilla Ice.
