I’M FUCKING SCREAMING OMGGGGGG THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE 90S TO ROMANTICIZED BY NON-90S KIDS FUCK
I feel like a legend.
I feel fucking old.
it’s more like early 2000s than 90s though?
I’m (*cough*) 50 – so imagine how confused I am about when this golden age was supposed to be. But, yeh, even I can spot that at least one of the ‘1990s’ bands is very late 1990s.
Punks being cool, eyeliner without foundation, ‘tartan skirts’ (i.e. first mini-kilts, then other styles), badge-covered denim: all these things were around from the mid/late 1970s, extending well into the 1980s. Mohawks/mohicans: slightly later 1970s (none of the original punks had them). But, strangely, we didn’t have ‘1990s sitcoms’ yet then. ;) Or the listed bands ‘on the radio’…
Yeah this person is definitely mistaken. As someone who came of age during this time, people most certainly cared about belly tops, pop music, computers and whatnot.
I mean Blink 182 was battling people like Britney Spears and The Backstreet Boys for #1 on the TRL countdown, from what I remember crop tops were actually a huge deal back then, only we called them belly shirts.
I guess what was “different” was in mainstream pop music, rock/pop punk/nu-metal bands were nearly as popular as the “teen pop” stuff with a young audience, which is definitely not how it is today (although rock based music is starting to come back into popularity again for the general teen demo).
1990s nostalgia is so TWEE.
