I think cartoons nowadays are pretty good too. We have stuff like Regular Show, Gravity Falls, Legend of Korra, Adventure Time. And those are only currently airing things.

Really the 90s only had a few great cartoons like Gargoyles, powerpuff girls, and rocko's modern life.

I'd say my lesser degree of cynicism.

Humanity is so frustrating that I occasionally feel like jumping off of the nearest bridge.

My bands included Alice in Chains, Primus, Pearl Jam, Mad Season, The Screaming Trees, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Rage Against the Machine, The Pixies, Sublime, SIlverchair, Tool, Korn,

RHCP, Nine Inch Nails, Bush, Black Crowes, just to name a few.

The Seattle movement was something else.

I also miss the anime and SNL.

I miss music television before it turned into reality TV and hip hop garbage such as MTV, Fuse and VH1.

Hell yes to the bands in bold.

Bro you need to listen to Mad Season.

The blue happy sunny skies, now they are filled with toxic chemtrails and depressed grey clouds.

Also miss my childhood, and 90s had best everything, music, games, tv shows, cloths everything!

I miss the house scene of the 90's.
There was a sense of creativity back then that is kind of lost now. Illegal house parties, held and visited by people who had a passion for the music. Clubs that had a lot of freedom, outrageous outfits, art and sex on stage? Everything was possible back then. That freedom is now gone, it's only about money now, not about creativity. I miss that. I really hope there will be a massive youth movement again that rebels against this.

The rise of Fox (Married with Children, Simpsons, and Cops).

Amazing cartoons (Johnny bravo, dexters lab, cow and chicken, rocko's modern life, angry beavers, pokemon, ahh real monsters, beavis and butthead, 2 stupid dogs, ren and stimpy, dragon ball z, Kablam, Doug, Hey Arnold......ect).

Seinfeld is considered one of the best shows ever made.

Music was decent (too much one hit wonders but some solid bands came out of that decade).

The hype and excitement during the late 90s pokemon boom was interesting (people went crazy over the show, cards, and games). The games where actually pretty good along with the show and collecting the cards was fun

The television, the overall customer service experience, and just the innocence and stress-free lifestyle I had as a young kid.

#61 Posted by Laihendi (5828 posts) -

The gamespot site worked back in the 90's.

Also the height of the pokemon craze was great.

In the 90s, especially Clinton's second term, it just seemed like the middle class was finally winning. Income was based on education, and everyone had a 401k that was making money.

Today the middle class is being shit on, pensions are gone, employment is based solely on who you know, not what you know, and the entertainment industry is as pc and generic as you can get.

And what keeps you you 3 from jumping? To be clear: I'm not saying you should jump or anything, just curious to know what is it that makes you cling to this life?

I did say occasionally and It was'nt meant entirely in a litteral sense.

Personally, I guess my instincts and sense of responsibility makes me cling to life.....

Regardless of how pointless everything becomes, my body operates with a different agenda and it's not like I can just abandon parents, siblings and my cat.

Feel free to find that pathetic, but I'm actually being sincere.

I miss the simplicity of it all. No smartphones, no social media interruptions.

Also, I miss the whole music scene, the live music and record stores. Most of the smaller venues now, have closed down, especially CBGBs. The whole East Village scene has now become too touristy, too much hipsters and young urban professionals who are not local.

007 Goldeneye, Lan Parties (Quake, warcraft 2, SC), being able to frag people and look their face right away :)

Unlike pretty much everyone else now-a-days who thinks everything from the past is better than everything in the present. I dont agree. I do miss things from the 90s though. I was born in 1991 so I was very young throughout the decade. If I miss anything....its the lack of responsibility I had back then. I could just enjoy everything and never had a care in the world. I didnt know about the things going on in the world. I'd never go back though.

Probably the TV programs.

#80 Posted by BeinKemen (12 posts) -

Just being a child in general.
Having a care-free life running around in the playground playing tag with my friends.
The music was better, children's TV was better (Dexter's Lab, Ed Edd and Eddy, Johnny Bravo etc), and everyone seemed a lot friendlier.

Nothing. How can you miss dial-up? Faxing? Radiohead? Shitty fashion?

I miss Nintendo having a good console. That might be it.

Meh, it's not like faxing is gone. Many businesses still use them.

Grunge music. I tuned out to new music around '98.

The music mostly. I was really into the grunge/alternative scene. Layne Staley and Bradley Nowell were my heros. The music kind of took a backseat once the pop and hip hop scene contaminated our ears.

My bands included Alice in Chains, Primus, Pearl Jam, Mad Season, The Screaming Trees, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Rage Against the Machine, The Pixies, Sublime, SIlverchair, Tool, Korn,

RHCP, Nine Inch Nails, Bush, Black Crowes, just to name a few.

I also miss the anime and SNL.

I miss music television before it turned into reality TV and hip hop garbage such as MTV, Fuse and VH1.

This.

I know it was said that "Rock and Roll will never die," but I think it's dead now. I loved the Seattle music scene from the '90s. Pearl Jam is the only band I'll ever bother to go see in concert for the remainder of my days on earth.

I really miss those powder cheese fries Burger King had, and I also miss those butterfinger balls.

It all seemed great. I think that's one reason I love listening to 90's pop music so much. I kind of get the same good feeling I had listening to the same songs growing up, if that makes any sense.

Agreed - I still listen to 90's music - nothing like a bit of S Club 7 in the car to perk me up on the way to work :)

#88 Edited by platinumking320 (666 posts) -

Grunge, early EDM but MOSTLY golden Era Hip Hop. You RARELY had to scavenge the darkest corners of the internet for cool or funky beats.

Now this 24/7 crunk, synthpop and trap overexposure (and yes that's all it really is folks) is literally driving me bonkers

greedy ass sample troll lawyers ruined everything.

Looking at the image for the video....WTF...why is his bottom lip the color of a white person's lip? Maybe he has the skin condition that Michael Jackson had.

Watching the amazing Brett Favre play for the Packers (his glory years), the first season of Power Rangers, Batman The Animated series, X-Men, Star Trek TNG (well it started in the late 80's but w/e), Stargate SG-1, The X-Files (mmmm Scully) and Squaresoft before they sold their souls.

In the 90s you could go online and download term papers and teachers were not wise enough to know yet.

#94 Posted by xdude85 (4388 posts) -

The music was amazing, especially the alternative rock scene.

Games were more straight-forward and creative, no DLC or micro-transaction bullshit, no patches you had to download for a newly released buggy game, and no online subscription fees. All you had to do was invite a couple of friends over.

The economy, things were great under Clinton. Plus no major wars that the U.S. was highly involved in.

Television was so much better too.
