The '90s were a lovable, quirky, amazing, diverse and sometimes strange time in music. The decade's pop culture was pretty much the same.
A lot of stuff happened in those 10 years, and we picked out some of the highlights below.
So, the comedy about nothing began in the late '80s, but it really hit its stride in the '90s and lasted through most of the decade. When the show got to its finale (in the courthouse and with all of those cameos), we weren't quite ready to let it go.
Could anyone have predicted that people would go nuts over toy animals stuffed with plastic pellets? Some people did, buying them for hundreds of dollars. Many now go for a few bucks on eBay.
Oh, 1994. You gave us those six friends, that hilariously large New York apartment and the coffee shop, Central Perk, where they hung out.
The Internet was actually created decades ago, but the '90s saw the invention of HTML and included the era of CompuServe and all of those free America Online CDs sent in the mail. By the end of the decade, you could talk (or be harassed) in chat rooms, buy stuff on eBay or download huge catalogs of music from Napster.
Can you remember any other movies that came out in 1997? “As Good As It Gets,” “The Full Monty,” “Good Will Hunting” and “L.A. Confidential” were all up for the best picture Oscar that year, but “Titanic” took home the trophy. The film has taken in more than $2.1 billion in box office revenue since its release. (It's still No. 2 on the all-time worldwide box office chart.)
We started the decade with the debut of consoles such as Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis and closed it out playing games on the Sony Playstation and Nintendo 64. We made the leap from two-dimensional pixels to three-dimensional polygons. The '90s also saw the introduction of memory cards, games on disc and online gaming.
