* TheSeventies: Nothing says the '90s more than nostalgia for the '70s. Bellbottoms came back in style for a brief moment. ''Film/DazedAndConfused'', ''Film/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'', ''Series/That70sShow'', ''Film/TheBradyBunch'' movies, ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' jokes, etc. The '90s itself (along with the '80s) is now the nostalgic decade of TheNewTens.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The early part of the decade could be best described for many like a bad hangover, with many disillusioned former yuppies finding emotional emptiness and the rest suffering from the ailing economy, and a new generation coming into adulthood with an appropriately pessimistic outlook.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The early part of the decade could be best described for many like a bad hangover, with many disillusioned former yuppies finding emotional emptiness and the rest suffering from the ailing economy, and a new generation coming into adulthood with an appropriately pessimistic outlook. Pop culture also reflected this, with WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons, for one, reflecting upon familial dysfunction, and the frivolous HairMetal subgenre was driven out by the rise of AlternativeRock to the mainstream.

[[http://www.alluc.com/stream/Michael+Jordan Michael Jordan]] reigned, retired, and [[RightfulKingReturns returned]]. Mark [=McGwire=] and other beefy dudes beat out Roger Maris as home-run king, [[BlatantLies totally legitimately]]. The [[TheEvilEmpire New York Yankees]] "dream team" inspired Americans with good old-fashioned teamwork from 1997-2001. David Beckham became a star. [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague The NHL]] introduced a ridiculous new rule which they would abolish after it brought extreme controversy in the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals. FOXSports introduced a glowing puck for American audiences. This also crashed and burned. The game's greatest player, WayneGretzky, retired at the close of the decade.

The Nineteen Nineties: The last decade before 9/11 when the world was just getting over the UsefulNotes/ColdWar and starting to fear [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]]. All of the kids (of whom the older ones were of the cynical and disaffected Generation X) listened to {{grunge}} bands, wore [[TheOtherRainforest flannel]] or a Creator/JenniferAniston haircut while watching ''Series/{{Friends}}'', ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' and ''Series/TheXFiles''. Or they listened to GangstaRap, wore their baseball caps [[GangstaStyle sideways]] paired with ridiculously baggy cargo pants and routinely "capped" people who "dissed" them, or they were beaten up by police and taped. Everything was neon, colorful, and TotallyRadical. Cowabunga!
