On the business side of the internet sensation came the Dotcom Bubble of the late '90s, powering the biggest economic boom of the 20th century, putting even the best years of TheRoaringTwenties, TheFifties, and TheEighties to shame, meaning people had more money than ever to spend on all the exciting new technology, while at the same time ironically having less cash in their pockets than ever thanks to another exciting new technology, digital banking. ATMs appeared on every street corner and allowed people to withdraw as much money from their accounts as they needed anywhere at anytime 24/7 without having to deal with asshole bank employees. In store debit often eliminated the need for cash at all, and the credit card was never more widely used (partly because more places than ever were accepting them, and partly because people didn't quite grasp the long term consequences of their overuse and abuse yet). [[NoPaperFuture Some even predicted the end of paper money all together.]] As the Web Browser was invented, garage entrepreneurs sold [[VaporWare content-free websites]] for hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Nineties also saw the largest government budget surplus in American history.

Everyone attended music festivals like Lollapallooza or Lilith Fair -- or at least, claimed to their friends that they did, as they were just as likely doing either "[[MatingDance Lambada]]" or "[[DanceSensation The Macarena]]". In the US {{Grunge}} dominated the [[LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn real life soundtrack]] for five years, before collapsing into an [[ItsPopularNowItSucks identity]] crisis. Music/KurtCobain continued chart-topping for two years [[DeadArtistsAreBetter after his death]], alongside AlanisMorissette and Music/AliceInChains, eventually replaced by pop music during the latter half of the decade. Across the pond, meanwhile, {{Britpop}} and the Cool Britannia movement soared; Music/{{Oasis}} and Music/{{Blur}} had their famous chart war, while the Music/SpiceGirls became cultural icons. In academia, modernism was out and [[FromACertainPointOfView relativism]] was in; the magazine ''Social Text'' published a [[WordSaladPhilosophy word salad hoax]] by an angry physicist as the "Culture Wars" smoldered between scientists, anti-abortionists, and radical academicians. Raves and Ecstasy became huge, along with the PerishingAltRockVoice. {{Boy band}}s and [[RiotGrrrl girl groups]] began to dominate the market, and two major GangstaRap stars were killed within months of [[Music/TupacShakur each]] [[Music/TheNotoriousBIG other]] following a war of egos between the east and west coasts.

* AxesAtSchool: This was the first time school shootings recieved national media coverage and was seen as an actual issue. While there had been school shootings in the United States every year since TheSixties, it wasn't until the tragedies at Paducah, Springfield, and especially UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}}, that it was considered a real issue by the public.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The early part of the decade could be best described for many like a bad hangover, with many disillustioned 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.

The Reagan/Thatcher/Gorbachev era ended with a bang as "greed is good" got replaced by the 1987 Wall Street Crash and postwar recession ennui through the early 90s. In the U.S., Ross Perot led a political revolution of pissed-off independent voters; dissatisfaction with TheMan became the norm and ConspiracyTheorist talk radio became the rage. UsefulNotes/BillClinton got elected thanks to UsefulNotes/GulfWar Syndrome, then impeached. Seattle coffee culture was all the rage as a Starbucks opened up on every street corner, driving fear into the hearts of {{Hipster}}s everywhere, who sought solace in PostHardcore, {{Postmodernism}}, and other things with "post-" and "-core". In the U.K., Tony Blair and his 'New Labour' swept to power on a landslide, hailing a new era of optimism and 'Cool Britannia', fuelled by an explosion of bands like 'Girls Aloud', 'the Spice Girls', 'Blue', 'Maroon Five' and 'Oasis', and the transformation of Premier League football into an international spectacle, sport mingling with celebrity culture - most notably with the marriage of David and Victoria 'Posh Spice' Beckham.

Modern culture's obsession with electronics was born in TheEighties and became dominant in the TurnOfTheMillennium, but it really came of age in the last half of this decade as people switched out computer models every other year. Dolly the sheep was cloned. GPS became operational. Cell phones became smaller and more common. Home computers that were actually easy to use instead of requiring a degree in programming hit the market and everybody wanted one, and this, coupled with the invention of the World Wide Web [[note]]Invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee[[/note]], inevitably led to the explosion of the Internet [[note]][[MemeticMutation Invented by]] UsefulNotes/AlGore[[/note]], which opened the floodgates. [[TheInternetIsForPorn Porn]], [[WebOriginal/LOLCats gifs of kittens]], [[RuleThirtyFour porn]], jokes about the [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Clinton]] sex scandal and [[EvilOverlordList evil overlords]], and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment porn]] [[RuleThirtyFour involving Clinton]] were widely accessible for the first time. [[MessageBoard Bulletin Boards]] hooked up, moving from dial-in systems to the web. People began to band together to discuss their opinions of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and ''Franchise/StarWars'' on {{Usenet}}, the original "message board" system. [[EternalSeptember Soon, other people joined in]] to talk about other shows, too, and thus the seeds for the birth of [[Wiki/TVTropes this wiki]] were planted. So while in 1990 teenagers who "spent time on computer message boards" were nerds, by 1999 it was a social stigma among teenagers if you didn't have an e-mail address.

"The 3D revolution" meant vector graphics, which meant "[[{{Cyberspace}} virtual reality]]" and ''[[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D Wolfenstein]]''. {{Superman}} [[DeathIsCheap came back]] (albeit with a [[VideoGame/{{Superman 64}} horrible game]]). ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'', ''MortalKombat'', [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] ''{{Pokemon}}'' scared the MoralGuardians, with Doom as one of the perpetrators that triggered the Columbine High massacre.
