    90 Reasons why the 1990s Ruled

    Okay, I haven't actually come up with 90 reasons yet, but it would have to be very simple. Why is it simple? Because the 90s ruled.

    So help build up the list. I'll get the ball rolling. If you're going to participate, then also give an explanation why you like the item you added to the list.


    1. WCW. WCW was the best wrestling company of all time. You had the amazing cruiser weight division (also the light heavyweight division in the early 90s), the NWO hostile takeover, Raven's Flock, several versions of The Four Horsemen, Sting going from the surfer fan favorite to the Crow dark avenger, and much more.


    2. The Grunge style and attitude. The music and alternative clothing styles ruled. I still have some of my old flannel shirts. It's too bad kids now are too busy being lame instead of trying to be slackers and rebels.


    3. Figures of speech. Everyone was very sarcastic and said "not" at the end of their sentences. We had a lot of other great figures of speech. Don't agree? Get real.


    4. The Matrix (part 1). I didn't see it until around 2000/2001. I shouldn't have waited, but it's still a great movie.


    5. Parker Lewis Can't Lose. Great TV show for the first two seasons. I remember it crashing and burning after that.

    6. Bill Clinton. Pretty self explanatory.

    edit- Oh, and I'm pretty sure a lot of us were born in the 80's/early 90's, so a lot of stuff that went on during the 90's we were kids for, so naturally a lot of stuff was awesome to us. Especially shows on Nickelodeon and stuff. Kennan and Kel, All That, GUTS, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Double Dare Rugrats, Doug, etc. Then you had shows like Fresh Prince, Seinfeld, Boys Meets World, Family Matters, Saved By The Bell, Home Improvement, Friends, etc. And POWER RANGERS.

    And that's just TV. So much other cool stuff to list but it would take way too long. <3 the 90's.

    The 1990s were awesome no doubt! The 1990s had some of the best Alternative Rock such as; Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice N Chains. Also, who could forget the return of Woodstock (aside from the last one they had) and Lalapaloza (SP?). Not to mention, in the late 1990s, North America was introduced to the beyond awesome Rammstein! I remember going to the Family Values tour in 1998 and seeing Rammstein, Orgy, Korn, and Limp Bizkit when I was 14. That was the best concert ever!

    I also killed many of my brain cells playing the Super Nintendo during the early 1990s playing classics such as Final Fantasy Four, FF 6, and Shadow Run. This would later transition over the Playstation where games like Final Fantasy VII, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and the first Resident Evil Games were introduced. Man, the only thing I remember about Junior High was playing football and going home to play Final Fantasy VII after practice. As a matter of fact, my girlfriend at the time broke up with me because I blew her off on a date just to sit home and play Final Fantasy VII. What a way to spend a Saturday night?! Dominos Pizza and killing Shinra Soldiers as Cloud Strife!

    3. 90s Slang
    4. The Matrix
    5. Parker Lewis

    13. Ned's Atomic Dustbin. Most underrated band of the 90s. Grey Cells Green.


    14. Street Fighter 2. You played the game and probably wonder how you wasted so much time on it.


    Keep em coming.

    15. Hip Hop - You had Jay-Z, Nas, Notorious BIG, 2Pac (overrated, but still good), and Wu Tang Clan breaking into the business. You had '80s guys like Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and LL Cool J still going hard too.

    16. Pop tarts - I haven't been able to find these anywhere since the '90s, so they must've only existed then. They always made for a good, easy breakfast.

    17. Law and Order - Before cops shows became all about forensics and technology and goofy one-liners, they were about the people being represented by two separate yet equally important groups. I still watch reruns on my days off; they still rule.

    18. Playstation - Needs no elaborating.

    20. Goosebumps books!

    21. Going to the movies was cheap and the movies were worth paying for.

    22. The Simpsons were a never miss show.

    The OJ Simpson trial was captivating entertainment and really began the trend towards "reality" style television which now permeates every aspect of pop culture.

    The Mighty Ducks, Pokemon, and video games were my life.

    It's hard to pick why certain reasons why the 90's were so based, because there are so many reasons.

    Awesome rap. Wu-Tang, NWA, whatever, it was gangster-rizzle.

    Oh, of course, the cereal aisle!

    Really, though, I didn't think of mail ordering. I'll have to look into that. And the chocolate/Nutella pop tarts were ​that good.

    I remember reading the first three books, which were hilarious, if you were young and into scat humour. I remember, from the third book I think, the villain who forced everyone to change their names according to those charts he wrote up. Best believe I had new names for my brother, parents, and people from school I didn't like.

    lol, New Zealand must suck. They've never gone anywhere here in the states. I don't know what I'd do in the mornings in college without pop tarts to start the day. Ahhhh.
