    If you're listening to the radio, I think the 90's produced better music. There were some really good alternative bands back in the day when 'alternative' truly was 'alternative.' Now, most of the popular stuff today sounds bland and unoriginal.

    I hardly listen to the radio now. I mostly listen to my CD collection or whatever good I can pull up online.
    I agree the music is not as good. There are certain periods of time where there seemed to be a spike in quality and I recall the early to mid 90s was one of those times. Tori Amos for example. Right now is sort of "blah". On the bottom end of the curve from a creativity standpoint.

Things were in bright colors, loud and fun! ESXP paradise! Change for the better was in the air. An endless party.
    This is the thing that sticks out the most for me. It was without question a much more optimistic time. I think a lot of it had to do with the economy and it's trajectory at the time.

    Only in the 90's would wearing a condom as an eye patch be considered social commentary, as opposed to a sign of a decline in one's mental health. Out of every crappy trend to die out and be rehashed by a future nostalgia and irony driven generation, this is one I'm most definitely looking forward to seeing my children bring back for their generation.

    Best things about '90's:

    Hipsters were then called "alternative" or "grunge"

    Lollapalooza outdoor festival

    Rrriot Grrls (hardcore punk feminism i.e. angry white working class women)

    Trainspotting

    lunchbox-as-purse

    raves

    ---------

    But frankly because I wasn't a little kid in the 90's I don't remember it as being all that different from now; I think hipsters are just the continuation of alternative/grunge and that electronic music has just continued to progress and get better, which are the two things I cared about in the 90's besides environmentalism, which has just grown bigger, and feminism, which has just gone more mainstream.

    I don't really feel nostalgic for the 90's, I guess. I think people just like stuff that reminds them of when they were little kids, which is why I like the early to mid 80's, I think.

    There were cool things that happened in the 90's, though. Like the television series Twin Peaks, and the breakdown of the Soviet Union.
