The 199os seem to be making a huge comeback in the world of fashion and music. Bruno Mars's most recent hit could have been released to similar success back in 1993, proving that the decade is back. The media seems to glorify the 1990s as a decade that had some of the coolest music, toys and fashion. As such, you are hard pressed to go anywhere without getting a taste of nostalgia. Many shows from the decade a receiving a reboot so that those of us with children can introduce our kids to the shows that we loved so much growing up.
The start of the decade brought with it the end of the 1980s in terms of music, and it didn't take long for this to change. 1991 was a monumental year in the changing of the music scene. Glam rock and hair metal died thanks to bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Some bands from the 80s survived while most fell off the face of the earth. Rap became a fixture on the radio, and pop would receive an overhaul towards the end of the decade.
So, do you fancy yourself a true 90s kid? Well then, this quiz should be a breeze.
1"With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us"
This song was instrumental in changing the landscape of music, effectively killing off another sub-genre in the process. It sounded like nothing that had been on the radio before, and the music video helped it reach an even larger audience back in the early 1990s. Talk about a true classic.
2"Tell me why, Ain't nothin' but a heartache. Tell me why, Ain't nothin' but a mistake"
Say what you will about boy bands, but we can guarantee that you still know every word of this song. The genre may leave people making fun of it, but the fact that people still know all the words nearly 20 years later is a testament to how well written the song is.
3"And I'm here, to remind you, Of the mess you left when you went away"
After trying her hand at being a pop star in her native Canada, Alanis Morissette decided to stay true to who she was and release one of the best records of the decade. The album itself spawned a number of hit singles, but this song was perhaps the best of the bunch.
4"One, two, three and to the four, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre is at the door"
Admittedly, this isn’t the chorus of the song, and for good reason. The chorus itself is a repeat of several words, so we decided to go with this memorable line. Fans of rap music have heard this song a countless number of times, at it remains an all-time classic tune.
