Subject: 70s influences on the 90s

Written By: TakaWuKid91 on 09/30/12 at 2:22 pm

Kind of like how the 80s influenced the 00s, do you think the 70s ( or even the 60s) played a role in the pop culture of the 90s?

Well, in the U.S. during the mid 00s there was a huge 80s nostalgia...

The 90's had a mixture of the 60's and 70's, with a little 50's thrown in. The 2000s had the 70s and 80s. The 2010s will have the 80s and 90s.

The 2010s already do have 80s and 90s influences.

70s and 90s music remind me of each other. They were both very "organic".

Yes, I was a teen in the 90s.

I remember some of the fads included bell bottoms, tight tees, platform shoes, and shag hairstyles.

And at my highschool there were many retro songs that were popular including Bob Marley, Abba, The Doors, Staying Alive, YMCA, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Joker, and The Time Warp.

Every decade has some kind of influence on the decade(s) that followed.

I think the 80's have a stronger influence on the 10's. This is why - the early 2000s were actually very close to the later 80s. To someone born in the late 80s or early 90s, obviously 1988 and 2001 seem worlds apart, but if you are older than 30 now, they wouldn't seem quite as different. Even 1991 was still more or less the same era as the 80's and 2003 was only 12 years after that, so the 80's was still very fresh on people's minds and not something they'd actually be interested in bringing back. Teenagers had memories of the 80's as late as 2006 and of the early 90's, which still had a lot of the 80's essence until just a few years ago.

Fast forward a bit to late 2012, the present, and it's a bit different. No current teenagers existed in the 80s, in fact even a 19 year old was born in 1993 so the oldest person younger than 20 was born when the last bit of the 80's died. Even a modern day 30 year old only remembers the late 80s, not that 30 is old of course but when you consider the average American is 37 years old, we're pretty close to nearly half of society not remembering the 80s at all. Nobody younger than 17 today even has any meaningful memories of the 90s!

The teenagers of the 80's are now in their 40s and have a lot of money, and of course they are going to want to revive certain aspects of their childhood. I think in the 80's and 90's people didn't wait as long to have kids, and also the Baby Boom is just so large that the 60's and 70's acquired classic status very quickly. The 80's and early 90's were dated and uncool very fast but have only truly acquired classic status in the past few years.

To answer your question yes the 90's definitely had a strong 70's influence. 70's music and TV was very much a part of my childhood, it wasn't really that old in the 90's which is pretty amazing I mean the Village People was pretty much still just a few years ago in say 1994. Now the early 70's are 40+ years ago and the entire cast of MASH look like they belong in a bingo parlour. The 80's took a bit longer for a few reasons IMO: people having kids later and the population being replaced at a slower rate, the smaller clout of Gen X compared to the Boomers and the fact the anti-80s sentiment of the 90's lasted tell into the 00's.

I have been looking for a Dozzy doll for about a year! I want one so bad. My friends think I'm crazy. So glad to see that other people remember him.
