Subject: I've seen a lot of those '90s nostalgia montages but this made me cringe...

Whoever made this apparently thinks the things in the left column represent the '90s? Let's break this down.
-Aaron Carter made it big in 2000 (he was also just as irritating as Justin Bieber)
-Lizzie McGuire started in 2001
-Zoog is(was?) merely a programming block on Disney Channel, which itself has been around since 1983
-Etch-a-Sketch is from 1960
-Gel pens I recall being popular when I was in about 4th grade around 2000

The only true '90s thing on there is the tamagotchi...and even the Furby is pushing it since those peaked in popularity in the very late '90s.

Probably made by a mid/late '90s born, I mean it's strange to me that the late '90s is getting all this love, imo that period sucked ass big time.
These "90s kids" are stretching things from the 2000s because most of them have very little first hand memories of the '90s. In the early '00s(or now) I never called myself an '80s kid, I was too busy thinking about the future to be nostalgic, it just seems weird that mere teenagers are all misty and wistful about the '90s in 2013. ???

It's kind of weird, isn't it? Didn't teenagers use to be more present-oriented, and not so much into whatever was trendy when they were little kids or before they were born? In any case, this nostalgia craze is really getting tiresome, and I speak as a '90s child.

Justin Bieber is waaaay more popular than Aaron Carter was. Justin is a huge star, kind of like the female Britney Spears.

Lizzy McGuire or Hillary Duff wasn't as huge as Hannah Montana or Miley Cyrus is now.

As for the other two things, I have no idea. ;D

The only difference between Aaron Carter and Justin Bieber is that Bieber at least has some discernible talent, whereas the only "talent" Aaron Carter possessed was that he was lucky enough to be the little brother of that dude in the Backstreet Boys.

What I find so funny about this thing is the fact that someone put that amount of work into something that is so factually inaccurate. I mean, you spend a half hour in Photoshop putting all that together, but you can't take a half second on Google to verify that Lizzie McGuire didn't actually come out in the 90's? Really?

There should be a movie about a kid whose obsessed with the "90's" (actually the 2000's) who wishes to go back to the 90's, goes back to the 90's only to find its a completely different decade from what he was thinking of, and has to find his way back to the present.

Even if Lizzie McGuire managed to debut in say, 1999, but still end in 2003-4, I still wouldn't consider it "90s" because the vast majority of it would have still aired in the '00s. On that note, I don't consider Spongebob a '90s show despite the fact that it did start in 1999, because it aired across the entire '00s decade and continues to air new episodes in the '10s.

I was thinking of Clarissa as well. Or Alex Mac.

I don't know if there really is a '90s equivalent of Aaron Carter/Justin Bieber. I mean there are the Backstreet Boys but I can't think of a solo artist/teen idol. Tommy Page maybe? But he was a one hit wonder from 1990.

I never understood this whole 90s kids thing.

I mean if you were in your teens and 20s, yeah, you would be nostalgic about the decade as far as movies, music, and fashion.  I never heard older groups getting super nostalgic about being 8 years old in the 70s and 80s that they have to refer themselves as "X kid."

Seems to be that this 90s kid thing is more of a meme than an actual movement.  A weird meme at that.

The is reason is some people can't come to a conclusion on who is a 90s kid and who's not. The sad thing is and I agree with the people who said this is that some people treat it as a exclusive club when it's really not.

Additionally, I'm assuming that it's a comparison to the "2000s," in which case:

* Justin Bieber - famous starting in '09-'10
* iPad - 2010
* HDTV was standardized in the 90s, it just wasn't popular until the late 2000s.

Not to mention, many people don't like Hannah Montana, Justin Bieber, etc. Just because they were famous doesn't mean they were good.

You can define it as you want to. There are two types:

a) Born between: 1990-99 = A kid that was just born in the 90s or 'comes from' the 90s.
b) Born between: ~1982~91 = Those who spent a good amount of kid age in the 90s.

It's not really hard to understand ;)

Group a) does not recognize memories of the decade - it's just about the 199X.
Groub b) is based on clear memories of the decade.

I've heard of it for the 80s but not really the 70s. I was in my teens and 20s during the 00s and am not nostalgic over it.

Yup.
No one I know (my age, or even the younger ones between 40 and 50 years old) ever thought about or discussed whether we were a 60s kid or 70s kid or call us a kid of the 1820s, we don't care! We would never even consider thinking about that stuff, what a total waste of time!  Why do I have to labelled something or belong to a specific group where some people wanna label me as?  I was born when I was born, I personally experienced what I experienced, and that's it.

You can label me as a 1735 BC gun toting beer guzzling cat juggling used car salesman if you want.

Yep, it is easy to understand. And you're right about both groups. However, I think most 90s babies are hybrid kids because they spent half of their childhood in the 90s and the other in the 00s.

and 8 and 9. If a person was born in the late part of a decade, that person is not a hybrid kid. Also, I have acknowledged that some people on the older threads said that childhood ends at 12. Actually, it ends at 10 because a 12 year old is in middle school, is NOT on the playground, he/she has a class schedule, they are going through puberty, they realize they are too old for some things, etc. Same thing for 11 year olds.

But being 12 is still quite different from 14 or even 13 and a few months... this was  the case at least for me. 10-14 is a very strong transitional time and varies from person to person.

-Aaron Carter made it big in 2000 (he was also just as irritating as Justin Bieber)



I'm not a fan of 90s pop culture, however just to note that Aaron Carter's debut was in 1997 in Europe. He had four Top40 hits in the UK from 97-98.

Also his older brother, Nick Carter, was in the Backstreet Boys.
Aaron Carter was definitely a millennium era teen pop star, so it's understandable why people would link him with the 90s more than the 2000s.

my own definition, to be a 90's kid you have to have at least some memories and cultural awareness of at least 4 years of the decade. So anybody born right around 1991 are the last of the 90's kids.

For example I was born in 1984 but I don't consider myself an 80's anything though I do have some memories of 80's events. I did all of my growing up (6-16) in the 90's So I pretty much get all 90's references, from snap bracelets, hermans head, and no new taxes, to Y2K fears.

It's not 100% false, but a but overblown. Did your friends have mothers that did crack? Who are you hanging around with exactly.

I wouldn't really consider myself an 80's/90's hybrid. Other than family things here and there the only vivid 80's memories are some kindergarten memories, Reagans farewell address which I watched sitting on my grandpas knee, the Berlin wall falling. Perhaps a few other things here and there but I'd have to think. I can't really lay claim to the 80's

I hang with good people that are both older and younger than me. also, i dont think my friends have moms that did that.

Just because you don't have that many 80s memories doesn't mean you cant claim the 80s. you have memories from that time and no one can take that from you.

You're probably familiar with it through after-the-fact experiences, but I don't think it's possible to have any strong memories from when you are 1 or 2 years old. The earliest memories you have are likely from 1999 and even then they are probably really minimal.

Your childhood is comprised almost solely of the 2000s decade. It's a pointless debate, but to claim a time spent before the age of 4 was a major part of your growing up would be pretty silly. It is what it is.

It's probably the same like I look at the late 80s. The time was still recent and the atmosphere was still here and there when my first vivid memories started, but it was not really the late 80s anymore (except for the latter half of '89 or so).

I was born in 1994 and I consider myself a late 90s and early 2000s child. I might identify with the 90s more than other '94 borns due to the influence of my older cousins and because it's my favourite decade. That being said, the 2000s weren't that bad of a time either, I enjoyed that decade especially the first half of it.
Knowing about pop culture that was around when you were a year old doesn't necessarily you would remember experiencing it. I love the film Clueless, Alanis Morissette's first album, and A Goofy Movie, but I don't have any memories of them first being released or what.

a hybrid. You remember culture from the late 90s. It may not be much, but you're still a hybrid kid. Something tells me that you can remember the 5th generation of game consoles (N64, PS1, sega Saturn), the teen pop craze (you said you started liking music very early), the last few Disney movies of the Disney renaissance, Y2K parties, early pokemon, some non Disney movies, CD players (Discman), Walkmans, VHS, early cartoon network, early nicktoons, super soakers, tamagotchis, furbies, wonderballs, toy phones, gameboys, some PC games, and other things.

That's what I am. I'm also a late 90s/early 00s kid. I actually remember some 90s culture, but not all of it. Same thing with early 00s culture. You're right about the 00s not being that bad. It didn't get terrible until the late 00s. The early and middle part were still good and peaceful (except for 9/11). Also, just like I told the other guy, you have memories from the 90s that you can remember so you can claim the decade and no one can take that from you.

The early 00's weren't great. The economy was generally bad, the post 9/11 world was clouded with uncertainty. Remember a huge anti-war movement was put together as the Iraq War loomed so things were quite polarized.

However patriotism was generally pretty high, I think in the wake of 9/11 folks pulled together. There was a heightened sense of awareness and anxiety regarding terrorism.

It was certainly an interesting time

I loved the pop culture in the early 2000s. Politically, it was a mess but from a child's point of view, it was all I knew. I think most people an attachment to the time they were children because they saw that time with rose coloured lenses.

Lizzie McGuire started in January of 2001 (I distinctly remember), so the earliest episodes were filmed in 2000. Most of the new episodes premiered in 2001 and 2002, and then in '04 you had the movie. Not 90s at all, but close enough it's somewhat forgiveable if you were really young then to think it was 90s. It's the same with people who think Fresh Prince or Blossom are 80s shows - the earliest episodes were filmed so early in their respective decades they have a similar vibe to shows from the previous decade.

A lot of shows from the 90s didn't really look that dated to me until about 2007/8. I remember watching reruns of Boy Meets World and Sister, Sister in the early 00s, and never saw them as 'dated', but then again I didn't really nitpick at things like that until I got older.

5th to 7th grade ('97/'98-'99/'00) however was a hard time being together with pre-teens and young teenagers.

Middle school in the U.S. is typically 6th-8th grade. But sometimes it's only 7th-8th, or even 7th-9th (west coast only?). Depends on the region/particular school district.

Probably made by a mid/late '90s born, I mean it's strange to me that the late '90s is getting all this love, imo that period sucked ass big time.
These "90s kids" are stretching things from the 2000s because most of them have very little first hand memories of the '90s. In the early '00s(or now) I never called myself an '80s kid, I was too busy thinking about the future to be nostalgic, it just seems weird that mere teenagers are all misty and wistful about the '90s in 2013. ???


I agree.  I see people born in 1995 or later try to claim themselves as 90s kids online all the time.  First, they are still too young to have that kind of nostalgia and secondly, the '00s were their time, not the '90s.  Why do late-'90s born feel the need to jump on the '90s nostalgia bandwagon?  Was it much worse to be an '00s kid?

  To them, it would be better to be an early 00s kid than a late 00s kid. Also people born in the mid 90s can remember small parts of the 90s. I bet most of them remember the late 90s, but not the rest.

In the early 2000s, every year with a 199* in it still seemed recent to me. Those years were nothing more than 'dated', even 1990. There was absolutely NO nostalgia for me during that times.

I agree, things were changing rapidly enough then that (to me at least)that the early 90's seemed visually dated to me by the early 2000's but they were by no means ancient. Plenty of early 90's cars were still on the road, early 90's shows were still in heavy syndication etc.

Nowadays they're starting to look ancient as more and more remnants of them decay. For example icons like Eddie Vedder are approaching 50 which seems unthinkable to me. Back in the early 2000's he was in his 30's.

I remember when I was 14 in 2008, I was already starting to have nostalgia for the pre-2005 era. However, it was not so much because it was the 'good-ol-days', it was more because around 06/07 my life changed a lot because I moved to California and I got severe depression around that time, and I just wanted to go back to my comfort zone. By that point in time, being a preteen seemed like it was long gone.

I can definitely relate. I do have some nostalgia and respect for the '90s but in no way wish them back or idolize them like a lot of people do.  Most of the '90s nostalgia memes you see on Facebook are posted by people who didn't actually grow up in the '90s or only barely did.  I don't know why people ages 15-20 today want to idolize their "back in the day" so much.  They are really too young for that.

Of course, pretty much all of Forever 21's clothing looks the same - '90s knock-offs - aimed at teenagers who are getting to the point where they shouldn't even be able to remember the '90s at all anymore.

Seriously, I don't think there's been any other period in history that has been idolized to the point of absolute ridiculousness so much as the '90s are today. It's like being in a zombie flick or something. Jesus, enough already.  8-P

To be fair, there were a lot of 80s born folk who got caught into the 70s/80s nostalgia of the 2000s when they were in high school, despite having little to no memory of the 80s. However, I do agree that idolising of the past is a lot stronger now than it has even been. I've noticed that it's common for kids born in the 90s to wish they had been born earlier, and I know I'm one of them. And so what? Is it a crime that I don't identify with today's culture?
Personally, I'm glad the 90s fashion is back in style, because for me it means the things I've always been wearing are finally back in style. :P

I was born in 1985 in the middle of the year and I was in diapers for the first three years of it, and in preschool in 1989 I think. I have vague memories of preschool. My childhood was the 90's and early 2000's, because yes, teenage years count as childhood in my book. It wouldn't matter what era I grew up in, I'd still miss the past because life was easier back then when you're not grown.

Maybe because most of the things that happened in the 00's sucked and also because the 90's were the last family orientated decade. I was born in 1988 but I really can't remember anything clearly before 1993 (I have very few memories from 1990 to 1992 and NONE from 1988 to 1989).

How a person who was born from 1994 to 1997 (even 1998) is able to relate to anything that happened in the 90's is BEYOND me. I consider myself a 90's/early 00's kid (I guess a true 90's kid would have been someone born in 1986), but I really cherish all my 90's memories without trying to be fake. I think the post-1994 people should do the same...

I say it again, I luuuuuv the 90's and also the 80's and the 70's but I can't relate to the cultures of those decades. I am more of the late-00's and early 10's but I think it's cool when someone (specially the post-1993 crowd) wants to follow the trends of other decades. It proves they are still relevant and important in some way.


I agree about the 90's being the last family oriented decade. Will family oriented stuff make a comeback? eh...it would have to be on the heels of a conservative uprising with what we saw from 1980-1992. I can only speculate from what I've seen, but the 80's seem like a decade of excess, consumerism, greed, selfishness, jingoism. If I really had a sense of consciousness of the 80's I don't think I would liked it.

I see your point. I could never claim the 80's as my own, I was born in 84 so I don't have much of a memory of 1988-1989 but I have a good memory of all of the 90's. The clothes do look absurd now, but back then it was considered very fresh and cool.  However unlike some 60's and 70's looks that managed to make a comeback, I don't see much 90's stuff getting revived outside of campy attempts and small hipster circles.

Family oriented stuff should make a comeback once Generation Y starts having children in large numbers and those children become school age.  Right now, it seems like most of Gen Y is enjoying an extended adolescence through their 20s and I think that's why culture is so adult oriented as compared to the '90s and even 2000s.

I can remember the song "The Sign" by Ace of Base playing on the radio a lot when I was very young...like maybe 4 years old. But I couldn't be sure if it was when the song was actually new and fresh.


I was born in 1985.  The first pop song I was aware of was "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx, which came out in 1989.

I agree, someone born in '95 can still have clear memories of '99 and maybe '98.


Well I remember 1989 and I was born in 1985.  It is funny because whenever I think of the good ol days, I think of things pre-1994.  IMO, the years of 1987-1994 was an era on it's own, even with Nirvana and "Grunge" being around(though not as popular as people are making them out to be, for one thing, Guns N Roses were much more popular).

That montage was probably made by someone born in 1994 or 1995. They typically name early 2000s things as 90s.

True, but this montage is especially bad.  There was only a two year gap between Lizzie McGuire, which ended in 2004, and Hannah Montana which began in 2006. 

Do '00s kids (yes, the person that created this montage is an '00s kid) dislike their decade so much they don't want to claim it?

I'm a 2000s kid and I'm perfectly willing to admit it. I liked the 2000s, mostly. Probably because I was a kid.

In the early 2000s, every year with a 199* in it still seemed recent to me. Those years were nothing more than 'dated', even 1990. There was absolutely NO nostalgia for me during that times.


In the early 2000s, 1997-1999 seemed recent and extremely similar but 1996 and before seemed a bit far back, especially early 1993 and back.

Indeed, due to a little thing called "the gradual passage of time."

I think it was someone born in 1997-98 who made that.  A person born in 1994-95 can still remember 90s things without thinking it actually coming from the early 00s.

It could be but I've seen someone born in 1985 making an 80s kid list and listing things like Saved by the Bell, MC Hammer, and Vanilla Ice.

Before Youtube existed.
This was in the early 2000s when people born in 1985 were claiming to be 80s kids.

It must have been on an old forum that might not exist now. How many people did you see say to them "youre not an 80s kid."?

Some people born in the 70s were said this. They were annoyed and talked about how Vanilla Ice wasn't the 80s along with a lot of other things listed.

The text from the yellow picture sounds like a mixture of 70s, 80s and 90s kids.
90s kids/80s babies were not the first who have played video games or saw cartoons in color and went to amusement parks. That's absolutely laughable. We also had seat belts in cars. At least in Germany, they are common since the 70s/early 80s and I think this was not very different in the US.

The text from the white picture at the bottom seems to be for those born in the 90s, as I feel too old for some of that - even though, there is also stuff in it which is older - and therefore not really targeted at 90s babies (e. g. Interview with the Vampire.). Pretty random summary if you ask me.

Ironically, 90s kids DID watch the Disney Channel when it had the old cartoons and also newer programming like Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, TailSpin, and reruns of Ducktales.

That definitely true. Our parents, grandparents,  and great grandparents were the people who first went to amusement parks, played video games (they all remember the Atari),  and they also were all the first to record anything on a VCR. Another thing that laughable is that in the yellow photo, it says that 80s babies were pioneers of of walkmans and chat rooms when in reality it was the 50s, 60s and 70s babies who were the pioneers of these things as the walkman has been around since the early 80s and during the 90s,  most 80s babies were in elementary school or middle school whem chat rooms were rising. 

Flaws in the white photo is that it says Sabrina the teenage with is a Disney film  when it's not and Disney Channel had existed since 1983. The characters in the nightmare before Christmas are not emo. They are actually scary.

Last thing 90s kids need to know is that even though Lizzie McGuire was a good show,  it premiered in 2001, not the 90s.


Ironically, 90s kids DID watch the Disney Channel when it had the old cartoons and also newer programming like Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, TailSpin, and reruns of Ducktales.
That's if they had the channel as it was premium back then., but what they should know is that the channel has existed since 80s and that our parents could have actually watched the channel as they were the targeted age at the time.
